Taking care of yourself is a three-fold approach that helps to nature and nourish the mind, body, and spirit within the natural course of every day.
Take a break from the bad news, and gossip. It’s difficult to find spiritual sustenance and renewal in a World full of negative messages and tension. Commit to turning off the tv, radio, phone and internet one day per week. The weeklong bombardment of negativity from virtually every media outlet can wreak havoc on your mind, body and spirit. Add 10-20 minutes of daily meditation. Hundreds of scientific studies have shown meditation can aid in a plethora of mental, physical, and emotional ills, including coronary problems, cancer, and depression.
What you put into your body will ultimately be the fuel that either pushes you onward and upward or pulls you downward and backwards. Think before you eat. Ask yourself this question before putting foods or liquids in your body, is what I’m about to ingest going to benefit my body, mind and spirit? How can I care for myself in this moment? Eat and drink for the mind and body!
Seek insight from many sources. Through the ages, people have turned to spiritual traditions to search for wisdom about life’s meaning and purpose. Today’s seekers mine ancient wisdom traditions, science, meditation, and many other avenues. Instead of only sticking to one belief system, explore a variety of sources for guidance.
