Who doesn’t want to feel like they’re at the peak of their wellness every day? The idea of wellness is not simply having more energy; it’s is energy combined with the thirst for happiness and celebrating the joys of living our best life. It is also feeling healthy, balanced and positive.
Most people want to feel healthier and happier, yet are unsure of where to start, or think that they need to make radical changes to their diet or lifestyle to achieve it. The thing is though, you don’t have to make a huge shift to gain benefits of wellness. It’s simple, and starts from within. Every single thing you eat and drink has an effect on your body. Some foods act as medicine, some as poison and some as nourishment. And yet, we use food for other things besides nourishment – to give the illusion of comfort and protection, as well as alleviating boredom, anxiety, emptiness and sadness.
The simplest way to assess if the foods you are eating are working for you is to assess how you really feel – mentally, physically, emotionally. Wellness is a state of mind, yet it is also achieved through what we feed our bodies. If you feed your body with the wrong fuel, you’ll feel nothing but tired, dull, heavy and unmotivated. So, to regain your balance from within, and find your ultimate wellness, the best way is to start with small steps that suit you as an individual, and learning to listen to what your body actually needs versus what it wants.
