'Keeping it Healthy' with MJ

 

Be Healthy Be Happy

 

When you were growing up and adults asked you what you wanted to be when you grow up, I bet you responded with an answer based on your life experience at that point in your life, with absolutely no hesitation. Usually your answer was not what the adult asking wanted to hear, but you would keep feeding them answers until they were happy. But my question is, why weren't we ever taught the difference between what we wanted to BE versus what we wanted to DO. Would you have ever thought that you wanted to be healthy and happy when you grow up? This is an important lesson that is missing from our school system. Why don't they teach children how to be happy and healthy in schools? Where literacy and math is just as important as creativity, spirituality, physical health, mental health and community/service to others. Education is so focused on making a living rather than making a life.

 

The video below is a Ted talk from a teenager who was pulled out of the traditional school system and was home schooled. You will see that he still learns everything that traditional schools would have taught him, but at a completely different level. Just by teaching him how to BE healthy and happy when he grows up has propelled him to think about what he would like to DO when he grows up. This way of teaching has pulled together his creativity, life skills and love for skiing towards the thought of entrepreneurship. This was a brave move done by his parents, but I think his parents were on to something.


Don't stress, it is never too late to want to be healthy and happy when you grow up...

 

-Living your life and being healthy about it!
