“Be the change you want to see in the world”
Although our nutrition is of the utmost importance, taking care of your mind and your spiritual needs can be even more important. If you are not taking care of your mind and spirit, you will undue all of the good you are doing while focusing on your body and nutritional needs. We are holistic. The core of the word holistic is holy. Holistic means whole, mind, body and spirit. They are woven together and overlap in every way. You must learn to be balanced and have focus in all areas so you’re not undoing in one area, while overly focusing on another. It’s really a simple balance, but will take some practice on your part to return to whole That’s why I recommend a Holistic Life Coach or Holistic Health Coach to support you along the way. We all need support in our lives when we make changes. You may have a very supportive person in your life that will support you, but if not, hire a coach. You cannot ignore one area of your life without consequences. Remember, you reap what you sow.
Many of us have learned goal planning over the years as a way to achieve success and to get the things we want in life. I’ve found that without true purpose behind your goals, you will never feel fulfilled and something will always be missing. Have you ever said to yourself, I’ll be happy when….I graduate from college and I’m out on my own, when I land that job, when my business makes money, when I have kids, when the kids are grown, when I have money for retirement, when my illness is healed, when I retire…the list goes on and on. Don’t wait for happiness. It’s here now. It’s in our day-to-day lives and all the simple pleasures we experience each day. They key is living a life based on purpose. Believe you are exactly where you want and need to be on your path from day-to-day.
