“Your intuition is your best friend.” – Yogi Tea quote
Aloha, my Friend,
Do you feel your life becoming more balanced?
Have you taken a few moments to assess
which areas you need to place your
focus on in order to feel better, healthier, more
energized, more rested, more at peace in your heart?
Do you find yourself gravitating toward distracted, unconscious behaviors, for example, mindless eating
in front of the TV or computer?
Or, have you been feeling a lack of
appetite, or just not eating enough, because you are too
busy (or so you tell yourself) to eat?
It is crucial to your good health that you consciously nourish the mind, body, and soul every day.
Give yourself what you need, not only to survive, but to flourish!
Because every living thing needs water to live and grow, when there is no rain, people have to regulate
the situation to ensure there will be enough water to go around.
Often times they regulate by restriction…
What type of restriction is necessary for you,
in your life? Think on the answer that will guide you to your most
balanced state of health and happiness.
Some of us need to restrict isolated entertainment
(TV, video games, computer usage, etc.). Although they may have a time and a place (and can even be restorative when we’ve been drained by too much socialization), they are TIME Killers, as at worst can be ENERGY drainers, and deplete one’s health.
While you may think you feel relaxed using them,
they are actually stimulation to the nervous system,
which ultimately leads to an accumulation of stress…
Why not take that extra time and instead go to a yoga class,
do a few minutes of meditation (or just quiet observation
of the breath and the mind), or find a great new
book that inspires and educates you?
Maybe you need to be more
conscious of your eating—or restrict it–by making time to eat three to five healthy meals a day.
This is important.
The improvements may not be obvious immediately,
but anything you do repeatedly will make a
significant and noticeable change in you over time. (That is true of things both good and bad.)
If you’re eating junk, you will begin to feel like junk.
Weight or fat gain is inevitable.
Energy depletion is likely.
Digestive issues may ensue.
If you’re running ragged, not eating,
chances are your metabolism is being
thrown out of whack, and you will start to see
the imbalance play out in the form of weight gain and/or blood sugar
issues (irritability, peaks and dips in energy, dizziness, etc.)
Take fifteen contemplative minutes and ask yourself the following:
What am I creating with my habits?
What would I like to create?
What should I change, starting immediately?
You will know what you need to do by the answers
that come to you…
Trust your heart;
Trust your “gut instincts”.
Start right now.
Until next time,
