What you put into your body (food & drink), what your inner monologue is, and what your stress management techniques are determine your well-being. You can prevent many forms of sickness and disease if you change the negative parts of your routine and just commit to:
1) Creating a healthy microbiome through good nutrition and exercise, which means cutting down on alcohol, caffeine, and processed/packaged foods.
2) Loving yourself and creating an inner monologue that lifts you up
3) Making your common stresses manageable and avoiding unnecessary stress.
I have tried to narrow the focus of my blog to sharing healthy, homemade, whole food, paleo recipes, but the other aspects of prevention and optimal health are so intertwined with diet and nutrition that I feel compelled to emphasize the importance of nurturing your spirit in tandem with nurturing your gut!
If you are in a negative spiral, remember that “Your thoughts are not facts and your past is not your potential” – Kris Carr
the 5 pillars of prevention
- What you’re eating
- What you’re drinking
- What you’re thinking
- How you’re resting
- How you’re renewing
I began my health journey with a lot of help from Kris Carr’s Crazy Sexy You and Crazy Sexy Diet. I recommend her books and her current FREE online Wellness program!
