Give yourself permission to be healthy.
If there ever is a word with that is more overused then the word ‘health’, the planet would explode.
We are bombarded with opinions about health and what it means to be healthy. One news source tells you Fats are bad for you, someone else may tell you it’s great for you, and your family will have all manner of opinions about what’s good and what’s bad. With all of these differing philosophies, it’s easy to lose your sanity on what you should do and instead do nothing at all. (Ugh! One day they tell me eggs are bad for me, the next day they tell me they’re great… eff it! I’m going to go eat some cake.)
What you’re seeing in the health industry is the battle between science and money. Why is a large french fry and soda less money than a pack of blueberries? Why is the immediate response to most mainstream doctors is to give us pills to mask the problem versus figuring out how to fix the problem. There are so many facts and figures, opinions and antidotal answers, it’s hard to know who to trust.
Ultimately, you are the one who decides what’s best for you. The choice to be healthy or not is up to you. Opt out of the games. Trust your gut. Experiment and find out what works best for you.
There’s one thing I know and that’s why you should want to get healthy in the first place:
What’s one thing that affects our ability to create and enjoy life?
I’ve experienced first hand the frustration and despair of Chronic Fatigue and low energy. If the energy you use is more than the energy you generate. Without enough energy, you are a slave to your health.
Eating whole, moving your body, breath work, and aligning your daily habits to the lifestyle of your dreams is how you can build up positive energy.
