The Number 1 Health Question to Ask Yourself Today!
I once knew a set of twins.
They lived their lives growing up feeling constantly bloated.
Because they both experienced the same issue they assumed it was normal.
They thought, "Everyone must feel as we do!"
It wasn't until they discussed their bloating with their roommates at university that they learned that their issues were not the norm.
They visited a clinician and found out they had Celiac!
They eliminated gluten, their tummies flattened and their bowels calmed.
Most people go through their lives accepting the way they feel as normal.
They assume everyone else feels that way or forget what it felt like to feel truly healthy.
What symptoms have you normalized?
Fatigue, sadness, irritability, anxiety, bloating, weight gain, unintentional weight loss, aches and pains, allergies, hair loss, insomnia, cravings, nausea, constipation, diarrhea.
You may have had these issues for so long that you have forgotten what it feels like not to have them!
Or, you've given up on finding a solution and have accepted your fate.
Where to start then?
Ask yourself this most important question:
"When was the last time I felt truly healthy?"
Was it before you began to experience bullying in grade school?
Was it when you were playing team sports in high school?
Was if before your parent's divorce?
Was it before you gave birth to your first child?
You may find you last felt truly healthy just days ago or many many years ago in your early childhood.
But, for most of us, there was a time!
Usually, your symptoms are the result of an unhealthy habit. You formed a habit that originally helped you cope or provided brief pleasure, but over time started doing more harm than good.
Perhaps slowly at first - then all of the sudden!
The fluffy white sandwich bread that tastes good and is easy to throw together for lunch is causing you bloating and brain fog.
The avoidance of physical activity that happened after that negative experience in gym class, plus you were never gifted at sports anyway.
The habit of hitting snooze 5 times to cuddle into your warm bed a bit longer instead of getting up to make a healthy breakfast and do a morning yoga routine to nourish your mind and body for the day.
The negative words playing through your head as you walk by the mirror.
Examine your Timeline
Bring yourself back to when you felt truly healthy. What were was your life like then? What were your habits? Then, what changed?
How do you feel now? What are your habits today?
What do you imagine your future will be like if you don't make some changes? What do you want your future to be like? What steps do you have to take to get there?
