Perhaps it sounds "crunchy" but, I truly believe that a healthy life is all about balance.
I am slowly regaining mine or, maybe I actually was never truly in balance before?
Cancer survivors often talk about a "new normal" post-treatment. For me, I am working on balance in my body, mind and spirit; a holistic approach. This is my "new normal"; finding happy.
Currently I am pursuing my studies as a Holistic Nutrition Practitioner/Consultant. I am more aware now of my actions and their effects on myself and the people and world around me. I am more aware of how my body runs as a complex machine and how to fuel it for peak performance on physical, cognitive an emotional levels. I love learning about the neurological and physiological relationships that exist in our bodies and how nutrition impacts and supports these interactions and functions. It is like magic and science all rolled up in one.
And it really does prove; you can not pour from an empty cup.
