This inquiry forms the title for my first-ever self-created infographic (who knew you could throw these things together so easily at infogram.com?). But it's also a kinda freaky question — with an equally freaky answer.
As the chart indicates, if you are healthy and flourishing — physically, mentally and emotionally — you are, statistically speaking, very much in the minority (20%). Eek!
You can get more of the official facts and statistics in my feature "Being Healthy Is a Revolutionary Act: Renegade Perspectives for Thriving in a Mixed Up World." But the main thing you gotta know is that if you are not one of the lucky few represented by those happy-healthy green figures, you needn't beat yourself up about it.
Because, guess what? There's a reason you're struggling: You've got an entire culture working against you — one that has successfully sickened fully 80% of the U.S. adult population to date.
Of course, it's not too late for you to break ranks with the majority. That's what the healthy revolution is all about.
Anyway, just wanted to share that infographic insight and let you mull on it a bit. Please feel free share it to Pinterest, Facebook or Twitter if you dig (see easy social-sharing tools at left).
I invite you to mull a little, too, on what it might be like to live in a world where the ratios of healthy and not-so-healthy people were reversed. Imagine the difference that would make in our communities, in our economies, in our families, schools, companies. Oh my goodness, it gives me goosebumps.
