As you can see it’s been a while since I have written on my blog. Have you ever noticed how quickly life can get away from you before you know it? I think that makes it all the more important to focus on the things that are most important to us. Recently I’ve been reading a wonderful book called “The Anti-Cancer Diet” by David Servan-Schrieber, MD, PhD. One of the wonderful things I love about the book is it’s focus on the importance of living each moment in way that’s healthy in all the ways that are important for having a good life. He makes suggestions for how to prevent cancer and in some cases, slow it’s progress by simply changing lifestyle patterns to focus on a healthy diet, exercise, strong relationships, and spirituality.
I believe those things are all important to live a life that’s in balance. If you are like most of us, it’s a constant challenge in today’s busy world. Most of us have many commitments that may include a spouse or partner, children, a job, church, friends, pets, extended family, and what seems like a thousand other obligations. This is not a bad thing, because all of the differents roles in our lives can bring us meaning. However, sometimes it can be difficult to have some many different parts of yourself. So for today, your mission, if you choose to accept it is to find one small piece of your day for a bit of restorative time for yourself. You’ll be amazed at how much you can give back to others if you take care of your own health.
