We all know exercise is important in creating a healthy lifestyle, but did you know that exercise, in combination with a diet rich in whole plant-based foods, is an important component in the healing process?
Our modern way of life tends to breed stagnation. We spend hours everyday hunched over our computers and iPhones or lounging in front of the television. After a long day at work, the mental exhaustion and stress can make it hard to get motivated to go the gym. We’ve all heard about the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle. Our bodies were built for moving.
What if your doctor offered you a pill to take twice a day that has no negative side effects and is proven to:
- slow down your aging process
- improve your brain function and memory
- increase your productivity and creativity
- decrease stress
- reduce anxiety
- improve your immune system
- decrease inflammation
- reduce pain
- boost your happiness
- leave you with a sense of calmness and peace
How much would you be willing to pay for this magic pill?
Well the good news is that the pill is free! But it is not a pill to swallow, it is called meditation. In exchange for paying money and going to the pharmacy for refills, you commit to taking 15 to 20 minutes each morning and evening for some quiet time for yourself. This small investment in your time is well worth the effort.
