Practice Self Care And Enjoy The Life You Deserve.
Your mood is affected by what you eat. Eliminating processed foods, limiting your intake of cookies, cakes and other baked goods and eating a whole foods diet is best. Following these simple guidelines can provide tremendous benefit both for now and for later as we work to avoid age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s.
The elimination, or limitation, of sugar, can help you to deal with stress in a more calm and mindful fashion. A practice of yoga and meditation is also of much benefit.
As we look towards these suggestions it is easy to see how integrated our well being really can be.
- The practice of yoga helps us to deal with stress which in turn helps to protect our mind.
- Exercise helps us to have a strong body.
- A strong body includes a strong heart, well functioning lungs, diabetes management, and weight control.
- Good health offers stamina for work, for life, and for fun.
- Yoga allows us to build our core strength.
- Core strength helps with protecting our backs and the rest of the body from injury.
We also receive inward help with a good yoga practice.
We truly connect to our spirit when we turn our thoughts inward. It is a wonderful way to practice self-care.
Spirituality can mean something different for everyone.
The commonality is that this connection to your spirit, or lack thereof, drives thoughts, decisions, desires, and actions. It may come from your connection to your inner goddess, a connection to god or a connection to something else entirely.
When we bring these beautiful parts of ourselves together we are practicing true self-care. It is important to always be mindful and look towards the health of our body, mind, and spirit. In doing so we provide proper physical, mental and spiritual nourishment. We must look toward our relationship with ourselves, respect ourselves and, finally, appreciate our wonderful qualities. We must look towards our relationship with others, how we appreciate the gifts that others offer and how we communicate our needs, wants and desires.
