The way we live is out of tune with nature. Everything is artificial, fluorescent lights, recirculated air, and genetically modified foods. What happened to the sun, a fresh breeze and food made the old fashioned way. Is anything real these days? Does anybody care? Our ancestors used up physical energy harvesting foods and hunting, they earned every calorie they took in. Nothing was handed to them on a plate and everything was fresh. They ate real, organic, whole foods, exercised constantly and spent most of their time outdoors.
Our joy, and perhaps even our curse, as human beings often come from our ability to chose the way we will view and interpret the world. People who are able to grow a more sunny outlook on things are happier and have less stress than those who tend to focus on their problems. It seems like a no-brainer - always think about the best parts of every situation. Still, many of us find ourselves stuck on the negatives.

I’m feeling great despite the knowledge that a detox flu may be just around the corner. #FoodBlog #Ketogenic #Keto #Diet #Nutrition
Life is more enjoyable when you aren't preoccupied with being somewhere else (of in my case somewhen). Living in the future causes anxiety and stops you from seeing the joys right in front of you. I know this now but it took thirty years to figure this out.
These rituals and routines are comforting and they keep me calm, clear headed, and productive. I give myself enough time to work mindfulness into my morning and it becomes a part of everything I do. Starting my day off right, with a good mental foundation.
When you write your tale put something worthwhile into your publication. Goodness knows there's enough garbage in the world these days.
People sometimes question taking a vow to undertake an impossible task. Someone once made a comment that I was "setting myself up for failure" by holding an impossible goal. This statement misses the point completely.
It is important to be cautious with who you let into your life because the people you spend time with tend to rub off on you. Negative people will suck the life out of you and positive people will help you succeed.
