Our bodies are what carry us through our lives, but we don’t really take good care of them. Processed foods, no exercise, smoking, drinking, and so many other things we do are really bad for our bodies. We should be more mindful of
Back to the basics
Drink enough water. Make sure you don’t eat too little, or too much. Check your sleeping patterns. Simple things like these have the biggest impact on how we feel and are the first steps we should take when it comes to taking better care of our bodies.

Turn off all technology. Go outside. Meditate. Walk on the grass or over the beach without wearing shoes and connect to the earth.
I don’t think people spend enough time naked. It’s the most natural way for us to be – even if it can be a bit uncomfortable at first (that’s just something that society programmed into you). Practice being naked in small steps.

Remember all the things your body does for you, without you having to think about it…

- you inhale and exhale automatically (until I just mentioned it and you suddenly became conscious of your breathing)
- grows hair
- controls your body temperature
- cleans your blood
- prevents and fights illnesses
- converts food into energy,
And it does so much more!
This was your daily reminder that your body has to carry you through a lifetime of experiences, and it’s the only one you have. So be kind to it.
