But how many of us, even if we don't have anything hugely wrong with us, accept a slightly poorer standard of wellbeing? What happens when we put up with a little niggle thinking that is just part of being human? What happens when we accept 'kind of lousy' as our benchmark for 'normal'?
i never feel great
Some weeks on, and feeling much better, I was telling a friend about it and said that it had been such a strange experience for me as I am so used to feeling great and I had to adjust to feeling rubbish every day.
He went quiet for a moment and looked thoughtful.
'You're lucky' he said ' I don't think I could ever say I feel 'great'. There is always something - a little pain or something that bothers me'
while it's only a little thing
When we accept these things as 'normal' and when we don't ever feel great, we are accepting much less than we could have.
We are downgrading our expectations and our ability to feel brilliant.
We are learning to live with something that we could resolve.
We are missing an opportunity to tackle an issue while it is not too big a deal.

Feeling good is their new normal.
Now doesn't that sound better?
over to you
Or are you someone who has made some changes in your life that have taken you from feeling pretty average to feeling so much better?
