There are a lot of things that can play into a cycle of negative thinking and mean self-talk. (I use the word ‘mean’ on purpose. Would you talk to your friends the way you talk to yourself?) No one knows why mental illness, including depression, is on the rise exponentially, but it is. A friend was telling me not too long ago that out of a small group of a dozen friends or less, only two were not on antidepressants.
Feeling blue? You’re not alone. But it doesn’t have to stay that way for you!
Good nutrition is not the only answer to this problem, but it is a big part. You need to eat like you love you. Not only will good nutrition help to balance the chemistry of your cells (and it does help!), but it empowers you. Nothing is as unnerving/depressing as feeling like you are out of control. Nothing is as uplifting as feeling like you are achieving a goal you have set out to accomplish.
The power of positive energy is a healing force. Laughter and hope have both been described as medicine for the soul!
Today’s assignment is easy:
Eat when you’re hungry, and each time you do, ask yourself this question: “Does this food say I love you?”
Have a great day, Team!
