INTERNAL HEALTH = EXTERNAL SHINE
Time for “CHANGE”
When Healthy INTERNALLY, We Benefit EXTERNALLY!
Changers, for me, have meant adding to or removing from, to increase health, balance, meaning, education and joy in my life, professionally and personally. Every year I contemplate two “changers” I find if two are identified, and only one is achieved, we’re still ahead. I invite you to try this as you start a new year. It is a positive gift to self. The change/s could be internal or external with the goal being to commit to a change that improves your life somehow.
One year a “changer” for me was to get back to reading. I used to read a dozen books a year and at some point in conversation with a friend, realized I had not read a book in almost 3 years. I was appauled and thought how could this be …..life! Within two weeks, I started a book club to jump start me, and made myself “club secretary” (to be accountable to stick with it). I read 11 books that year and am still enjoying being back to reading, 12 years later; even though in year 2 the book club discontinued. We must be committed to our goals.
Here’s a good night stand wind down …
In need of a good book with a good story to redirect the mind as you power down for the night? This is a GOOD one. Some nights, for me, present a challenge to feel tired and fall asleep. This historical 600ish page novel, set in 14th Century offers drama, politics, romance and more. Even in the denser areas of this book, each night I could not wait to read and did not want to stop. It’s long, involved, emotional and takes you away. This is why I enjoyed it. I totally escaped my normally busy mind, every single night (always delivered a good wind down and deep sleep). Thoroughly enjoyed!
One of my 2016 Changers is food based. Dinner parties with more substitive raw/vegan servings has been on my list. I am finally going to know more on the preparation of raw and vegan with the assistance of 118 Degrees and their raw food education classes. I have mastered every kind of SALAD and many basics. I met Sharyn in New York at a holistic conference a few years ago, purchased her book, “The PURE CURE”, and have enjoyed getting to know her, and experience her continual growth, and constant and infectious passion for “health as a lifestyle” which is right in line with the HUmineral mission.
