The Great Thanksgiving
The English word “health” comes from the Old English word hale, meaning “wholeness, being whole, sound or well,”. Hale comes from the Proto-Indo-European root kailo, meaning “whole, uninjured, of good omen”. Kailocomes from the Proto-Germanic root khalbas, meaning “something divided”. Most people accept that health can be divided into two broad aspects – physical and mental health.
We frequently hear, “When you have your health you have everything”. It can be true. Feeling good, having energy, having good mobility makes all the difference in a day. Being ill is very hard! When you have good health, your energy and vitality certainly affect your happiness in life. Being grateful for your health changes your life! The practice in this book study today is on exactly that!
