People don’t usually use logic with their choices. As previously mentioned, people tend to look at trends and go with the flow. Humans tend to go with the less painful and troublesome option. The new fad that people are jumping on is the health revolution that is escalating all around us. I’m seeing more and more magazines for health and wellness. Other wellness company advocates whom I speak with aren’t concerned about their bottom line as much as they care about helping others. More movies and documentaries are coming out about health. Vegetarianism and veganism are becoming more widely spread and less “weird” and “tree hugger.” (No offense, as I myself am a hippie). Health is talked about more and it makes me very excited. Yet, people who haven’t got in on this beautiful transformational journey don’t understand it. They don’t know that living a healthy lifestyle can bring about healed bodies and minds. Intentional living is bringing about less disease, remissions, and even cures.
I had a conversation with my doctor this last week about different medical models. One isn’t taught the model of the other. And if one isn’t working for you, it’s completely okay to find a model that will and give you the answers that you need. Some people will go holistically and more naturally. Others will seek a more conventional route. And if you experience disease and need relief, then go find one that will help. Go find multiple and find something that makes the most sense to you. I promise you that going and finding a specialist (i.e.: endocrinologist, rheumatologist, etc.) isn’t always the answer, either. I often hear that from time to time. People ask me all the time, ‘wouldn’t going to a specialist be the best thing for me?’ The answer is definitely not always! They can help with different medications, have a better understanding with what is going on with your body, and what you are experiencing in symptoms. But what they can’t do is have the correct answers for you and what you believe is right.
But in the meantime, you can trust your friends and loved ones who are trying to prevent you from getting ill in the first place. Even if it doesn’t make sense to you, why wouldn’t you trust someone on something, when you trust them for other things? I’m loving being able to look around me and see how others are getting healthy. It does something to my heart that I can’t quite explain. And whether you know me or not, I know there is someone in your circle who has been trying to tell you these things and you probably haven’t been listening. Can you pinpoint why? Have you seen someone looking amazing and doing great things in their life? Would you like a part of that? Then just listen to what they’re saying. Why would you dismiss someone who wants something great for you?
Here are seven things that people have been talking about lately:
1. Eating Right: Those fruits and veggies tho
2. Building your knowledge: reading more and more intellectual wellness
3. Do self-care: when was the last time you took a bath?
4. Tap into your spirituality: I feel most at one with the universe and my God when I’m in nature. Like full out forest or mountains. When was the last time you felt at peace?
5. Green living: Be sure to live a greener life with fewer chemicals for cleaning and making this Earth more sustainable
6. Your job: Do you care about what you do for a living? Does it make you feel passionate? Do you remember why you started doing what you do now?
7. Building relationships: When was the last time you made a friend? When was the last time you hung out with your husband/wife? When was the last time you cared to listen to someone who loves you?
And yes, it really is that simple! Join in on this fad! If you can be around people who are unfortunately eating tide pods and other unfortunate things that are going on in this world today, why wouldn’t you listen to something that is actually going to do you some good?
