When you hear the word ‘diet’ what comes to mind?
As I was searching for an image today, I intended to type “MediTation”, and instead typed “MediCation”! How often do I do this with different words? All the time! You see, the thing is that our minds automatically go where we are comfortable. We drive to places that we’ve been to a thousand times… even though we meant to drive somewhere new. We pick up the phone intending to call a friend, and instead dial the number for MOM, because… it’s familiar. We’ve been calling Mom for as long as we can remember!
So, what does this mean? I have no idea! I’m not a psychologist!
BUT, it makes me think… are we programmed to think and behave a certain way? Do we look for mediCation before something like mediTation to heal?
Don’t get me wrong, I believe there is a time and place for medication. Our modern-day advances in technology and medicines are life-saving… to say the least. But, do we jump to it for every ailment before exploring other options?
Tom tells us that exercise matters… not just exercise, but the right exercise! Taking care of our bodies with stretching, foam rolling and exercises that push our bodies is key.
So, my question today is this… how could you improve your circumstance by improving your whole-body wellness?
For me, it’s a focus on taking time to listen to my body! It so often tells me when it needs REST to recharge. Or, if I’m feeling anxious and restless, it’s telling me to get out and take a run! Share your thoughts below…
