Tomorrow evening at midnight we ring in the New Year and with it, like it or not, we take stock and consider our resolve for the next twelve months. Many of those thoughts will turn to health and wellness, the state of our personal vitality and goals to set, whether intentionally written or encased in mental resolve.
To many of us the wisdom of regular chiropractic care, eating local natural food is a “no-brainer”. We know that what we consume and how we move is soon expressed as our physical being, good or not so good. Yet we continue to see diabetes, obesity, heart disease, immune deficits and other expressions of dis-ease continue to rise. In society and also within our circle of family, friends and patients.
Daily exercise, fresh air, whole fresh food, mindful supplements and spiritual intention all contribute to this goal of optimal wellness. A daily challenge is to make sense of, and navigate, the increasingly present barrage of fads, commercial offerings and “get fit quick” schemes that inundates our attention.
I believe there is tremendous value in simplicity. Not that I practice it that well, however my intention is in that direction. Simple food. Simple regular movement and exercise. And simple concepts of nutrition, i.e. eat what will spoil, and is available with the smallest carbon footprint possible. My recent reading of Paul Robert’s book The End of Food pointedly brought to my attention the importance understanding the impact of food in our society and also the fragility and precarious position of this most essential of daily needs.
This new year can be the healthiest of your life! Give yourself a break and simplify! Eat well and be well, and don’t forget to move! And I also strongly believe that the more we are educated on the current state of food on our planet, where it comes from, nutrient content, sustainability, etc. the more simple it will be to navigate the flood of information we encounter each day.
Knowledge and awareness. Kinda takes the stress off…
