Why do you eat the food you eat every day? What role does food play in your life? Does the food you eat serve you? Or is the food you eat a substitution for something else missing or lacking in your life? Does the food you eat nourish your body? Is food your friend, enemy or frenemy? These are very important questions to ask yourself. Do you know your real answers?
We previously discussed 10 Benefits of Exercising. Today this email will add to the equation we are building for a healthy body and life. The primary purpose of food is to nourish your body. Nourishment provides the energy and sustenance to function in everyday life.
Just like a car, your body is your vehicle. The better you take care of both the faster and further they can take you. What you put into both and the maintenance you provide will determine the quality of life you experience.

Change is not something you do, it is who you are. You are never not changing. Cells are splitting and dividing, your heart is beating, you are aware of more information than 10 minutes ago. In fact, in every moment, in every second, you are brand new, never the same person physically, mentally, emotionally or spiritually.. You’ve never done the same thing twice.
Your Ego will make you believe you have a repetitive nature. You cannot nor have you ever done the same (even seemingly repetitive tasks) twice. So then how can you compare the new you to an older less effective version of yourself. Why then, when it comes to change you make excuses out of fear of making the wrong choice or doing it the wrong way? Why keep yourself frozen in time and place merely existing when a wonderful and adventurous life if yours for the making?
When you resist change, you are giving away your personal power by accepting a limited version of your true self. By being drawn to this article, you are...
Putting one foot in front of the other seems like an easy concept without much thought involved. After we learn to walk as a toddler, we usually don’t give walking or balance much thought. Balance is a crucial part of life. We usually don’t know it’s not working until it is challenged or gone.
