Being healthy is not just about the food on your plate;
it’s about the water you drink, the air you breathe, the love in your life, the amount you exercise, whether you have a fulfilling career and spiritual practice, and so on. Primary food and the food you eat (secondary food) should be looked at together rather than separately.
Primary food includes elements such as a meaningful spiritual practice, an inspiring career, regular and enjoyable physical activity, and honest and open relationships that feed your soul and your hunger for living.
The more primary food we receive, the less we depend on secondary food. The opposite is also true. The more we fill ourselves with secondary food, the less we are able to receive the primary food of life.
By adding healthier foods into your diet, you will gently crowd out the ones that no longer serve you. More fruits, vegetables, and water will naturally lead to less caffeine, sugar, and processed food.
We are a society who wants a pill for every ill. By slowing down and allowing yourself the rest you need, your body has the opportunity to heal on a deeper level.
If you are craving something, listen to your body and find healthy ways to satisfy the craving.
Notice and honor how your body reacts to different foods and eat what works for you – not what you think you should eat based on the media and other people.
When you make your well-being a priority and view your health as a form of self-care, significant changes occur.
No one way of approaching health will work for everyone, but if you stick to a gradual introduction of basic changes, you will experience a larger shift without much effort!
There’s no secret formula – each person is unique.
Fulfilling life is the real fuel for happiness and balance.
You could be eating all the kale and broccoli in the world, but if you’re not nourishing yourself on a holistic level, you will not feel vibrant.
