Life-giving Nutrients

September 18th, 2011 by judytalks

What nourishes you? What keeps you healthy, helps you to grow, and piques your sense of satisfaction?

Food for mind, body, and spirit are different in kind but have similar components. What you take in should nourish you, do you no harm, leave you feeling well, and satisfy your hunger.

We have some control over what we feed our bodies. We can make choices from an abundance of foods, some of which will not meet the criteria mentioned. But what about nourishing your mind and spirit?

There’s a saying, “Do you eat to live or live to eat?” Hopefully, you do both. There’s health and joy in that.

I take great care to eat only foods that are good for me. Staying well is mandatory. But lately I’ve given thought to what I allow to seep into my mind and spirit. Junk food abounds. Empty calories, toxic ideas, corrosive opinions, and just plain “spoiled food” surrounds us day and night. Time to take control over what I feed myself.

It’s hard to stop eating potato chips when you crave salt. It’s also hard to stop watching junk TV when you want to relax. It’s difficult to walk away from conversations that give you a belly ache instead of inspiration. Reading, always a great pleasure for me, should also meet your standards for quality. When you realize you’re always hungry for intellectual stimulation or a soothing of the soul, it’s probably time for a change.

I’m composing a “diet” especially designed to nourish my mind and spirit as carefully as I choose foods for my body. My hunger for health and well-being in all aspects of life is not being fed. Time to act. I can make better choices. No more junk food. Period!

Be well,

Judy
