YOU CAN CREATE A HEALTHY BUBBLE.
My mentor, Dr. Wayne Scott Andersen, likes to say that the environment around you, determines your health. He calls this your health bubble.
My health bubble growing up was surrounded with good old southern traditions and foods. Every family and friend gathering was focused around food and that food wasn't always the best for me nutritionally. I can say that it wasn't a "health bubble" that I was exposed to or creating, but a "sick bubble" that set me up for decades of poor health choices.
Mom was a great cook! I grew up cooking and experimenting in the kitchen. I grew up loving food. We were taught that you had to have a bread, salad, vegetable, fruit, meat and lastly a desert at every meal! Add friends and family to the mix, and you had the perfect environment to overindulge. Most of us in school were taught the "4 basic food groups," which in itself is bogus to healthy living on the portion sizes alone.
Not only do we have a tendency to revert back to the ways that we were raised and the concepts around foods and traditions, the everyday here and now has a dramatic impact on our health choices.
My husband is a big part of my health bubble. I have learned by following Dr. A's principles how my husband and I can work towards creating our health goals and be accountable for the choices that we make. Hopefully, I am an inspiration to my friends and family to do the same with their health bubbles! Are we perfect? No, but we can be persistent together.
I'm leaving you with two good articles that will hopefully peak your desire to be more mindful about this health bubble and how to arrange life around your health.
In closing, I currently use Dr. A's principles to help my clients on their journeys towards health.
I do use Optavia as a choice, but this is NOT the only solution that I have in my basket to help a person. To decide, you and I team together and formulate a plan that is best for you.
The book of the month is, The Power of a Parent's blessing, by Craig Hill.
P.S. I was made aware that some of the email addresses that I received at the women's business meeting were not for emailing of newsletters.
Although I don't see this as a newsletter, the sentiment might be the same. If any person reading this does not want to receive my future blogs, please feel free to unsubscribe.
Have a great rest of the month! Onward into Fall we go! Yea! I LOVE FALL!
