Healthy living involves being a good steward ~ of your body, mind, and your living environments.
Just as your physical body is the vehicle for your spirit to express itself, your home is your vehicle for your body to rest, rejuvenate, and recuperate from your daily life. Your will also want to clear the clutter (negative chatter) in your mind if you want to maintain a positive mindset, and use your imagination to help manifest (versus sabotage) your desired outcomes.
When you create a home sanctuary, that is welcoming, and efficiently organized, it can help you maintain healthy lifestyle habits.
Having a healthy physical body and 'home-body' will help you feel better, safer, and more inspired to realize your dreams.
The following tips can help you create a healthier, more content and flourishing life. Some suggestions support our physical health, some are for are inner world, and a few are for managing our living environment.
Actually, there are many people these days, especially among the younger generations who are living very active, healthy lives. We see them making great contributions through their resourcefulness and ingenuity.
Some have chosen to avoid being straddled by debt and have built or acquired less resource consumptive alternative or tiny homes off the grid, while others have been able to become more self-reliant through economically viable online businesses, or other cottage businesses helping them regain sovereignty in their lives.
If you stop and think about it, healthy living is in direct conflict with the economic interests that stand to gain by us being un-healthy, and totally reliant on government hand outs, big corporations, consumerism, prescription drugs, and living on the grid.
For example, most people in modern times are very confused about which foods are the healthiest foods to eat. You would think we would have this figured out by now! However, traditional populations from around the world all instinctively knew what and how to eat to support nutrition at all stages of development ~ whether as a child, to support fertility for both men and women, for healthy reproduction and lactation, and for immunity from disease.
Even as recently as 100 years ago, our great ancestors consumed a simple diet centered around animal foods. They either raised the animals, or obtained them from someone else in their community. Their rates of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease were much lower.
In those days, there were locally produced goods, locally owned mom and pop stores, little to no 'commute' to 'work' and multiple generations tended to live together in one household.
Since the Industrial Revolution, refined foods and big, corporate owned super stores have replaced the mom and pop, local neighborhood markets.
The aisles of these stores are filled with refined and processed foods.
Since the introduction of these nutrient-deficient foods ~ that most associate with the 'Western diet' ~ our physical and mental health have suffered.
Corporations looking to expand profits have thrust these refined empty calorie products onto the global marketplace, which has led to world-wide spread of disease among all populations consuming their nutrient-poor foods. Many once healthy indigenous populations are under threat, or are suffering greatly from poor health and disease.
Weston A. Price, DDS, observed that the healthiest and strongest Native populations that he studied from all around the world consumed diets that centered around land and sea animals and plants.
The longest lived populations also have in common a built-in social network from living among their own tribe, a greater sense of belonging and purpose, spiritual practices, more physically active lifestyles, more time spent outdoors, and more rural coastal, mountainous, or inland living environments.
