Your body, your health, your responsibility.
I saw an article this morning which I shared in which I said something similar to today’s SSA. It’s been hanging around with me, and made me think back to when I was newly divorced (16 years ago end of this month!), and my current chiropractor offered me a pamphlet about the foods we eat. I told her I wanted to lose weight and get back into health, as I had let it go during the drama with my ex-husband for those years.
The one thing that always strikes me about that pamphlet, is that it talked about an orange “today” versus an orange of yesterday. And, by that, an orange of “yesterday” was grown organically, with organic means. Today most foods are grown non-organically. The pamphlet mentioned the “yesterday” orange had more Vitamin C, which I believe was 50 mg (sorry, this was 15 years ago! LOL!). Anyway, I do recall it stating “today’s” orange had 5 mg. Okay, folks, that is 10 times less. I started l purchasing more organic foods back then. So, when I hear that organic is so expensive, I think to myself…well, one orange may be 10 or 15 cents more per pound, but you only have to eat one to get a good dose of Vitamin C. How many non-organic ones would you have to eat? Isn’t that more way expensive, as you have to eat 10 of them? And, if you aren’t eating 10 of them, those Vitamin C supplements aren’t always the best type of C, and those that are, can be more expensive than organic oranges.
Anyway, your body and your health are your responsibility. You are free to chose whichever orange you wish to consume. But, use conscious and mindful choices. Choose to consume what is best for you and what makes you feel healthy. One time someone said to me “Well, I’d rather have fun” in regards to eating and drinking whatever he wanted. I said “Well, don’t you want to feel healthy while doing it?”
Consider that orange as a symbol of anything you choose to “Consume”. Choose responsibly for your entire body, which includes your mental health, your emotional health and yours spiritual health. Choose responsibly what you wish to consume in books, videos/movies and in actions. Remember, everything is energy. To feel good (energy), we need to consume appropriately. Consider reading inspirational books, or ones that talk to healthier eating. Watch educational items versus just the news every day. Go for a walk, do yoga, meditate, and more!
Consume responsibly for your total well-being. It’s your choice!
