The word holistic gets thrown around a lot... but what does it mean?
The definition of health according to WHO (World Health Organization) -
Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social wellbeing not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
Our environment has made it so our thought of health is skewed, we believe we are healthy as long as we are not sick or injured. Realistically we need to realize that there is a lot more to it than just how much we are eating or exercising….
What foods we are eating
Emotional and mental health
Our minds are very primitive subconsciously, with the primary goals of avoiding pain, seeking pleasure , and conserving energy by looking for the most effortless way to get things done.
If anything is out of balance the brain and body try to compensate to create homeostasis again.
There are many strategies to help you be mindful and start recognizing these behaviors that are usually ingrained habits. Try Journaling, logging food, or even evaluating different triggers that may be causing you to do certain unhealthy or unwanted behaviors.
Remember small steps are still steps in the right direction!
Remember you are totally beautiful inside and out, now let’s reset that mindset!
