Few people recognize just how important the relationship between one’s educational level is to one’s overall state of health. And by educational levels, we are not just referring to formal education, at the end of which you receive a formal degree…we are referring to the lifelong education where the individual is constantly learning, improving, adopting new ways and perspectives of looking at the world. Obviously, the basic educational foundations must be in place and are of tremendous advantage to one’s overall sense of well-being.


There are both direct and indirect reason s why education is important: the indirect reasons:


The higher your educational levels, the more likelihood of your getting a good paying, challenging job, and the better your pay, the greater your access to better food, higher qualities of health care, and leisure/recreation. Having your basic needs met, means less stress, and better control over the circumstances of your life, and less stress…a major underlying factor of many of the diseases in our modern world.


A lot of the focus in this section is on building a firm basic educational foundation upon which you can build for life long learning.
