This year I vow to not focus diet.
To not focus on losing weight.
Or cutting things out of or off of my plate.
Junk food has never been my weakness.
I love fresh, handmade pasta.
Thankfully, it’s hard to get.
And, I don’t make it at home.
I crave sugary things,
Especially around my cycle each month.
My diet is far from pristine.
I am, however, aware of what I eat.
This year, in my consciousness cleanse,
I focus more energy & thought
To cleansing my mind.
What am I watching, reading, listening to or thinking about
That is like junk food to my mind?
The direction of the blog this year
Revolves around the mind/body connection.
Mind/body is one.
Caring for my body has become a habit.
I could do more.
But my habits related to my body
(Exercise, food, sleep)
Are all pretty firmly set.
They don’t need massive attention,
Or, even to be replaced.
The non-food or drink related things
That I choose to take in…
That’s another matter.
Which brings me to the crux of the consciousness cleanse –
Health can’t be found in the body alone.
The mind and body must live in the same zone.
To improve my health,
I need to improve my quality of mind.
To do that,
I need to start paying attention
To everything I ingest.
Is this feeding me nutrients?
Or, causing more damage than good?
Am I ingesting positivity? Love? And, good?
Or, am I ingesting negativity? Fear? Stress?
The answer will directly affect the state of my health.
I like the idea of throwing myself into things.
Unfortunately, that approach rarely works out.
As in this case,
Moving forward purposely will take a bit of finesse.
First, I need to bring awareness to
The choices I make –
And, their energetic effects.
I need to remind myself –
Each choice matters.
Each choice creates an effect.
To improve my well-being
I need to start becoming conscious
Of how my actions affect my mind, body & soul.
If the answer is “negatively”
Or, even “not positively”…
Then, it must go.
