We are always working, working, working. We multi-task, trying to be more productive in our jobs, life and relationships. We have ridiculous commutes each day, spending hours in bumper to bumper traffic or on public transportation. We are stressed, over-weight, sleep-deprived and mal-nourished.
Wow, how did all this happen to us? What did we do to deserve such a fate?! Somewhere along our life path, we choose to ignore the obvious and go with the crowd. We no long play, sleep well, exercise, laugh at truly funny things with friends and family. We eat foods that have no nutritional value, but are filled with chemicals that our bodies cannot use, fat and we don’t need and way too much sodium.
But we can make changes that will make our lives healthier, happier, filled with joy, peaceful and calm. However, being human, we don’t take well to drastic change, so we are going to have to ease into this desired state of health and happiness. Small daily changes. Making changes in our habits takes time. All of the above are habits we have acquired along the way of our lives. And we can change those habits.
I use alfalfa to keep from having sinus problems. Each day, during the course of my day, I consume around 10 Alfalfa Complex tablets (aspirin size tablets). When I tell others about the relief from prescription anti-histamines , prescription decongestants and mega-doses of anti-biotics along with an inhaler, I am met with a groan and something like this: “You take 10 pills a day! I could not do that!”
Really? You can’t take 10 little tablets a day to keep from having a sinus infection? Then I ask, “Do you eat M&M’s?” They will say “Yes, of course.” Then I will ask if they eat only one or 2 at a time or a handful? ” Handfuls of course!” Amazing what habits we have. We eat handfuls of candy that is really not too good for us, but shy away from eating the 10 Alfalfa Complex tablets that are about the same size as the candy and do so much for our health and quality of daily life.
Habits are the things that keep us from health, wealth, happiness and long life. Habits can be changed, but we must make a conscience effort to make those changes. Choose one thing to change at a time. Reward yourself when you have make the change a new habit. Making a change in habit will take time, so don’t expect an overnight success. Success is worth the wait!
Be Good to Yourself, Change Your Habits!
Stay Well, Elise
