There is a lesson, a powerful lesson that I am learning as each year and birthday passes, a lesson that we all know, but I think take for granted. The Lesson? That we can have all the money in the world, all the love in the world, everything we want in the world in fact – but if we don’t have our health, we have nothing. No-thing. I had a list a mile long of To Do’s last week, but was struck down with one of the worst flu’s – + chest infection & sinusitis – I’ve had in years which put me out of action for a solid week. In Anna time, that means light years. There is nothing like a bout of sickness however to slap a fresh perspective across your face which is exactly what has happened with me. I consider myself relatively healthy. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, exercise more than 4 times a week, drink 4L+ of water a day, and get to yoga once a week, so how can I and how did I get so sick? I believe because I am not valuing mind, body and spirit as a whole. Unfortunately, I don’t always listen to my body. It’s great to look after yourself on the surface, but what’s going on in your mind and internally is just as important to be taking extra good care of. It’s a whole package. I have decided I need to start taking even better care of myself, actually listening to what my body is trying to tell me. Health & Vitality is my number one value, because without that, I have nothing else, I can’t be who I want to be or do what I want to do. With that in mind, I thought the week ahead I would focus on all things for the mind, body & spirit – share some healthy recipes I’ve started using, put up some amazing inspirational quotes for the mind, look at the regrets of the dying (so we can learn from those who have been there before us) and share some great tips for taking care of your body. So here’s to a week of health, & revitalising our bodies, minds and spirits.
