It seems to me that aligning body, mind and soul is the ultimate goal of everyone, consciously or not. When out of alignment, our bodies tell us so. We feel lethargic, over-stressed or uninspired.
When in alignment, we feel vibrancy, energy, peace and creativity.
How do we align?
Perhaps we each have our own way. There are so many ways. We can start with our thoughts, or our environment.
Or we can start with the body.
Moving the body.
Feeding the body well.
I promised myself that turning fifty would be the catalyst for becoming the healthiest I’ve ever been. And I’ve got to say, the journey is a blast. I’m seriously having the most fun on the path to good health than I’ve ever had.
Fun is the answer!
For me, that means trying new and healthy recipes, sometimes mimicking those I’ve enjoyed in restaurants. Fun is visiting a new juice bar with my daughters, researching the best blender to purchase, reading some of Jason Vale’s books just for fun and then getting inspired by his near perfect health. https://www.amazon.com/Jason-Vale/e/B0034IZDB6/ref=sr_tc_2_0?qid=1472730018&sr=8-2-ent
Fun is a long walk with my husband or a new playlist for my solo jog.
It’s my favorite yoga class or paddling a kayak under a beautiful blue sky.
It’s a pile of books to read that feeds my mind and distracts me from the sugar I am not ingesting.
It’s having all the energy I need to be as productive as I want to be. I love love love this.
Being productive feels fun.
Fun is writing when the words are flowing, finally, after a bout of writer’s block. What is writer’s block anyhow? I think it’s just like any other energy block; remove the sludge in all its forms and open the channels.
It’s basically free and fun and feels fantastic.
Opening the creative conduit, aligning with the purest energy that is ours for the taking, is a far better buzz than I will ever get from the best margarita ever made. And I do like margaritas.
It’s lighter than stuff.
Sweeter than chocolate.
Good for the body= clarity for the mind=joy for the soul.
