Food for Thought - The Easy Way to Be Healthier in 2012

By Karla Jones Seidita, Home Economist

You already know the basics: eat right, exercise, get enough rest.
Your mother taught you that.

That should be enough but sometimes it isn't.

An apple a day keeps the
doctor away.....
Your mother told you so....
Sometimes no matter what you do, you get sick.

The health information we receive is constantly changing (eat this, don't eat that... do this, don't do that) and ALWAYS seems to contradict itself.

It's hard to know what to do and what to eat to stay healthy.

Simply put, being healthy means having your body, mind and soul in balance.  That's a tall order but that's all it really takes!

By our very nature, we are continually in flux. We're NEVER in perfect balance.

The ebb and flow of our external and internal tides effects our health moment by moment.

When you are in balance, your health is optimal.
When you are out of balance, you get sick.

Can you ever have continually perfect health?
Probably not.

Can you have better health?

Strive for a balance between body, mind and soul by first following your mother's teachings then expand your knowledge.  Put into practice those things that add value to your life.

Feed your body, mind and soul with the very best and hunger for more.  That's all it takes to be healthy!

Now go have an apple and think good thoughts.
You mother will be happy and you'll feel great!!
