What the body needs most

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

In the last couple of decades there’s been more and more emphasis on a good diet and exercise as being crucial to one’s health. But certain foods seem to go in and out of fashion. Fad diets help people lose weight but aren’t always considered healthy. Individual needs can vary so much that it’s not always easy to define what constitutes proper diet and exercise.

What I’ve found most helpful in thinking through these issues is that our thoughts about our bodies and our health are actually more influential than anything else. This isn’t commonly accepted knowledge, but I’ve proved it over and over again in my life and I know many others have, too.

We'd love to hear from you!
