Firstly, there are the reactive types – they're the types that whenever something comes up, they spur into action to try & fix it (aka make it go away).
But ‘reactives’…, are you doing too many random things that are actually counteractive to your health? This type of behaviour can lead to frantic, haphazard actions where motivation fizzles after the problem goes away (until next time).
Then, secondly, there are the proactive types – they're the future-thinking types, anticipating calamity by adopting good health practices.
But ‘proactives’…, what's your true focus? Health? Or avoiding being sick in the future? This type of behaviour can lead to adopting standardised actions that make you feel good but may not actually be doing what’s needed. Shock comes up in the future when things go wrong anyway.
I'd like to propose an even better health focus than reactive or proactive.
An ‘interactive’ approach. Let me explain.
