We would never start out for a long drive without gas in the car or leave our pets without food while we are gone for several days. And yet I find many people who forget to eat or take food with them if they are going to be gone for several hours. Both our cars and our pets need nutrition and fuel everyday. So do our bodies.
Many cars require premium gas. It is easy to forget, but your body also works better on premium fuel. By premium fuel I simply mean whole grains, vegetables, fruit and lean meats. The energy and vibration of your body will rise considerably by feeding it well.
Two other essential factors about the basics of human self-care are
exercise and rest. Just being reasonably active by moving your body
with walking, gardening or playing will increase your current
health and add to your longevity. Working out at the gym or
playing a sport is even better, if not overdone. Any movement
counts and adds to your health. Current studies show that even ten
minutes of walking is beneficial.
Rest and sleep are the third leg of the stool of balancing your
basic health. In this fast-paced society it is easy to keep going
by drinking caffeine when twenty minutes of rest is what your body
When you are stressed or going through change you will fare far
better if you return to the basics of self care; good food,
adequate exercise, deep sleep and daily rest.
"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then rest afterward."
- Spanish proverb
