When I ask you "what do you feed yourself?", I'm not just talking about food. Sometimes, when we feel rotten, wore down and unhealthy, it is majority of what we are putting in that is giving us the bad outcome. Not just what we eat, but what we watch, talk about, listen to, and even read. I am sure, by society standards, that we feed ourselves plenty of bad things like news stories of violence and sickos, fast food, soft drinks, gossip, alcohol, processed foods, porn, or self-criticism. If we keep putting bad in to our minds and bodies surely the outcome is not going to be good and stressing over things that we can't control will also run us down.
Why not make an effort to purposely feed ourselves with only what makes us feel good, be it healthy food, a favorite song on cd instead of the morning news, a glass of water instead of diet mountain dew, a walk around the block after a long day at work, yoga or a good stretch? I feel like if we turned off all the bad and turned on the good for a full week we would each begin to see a huge difference in our individual worlds. It could actually change the way we eat, sleep and treat others.
Before all my diet changes, I had never really felt like I fed my body foods that made it feel good and refreshed. Stopping to get a biscuit and an energy drink on the way to work was just the way it was. But now I can truly tell a difference in the way that I feel. Now if I can just make myself exercise!
Why not try it for one week? Make a small list of just a few that make you feel "not-so-good" and replace them with something better, something that has a more positive twist on things.
