Health Tips - Increasing Health Around You

Increasing Health Around You

If you reward success, you will get more success. If you punish success, you will get less of it. If you reward failure, you will get more of that. You get more of whatever you acknowledge and pay lots of attention to.

For example in sports, if a star football player is heavily fined every time he makes a touchdown, he will cease to make touchdowns. Only an irrational person would punish success in the field of competitive sports, and they would soon be given the boot for harming the game.

In the field of business, this principle is also generally understood. A business tends to flourish to the extent that its successes are rewarded. It is very hard to prosper and endure competitively otherwise.

In the area of health, it is in your best interests for those around you to succeed in being healthy and productive. In order to increase the health statistics around you, try these ideas:

1. If someone starts healthier habits, reward them by verbally acknowledging how well they are doing. You could let them have their choice regarding some activity, such as watching their choice of movie or making them something special that they enjoy. For small children, you could let them pick something from a bag of prizes from a bargain store.

2. If someone is healthy, free of illness, or energetic, acknowledge them! Make them a “We appreciate you — stay well!” card or email them your approval for being a good health example.

If you reward a person for doing poorly, they will increase the extent to which they do poorly. Who doesn’t want attention, approval, and rewards?!

3. If someone is sick, please assist them to get better. But try not to make them feel that illness is the key to winning your attention and affection. Worrying and fussing over someone rewards illness. Instead maintain and communicate your confidence that they have the ability to get better and be well. See Healing Environment for Adults and Healing Environment for Children for more ideas on assisting someone to better health.

Bodies can heal when people are more rewarded for being healthy and doing the right things than they are rewarded for being sick and doing unhealthy things.

Much love,
