Healthy Choices For Your Life
How you live your life is truely a self choice. And there are so many choices to make. We are bombarded from every side about what we should do, what we should eat, that we should get a certain amount of exercise, that we should believe a certain way, that we should use this product or that product. The list of shoulds and should nots are end- less! Keep this is mind. The word should will bring on guilt quicker than any other word because it is negative. Just think about it and you will realize what I mean.
Some of the choices we have before us today concern whether to use all natural and organic products. There is a lot to be said for using them and in my own opinion not a lot to be said against. Some of us feel that it is important because it means we are allowing the earth to support us as it was meant to. For others it is a neccesity because of allergies and other sensitivities. Some believe it is all a health issue. For instance, some believe that burning candles with dyes in them is harmful to our health. I would think for that to be unhealthy a person would need to be shut up in a small closet with many candles burning all the time for several days on end! And there are some that choose it just because they like to follow what others are doing.
Other choices we are presented with every day is our diets. Back in the day people were concerned with eating the foods they liked. Now things have definetly changed! There are low fat diets, low carb diets, high protein diets, becoming vegetarian, vegan or macrobiotic. Every- one is talking about what each of us should eat or not eat. There’s that word should again! What chemicals animals are given in their food is a concern, or what chemicals we use on our gardens and fields, growing our food. Organic food growing gives us a healthy choice.
What is most difficult about all these choices is that each choice is touted as being the best for everyone. So how do you choose? Talk to your body and don’t be afraid to experiment with different things so you can make an informed choice. Listen to what your body is telling you as you experiment. Let your body, mind and soul do the choosing!
