Regardless of orientation, most everyone agrees that we live by an internal compass that guides our behavior with feelings of good and bad, knowledge of right and wrong. We flourish when we live in alignment with our innate value system.
Movement benefits … everything – your brain, your poops, your immune system, your blood sugar management, even your moods. Lack of movement promotes stress. Lack of movement promotes bad health – weight gain, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, dementia, autoimmune disease, arthritis.
All calories aren’t the same – calories from chips or Twinkies aren’t the same as calories from avocado or salmon. The nutrient quality of calories matter … hugely. We recommend building a critical skill set: the ability to gain an understanding of the caloric value of your typical foods.
On a personal level you get to choose your attitude. Your attitude is a set of beliefs that are developed over time. Your attitude reflects your chosen belief system and dictates your behaviors and feelings. If our attitude reflects the belief that every circumstance provides an opportunity for growth, we can maintain a state of gratitude.
