Once these tenets are actively in place in our lives (which is us doing better), we will experience feeling better. And I’m not talking about a day or two of eating right, or a jog one day this week and maybe again two weeks from now, but actively being a healthy participant in your day in, day out, weekly, monthly, on-going routine. Please note that one of the “e”s stands for “expression”. This is a big part of self-care… whether it’s writing, knitting, jogging, painting, etc. It is crucial that we multi-layered humans express our emotions! Productive expression over destructive expression is what I’m talking about.
