Ever thought about your diet away from food! I am not talking about what we eat and drink here people. Are your habits healthy and what sort of living healthy recipe do you follow on a daily basis?
I love the English language we use to communicate with, but do you know who we are in communication with constantly? Now I've said it I'm sure you do. Ourselves of course, have you ever thought about that.
We are not born with any habits healthy or otherwise, but as we grow we acquire some pretty fast, and for some of us those habits can be our downfall
The habit of looking both ways before crossing the street. Now that's a good healthy habit, isn't it. How about the habit of eating everything on our plate before we finish a meal. That's a little more "grey area" isn't it. Bathing on a daily basis - we're all good with that, over eating on a regular basis and seeking comfort in food for many of us has become a bad habit.
But here's the good news folks - just as you learnt and acquired some bad habits so you can unlearn them and acquire new habits healthy and productive. How do you do this; let's move on to the second area I want to discuss.
Diets and living healthy recipes.
Now as I said before, I am not talking about what we eat and drink art this stage (we'll get to that).
How is a cake made ingredients put together from a recipe, right.
Now those ingredients have to be sourced by the cake maker. Away from food still, our diet on a daily basis is what we take in through our senses, especially our ears, eyes and what comes out of our mouth instead of going in, by that I mean our conversations!
Now we choose who we have conversation with, what we read and watch on tv etc. and who and what we listen to.
This is where your "living recipe" reveals it self. Where do you source the ingredients for your day-to-day diet! We have a choice what to watch, what to read, who or what to listen to, who to have meaningful conversations with. And all of this will determine your state of mind and your well being.
One brief dictionary definition for habit is this:
acquired behaviour pattern regularly followed until it has become almost involuntary.
This can be turned to your advantage in the quest for a healthy and full filling life.
A brief lesser considered dictionary definition of diet is this:
…anything that is habitually provided or partaken of: Television has given us a steady diet of game shows and soap operas.
Do not think of diet only in terms of food consumption nor habits only as bad. You can create habits healthy and beneficial and you can cook up some new living healthy recipes for life. Nothing comes to anyone without some work on themselves first, even if that is only some self-knowledge.
