There is a lot to consider when we think about being healthy and happy. The first thing that might come to mind when we think about our health is diet.
What is food? It’s not a stupid question because there are a lot of “products” out there that are not really food, or at least have very little actual food included in the product. According to the Oxford Dictionary, the definition of food is “any nutritious substance that people or animals eat or drink, or that plants absorb in order to maintain life and growth.” The key word in there is “nutritious.”
Our bodies need the nutrition that comes from real food to function at its best. Without proper nutrition, our health may decline with every day that passes.
It’s not just eating well thou. There are many things that contribute to ill health and an overwhelmed immune system. The pollution we breathe, lack of sleep, and stress also contribute. Even our attitude plays a role in our health. So where do we even start? We start with what we can control. There are a lot of things we can change, and we have more power than we may realize.
I hope these pages will help those looking for better health and well being.
Lets enjoy this very day. Lets look for the good and the joy thru our day. It’s there. It’s actually everywhere. We just need to “see” it. Then.. let’s put one foot in front of the other and live this day.
Let’s do the best we can to be healthy and happy TODAY.
I look forward to having you visit here often!
