There’s one thing I know for sure, and that is that living a healthy life takes some work and and a little self discipline (especially in the beginning).
In the beginning it can be a challenge, especially when you’re first starting out, and transitioning away from a typical western lifestyle, and standard american diet of too many donuts, potato chips and vegging out on the couch and being too sedentary for hours on end.
But eventually, little by little, the good habits start to become like second nature, and more and more a natural part of your everyday life.
But it does take a certain level of awareness and self discipline.
The good news is that it will make you a better person overall in every area of your life.
Now, in comparison to the industrial medical complex which does not teach people how to be healthy nor does it equip them with the bare essential wellness tools to live a healthy life.
It seems to me that most doctors and the medical system in general should be teaching us, and encouraging us to live more healthy, holistic lives, and offer us skills and resources to help us create habits that can sustain our health, happiness and wellbeing for a lifetime.
Sure, I’m grateful for hospitals and the ER room, but
Pill-popping and injections and laboratory treatments that only focus on treating the symptoms and not the root cause should be a last resort,
This essentially tells people that there’s a shortcut to health that basically allows the people to be irresponsible and think that a lifetime of unhealthy eating, and bad lifestyle choices can be fixed with just a visit to the doctor, or some magic pill.
But this is my personal opinion though.
Our medical professionals should be telling us to guzzle fresh pressed juice and buy fresh, nutrient dense food from the farmers market.
But wait, there’s no money to be made in sending people to the market to buy nutritious food.
Why would they do that, it would put them out of business.
Those sneaky little rascals 🙂
So, what’s the solution?
We either pay the farmers now with fresh, nutritious, locally grown food, or we will end up paying the doctors later to try and nurse us back to health from a lifetime of unhealthy choices.
So try to drink a little fresh pressed juice each day, spend time in nature hugging a tree,
Find a natural spring in the mountains or countryside to get fresh living spring water to drink and nourish your body.
If you can’t pronounce the ingredients on the food label, or better yet, your grandparents couldn’t understand the ingredient, then just leave it on the shelf and opt for more natural, whole foods.
And surround yourself around people who love and respect you.
Fast a little, and move your body continuously, all day long.
And especially think about beautiful things with your thoughts which are directly tied to our emotional wellbeing.
These are just a few, incremental and positive lifestyle habits that can be good for you, but the list can go on, and on.
And my personal favorite, make love every day.
So try to make a commitment to add one new healthy habit or routine into your life each day (or atleast each week or month.
At the end of the year, this will compound into awesome results.
I wish you the best of luck.
May peace be with you.
