What is health?
Is health just "not being sick?"
Or is it more than that?
According to the World Health Organization, "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." This definition was adopted in 1948. And I think it still applies.
For me, a big part of being healthy is being happy and spending time with people I enjoy, and doing what I love.
I just got a huge dose of all of that this past week.
I went to Los Angeles to work on my upcoming CD of funny songs.
It was a happily exhausting 8 days- long hours in the studio followed by evenings of tweaking material and working out logistics for the next day.
The amazing thing was, even though on the outside it would appear I was under a crazy amount of stress, I felt great. In fact, I had zero physical pain the entire trip.
How can I be unhappy when I'm working with massively talented people who I really enjoy hanging out with, and singing my ridiculous songs? I can't!
And somehow, my happiness level affects my pain level.
I like to think everyone has something in their lives that is creative and fun, that you get "lost" in and lose all sense of time because you're happily engrossed. I hope you do!
The new CD is set to officially come out in October.
You can pre-order a copy now and get a signed copy before the rest of the world, postage free!
