Yesterday while waiting at the car service station I noticed this lovely lady
gobble down an extra big so called healthy burger from a joint whose name
I will omit right now. Later she had a tiny piece of doughnut. Probably
"Portion Control" was on her mind To be honest that was somewhat like
me sometime ago. Do take a sneak peek at your grocery cart next time you
go shopping. How much of the stuff in there is processed even if it is
"gluten free"? How much of it is from the produce section? What items are you
carrying for your convenience which your grandma or rather great grandma
won't recognize? Coming back to my introductory sentence if planning and
presenting perfect plate for self or family is on your mind like most health
conscious people. Are you standing in the grocery store aisle confused?
My dear reader it is time for us to introduce ourselves to the most amazing
friend we have all neglected for the longest time and are paying the price for it.
Without further ado I would like to introduce you to your own body.
God gifted beautiful, magnificent machine which knows how to heal and repair
itself by itself. It is always calling us for attention by painting a walking, talking,
feeling picture for us to pay attention to. But we ignore it's calling, we look
around for help from the experts, we mask every day the clues it is presenting
us with drugs and entertainment of sorts it doesn't appreciate. So my dear
readers please listen to your body and pledge to pay attention. Pay attention
when you pick something from the store, pay attention on how you cook or
don't cook whatever you are putting behind those gorgeous grinding instruments
in your mouth that god has provided you, pay attention on how you feel after
you have gobbled those delicious doughnuts or after you patiently chewed those
beautiful veggies that god has given us on this classy one of its kind known to
us humans "The Planet Earth". Ok I know for those of us who don't believe in
"God" for you guys by referring to this term "God" I am talking about who ever
you think created this world. It could be your "Jesus", "Buddha", "Allah", "Ram",
"Guru" or some "Electron" "Protons", "Atoms", "Force", "Cell" etc etc....I am sure
you believe in some power that created us humans alike from inside ....the organs
and other great stuff that we all carry. Also pay attention to all the animals and
birds in your yard or in the wild. They are mostly free of any chronic diseases
that the human race is facing today in epidemic proportions. They listen to their
best friend their body not the experts in the magazines or clinics. Only once after
you have tried making peace with your best friend and she is not responding
because she is feeling abused for a long time then you need to ask for outside
help and that to from a counsellor not a dictator.
Here is a "BSW" tip for you meanwhile:
Remember If you cup both your hands together, that's the approx size of
your stomach. Also remember all of us need some personal space
sometimes to function properly the other times. Similarly our dear stomach
needs a little empty space to function fine. So please don't stuff it all the
way or else it will revolt sooner or later in one part of your body or the other.
