I spent part of 2017 and all of 2018 actively trying to answer this question. What I found out was, it's different for everybody. So, for me, a healthy mind meant controlling my anxiety / anger and to slow down the negative thoughts that were running rampant in my brain 24/7. I wanted life to be happy and fun not dreadful and boring (which is how I felt a lot of the time).

Moving to an island gave me that slap-in-the-face I needed to realize that life didn't suck and that I was making it suck.
Often, when I talk to people about getting healthy their first response is, "it's so confusing, I would just rather not". I get where they're coming from I was there too, BUT it's so much easier than people make you believe. You don't have to go nuts counting calories and macros or working your ass off at the gym for 6 hours a day , you just have to do what you already know how to do... make better choices.
Everyone knows how to eat healthy, more fruits and vegetables right? So why does everyone make it so complex?! Well, I can answer that too! Not everything works for everyone.
