We are responsible for what goes into our body, mind and spirit. Nutritious food is necessary in order to nourish and maintain our life. Our health is dependent on not what we consume so much as what we digest. Does the food you consume end up consuming you? We have heard the saying prevention is better than cure; however, we are more prone to look for cures than working on prevention.
The food we eat with our mouth should give us essential nutrients to help maintain our physical body. If we lack nutrients we become deficient and will experience physical and at times mental/emotional consequences. When we eat foods that are not healthy for us or foods that have very little nutritional value (junk food), over time we can/will develop illnesses. Is your body healthy?
Although what we eat (foods) impact on the mind and emotions, our minds are not nurtured by food we eat. Our mind is nourished and nurtured by what we hear and see. If we continue over time to put junk into our minds, we will experience emotional breakdown which can further lead to physical and spiritual pain. Have you ever given thought to what and who feeds your mind? What governs your thoughts? Is your mind healthy?
Possibly the most neglected part of our being is our spirit. What we don’t realise is that we often starve our spirit and we wonder why we feel so empty. You see if we neglect nourishing our spirit with the food it requires, we will begin to hunger for inner peace, joy and love. When was the last time you fed your spirit? Is your spirit hungry and/or thirty? Is your spirit healthy?
No one but you and I are responsible for the food we consume. Make a choice today to nourish and nurture your body, mind and spirit with foods that will build you up and sustain you for years to come. It is what you consume and digest that will equip you to live and love your life.
