Protect Your Mind & Body

These days we have to keep up our guard for traps, toxins and tall tales.  Cancer is running rampant, people are fatigued, and food is not food.  Oh my gosh, how is a human expected to live on planet earth and stay mentally and physically healthy?  The answer is mindfulenss, nutrtion and education for our mind and body.  

PROTERCT YOUR BODY 

Thinking about our choices and the consequence they will have on our bodies is a first step and an excellent way to shield ourselves from the many poisons in our midst.  Everything that we put into our body affects our cells, and therefore to run a clean engine we should put clean food into it.  Clean food is from the earth and must be refrigerated, not a plastic package full of colored things that sits on a shelf for 12 months.  The chemicals and scraps added to so called food to make it look pretty and taste good, are hurting us.  Same thing with meds, many of them have killing agents in them and the FDA approves.  It’s uncanny how the FDA is skeptical about essential oils, which are from vegetation of the earth and are without side effects, but permits us to eat carcinogens placed in edibles.  Learn to read labels and understand the value of what you are putting in your mouth so that you will begin to advocate for yourself when it comes to choosing and eating well.  Read about the most dense nutrtion possible for your body, and then slowly begin to add it to your diet.  

PROTECT YOUR MIND

MINDFULNESS

Love technology, but to a limit.  Computers, phones, screens, gadgets, watches etc are things we must guard ourselves against.  Not everything we see, hear and read is good or positive for us.  Additionally, who is the source, and furthermore, how much time are we dedicating to non-human communication?  Everyone in my family has an iPhone now, and I noticed that we each are spending way too much time in front of, and with our phones.  This action is interfering with our conversations, wtiting and discussions.  Time to cut back on technology and increase bonding with each other.   HOW?  Get back to books.

 I recently asked my family to begin connecting in a deeper way with #Family Lit Time.  This activity allows us to sit and read a book out loud to each other and discuss the storyline and characters.  We are together, we are learning, we are listening and we are engaging through story.  It wasn’t hard to to select a book to read.  My younger daughter told me how much she loved reading To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee and she expressed that it is the very best book she has ever read.  Sophia told me that after reading  To Kill A Mockingbird she will never judge another person again.  There is more she liked about the book, but her fondness of it is enough for us, so we are reading TKAM.  We finally got through chapter one, it’s challenging getting everyone together for 45 minutes, and we have spent minutes at a time discussing a sentence or a character.  We are thinking, we are bonding, are listening and we are engaging.  Plus, our Family Lit Time is really fun.  

EDUCATION

Read!  Read! Read!  I’ve learned a lot from Dr Andrew Weil and David Wolfe in the category of health and wellness.  You can read books on how to motivate yourself too.  Just research authors and check out reviews and start reading to learn how to keep your mind and body protected and healthy.  Take a class, listen to webinars, go back to school, just keep increasing your knowledge so you can increase your health.  

Protect your mind and body, your most precious investment.
