Health is one of the greatest assets of your being, and your eyes are of the most important organs in your body. For without vision, you see nothing, and your perceptions of the world and your experiences will be totally different. The importance of vision health cannot be overstressed.
Many people don’t pay much attention to their vision health as long as they can see. But vision health, like the health of any organ, may deteriorate over the years; worse, the deterioration will be gradual and subtle, but permanent and devastating long term.
The overall health of an individual is often ignored, just as Dr. Deepak Chopra, M.D. bestselling author, and founder of the Chopra enter for Wellbeing, once said: “If you don’t take care of your health today, you will be forced to take care of your illness tomorrow.”
To take care of your overall health and wellbeing, you need wisdom, and not just common sense. The explanation is that health and wellness have to be holistic: that is, it includes, the body, the mind, and the soul. For example, in vision health, it is not just relaxing your eyes when you work for too long on your computer; your mind can stress you, and the toxic desires of the body can adversely affect the mind and the souls as well. Wellness wisdom is about the body, the mind, and the soul—they all play a pivotal role in your overall wellness, which ultimately affect your vision health as well.
Look beyond what your eyes can see, and that is wisdom in living.
