Achieving a real health outcome in real life is as simple as applying a few fundamental principles of self-improvement. To best explain this, consider what happens when an airplane takes off from Los Angeles and flies to Tokyo. The pilot doesn't just taxi the plane onto the runway, point it toward Tokyo, slam on the thrusters and then hope for the best. Instead, the pilot heads in the general direction of Tokyo and, during the flight, makes thousands of tiny adjustments to the plane's direction in order to make sure it stays on course.
Using this method of assessing the current situation and applying small corrections, the plane can land on a runway in Tokyo, even unpiloted. The same principles apply to your health. If you want to get to a desired health destination, you must chart a course from where you are today to where you want to be, and any time you find yourself off course, you must make adjustments to put yourself back on course.
This requires two basic things: Number one, the ability to assess your current health situation. Are you off course from your health goals? Are you suffering from chronic pain or various disease symptoms that you do not wish to be suffering from? Do you have lower energy than you'd like? In order to make this assessment, you must develop the skill of listening to your body. It's called "body awareness," and it is an essential skill for improving your health over the long-term.
The second skill you must have is the ability and courage to make changes in your life that will put you back on the track to your destination. This means, for example, that if you have kidney stones, and you also happen to drink four or five sodas a day, it may be time to adjust your soda intake in order to get you back on track to your destination of being free of kidney stones. The consumption of soft drinks promotes kidney stones, so you have to be willing to make changes that alter your direction and keep you on course.
