Why sound so wanky welfare? Because it is full of assholes.
I wish I could rise above it, take a sip of a latte without milk turmeric and pretend to be friends with everyone on welfare, but I’m not. Welfare is a wonderful thing. It is the pursuit of health and happiness and there’s nothing wrong with that. Therefore, it hurts to see the wellness industry is kidnapped by young damaged they are wearing their eating disorders with brownies beet and milk activated almonds (btw activated almond milk is great, if you can get you you must drink it).
There is no middle ground, which is the safer, healthier and happier place to be – it’s fun here in the middle. It’s the people on the edges who are angry and bored. Not everyone will be having their SuperGreens blessed by the monks, but that does not mean you have to go to the other extreme of eating a sandwich cigarette for breakfast.
The average is that place where you just live your life and be kind to yourself, do not buy into fads, trends or anything stupid garbage that is well marketed. It is to find foods that make you feel good and know very well and the establishment of rituals and habits that make you feel better (I know that when I say something like the ritual I am a strong risk of sounding like an asshole, but it is good practice, so stay with me on this). Anyone wondering what is a ritual? Not sacrificing a goat, which is a simple as do two minutes of deep breathing every night and have a think about what you are grateful for his life and that’s a nice little ‘ritual’- see, none of that wanky.
to get people write me they have only cut meat and fish have eaten for years and then have gone with toxic levels of mercury. One of my clients started their day religiously with hot water and freshly squeezed lemon for 18 months and then she scolded me your dentist to damage your teeth. Some have become anemic became vegan because everything in an attempt to be healthy. It is so easy to become disillusioned, confused and sad that’s why I want to remind you to find balance.
The essential truth of being never changes. Just tune into your body and find out what works for you. It does not have to be too complicated, in fact, the simplest is the best. For example, instead of feeling like you have to register for a course of mindfulness to become a better human being, take a moment to focus on your breathing for a few minutes at the beginning of your day. Biochemical change and feel better for it.
There are wankers on both sides of the fence: there are people who are quite transparent false and annoying to be “as” well and then on the other side there are people who delight in being unhealthy. Instead of being annoyed with it starts the day with oatmeal and activated tips cocoa, find their own version that works for you. While you are respecting your body and is making decisions based on being kind to yourself, you will improve your overall well-being.
Before the 22-year-old bloggers being shed their green juices all over your Macs, all I will say is: please, tell the truth, please have integrity, please be authentic.
