Giving, sharing and helping others make us happy. Period. What are your favourite ways to give of your ability and fortune?
How would our world be different if we acknowledge the divinity within each of us and that of our neighbour? When we are able to transcend man-made religious borders and our own limited views of ‘my way or the highway’ when it comes to religion, we may experience connectedness and compassion like never before.
We are social creatures who need connectedness. Relating genuinely to others reveal so much about ourselves in this world. Who are you close to and do these people really know you?
Do you invest in family or take yours for granted? The power of knowing that there are people who have your back (whether they are connected to you biologically or not) is priceless! Time to be thankful…
It’s easy to say ‘do what you love, or love what you do’, right? Think about how much of your life’s energy is spent on what you are doing right now, and on your deathbed, will this be a source of pride or regret?
We are not only what we eat…we are also how we eat? Do you crave for and savour the natural flavours of real food in every bite…?
Food is fuel, and food is medicine. So to then have a rather rude awakening that we exist in a nutrient-deficient world today is not just sad, it’s alarming. Making time to understand our food system and navigating a way through it to get to valuable nutrients is a must!
Did you know we are more ‘bacterial’ than human? Our body houses some 100 trillion micro-organisms with minds of their own! (Not joking…) So key to building great health is to do the right thing by our gut. Sally discusses this in more detail in her book.
Ahh…by the time we feel thirst, we are already dehydrated…how much is enough, and what counts as proper hydration and what should we drink. Water by any other name is just as good?
The human body is designed to move and move often! It is most certainly not prepared for today’s sedentary lifestyles where we are mostly desk and device-bound. Research shows that even exercising for 30 minutes and then sitting for the rest of the day does not help to ensure better health…find out more about how to easily be more active every day in Chapter 7!
