We all are given one body. There is no back up body if we choose to abuse the one we have. Expect that, if abused, in time our body will give out or retaliate. If, instead, we choose to fuel our body with nutritious food, feed our mind positive thoughts and self love, and honor our body by moving on a regular basis, we will be rewarded with health and longevity. My definition of longevity is living a full, vibrant life while feeling good and being able to do all of the things we want to do. I don’t want to simply exist, I want to LIVE. I hope to inspire you to do the same.
Pay particular attention to the changes you feel in your body when you eat primarily single ingredient, whole food items versus how your mood and intestinal tract feel when you eat fast foods, packaged foods, simple sugars, and greasy foods (to name a few). Many clients have reported back to me how their brain fog and fatigue greatly diminish after only a week of clean eating.
When you begin to move your body consistently, aches and pains decrease. Our body was designed to move, not to be stagnant. Notice how you feel after sitting for hours versus how you feel when you walk, stretch, and deeply breathe. Moving in nature is particularly rewarding and allows the mind and body to connect more deeply. Nature is naturally healing.
Improving your thoughts, showing gratitudes, & giving yourself love are all examples of how to elevate your overall well being and attitude. Although it may sound cliche, it’s true that our mind is truly so powerful that it can make or break us. Many people find it very easy to criticize themselves and harder to compliment themselves. The latter will naturally draw other positive people to you, wanting to share in the positive nature you exude.
Eating clean, movement, and healthy thoughts are a form of self respect
- Set an example
- Say twice daily gratitudes
- Eat recognizable, single ingredient foods
- Move your body throughout the day
- Encourage others to do the same
