Most of us know how to make basic healthy choices.
We have them ingrained in us. Choose fruit over candy, eat more vegetables, exercise, don’t smoke, limit alcohol, and watch your intake of fried, fatty foods. Those are the basics. And even if you aren’t health conscious you probably know the basics from television, magazines and hearing others talk about what they should or shouldn’t do. The information is there but the challenge is living it. Actually executing the choice of health is a greater task, especially when we are stressed and going through difficult times. Here is where our commitment to training our mind to be the servant comes in.
Again, making healthy choices is a practice that your rebellious mind will wrestle loudly with and it’s up to you to take control. Each time you over ride your habitual mind and grab the apple instead of the cupcake, a deep breath instead of an outburst you are actually retraining your mind, in time your body and your habitual thinking will respond.
Making healthy choices can have many physical, psychological and emotional obstacles to bear, addiction being one. Taking the steps and making the effort to making healthy choices might shine the light on addictions for some of us, giving us the opportunity to make us life changing choices that can take us very intense paths of awakening.
Committing to choose for your own greater good and development can guide you to deeper paths of growth and self-discovery. Approach courageously with an open mind and you can succeed.
