“Happiness is not a matter of intensity, but of balance, order, rhythm, and harmony.” –Thomas Merton

While the most basic definition of health is “the state of being free from illness or injury,” Health Verdict believes that health is much broader than that. It is our understanding that health encompasses a wider range of ideas including physical, emotional and mental well-being. We think that balancing all of these concepts is the key to better health.

Through our posts, we want to join our readers on a more personal level. Regardless of age, sex, class, life situation, or anything else that makes us “different” from each other, we think that we can all come together with the goal of living a healthier and more balanced life.

It is our hope to engage with people on many levels. We are interested in knowing what science says about different perspectives. We want to join people looking to share their own stories about balance and outlooks on life. We wish to provide positive, relatable, uplifting and helpful ideas that speak to people in terms of overall happiness and health.

We aim to be completely honest and applicable to everyone. We think that even if our paths in life are different, there are times at which these paths intersect, and it is at these points that the lessons we learn will be the same. At HealthVerdict.com, it’s not about mastering everything all at once – it’s about finding your balance.

We hope that you will join us in finding your best self with the belief that a healthy life begins with balance!

Warmest Regards,

Erin & Derek
