When you have your health you have everything may be the truest saying ever. Being healthy means that you can put forward your best efforts.
When you are not feeling well it is difficult to do anything. It is impossible to change your life and it is impossible to improve your life.
There of course is a bit of a catch when it comes to overall good health, self-esteem and wellness in general. You cannot have one without the other. They are all linked together.
In other words with out self-esteem you cannot have good health. When your health is suffering it affects your self-esteem. It is a vicious cycle. Many eating disorders are related to low self esteem.
Studies have indicated that people with high self-esteem:
- Experience less colds/flus and stomach viruses
- Get through colds/flus and stomach viruses faster
- Report overall feeling better
- Have less “stress” related diseases
For all intents and purposes self-esteem can easily make your healthier or make you ill.
Eating disorders can easily disrupt your health most eating disorders are in part caused by self-esteem issues. Of course it is not quite as simple as increasing your self-esteem to end eating disorders but it is a link in the puzzle to healing.A Word About Eating Disorders
