|Nourishment for the Mind, Body, and Spirit!
|A unique Free 10-minute a week Newsletter aimed at developing all of You: 🧠 Mind 🧬 Body 🕊️ Spirit!
You heard the old saying, a mind is a terrible thing to waste. Well, it is true. Our Brains are akin to owning a Ferrari, whilst your Mindset is akin to the fuel.
What are you fueling your Ferrari with?
- The brain is incredibly plastic and can continue to grow and change throughout our lives. This neuroplasticity allows us to learn new things, develop new skills, and overcome challenges.
- Our mindset plays a significant role in our success or failure. A growth mindset is the belief that our abilities can be developed through effort and learning. This mindset leads to greater motivation, resilience, and achievement.
- We can cultivate a growth mindset by focusing on our effort and progress rather than our innate abilities. We can also be inspired by the 10k or so promises made in scripture to us as sons and daughters of the Most High.
Relevant Quote: “The mind is not a fixed vessel; it is a garden to be tended.” – Carol Dweck
For some of us who are less young than what we used to be, we should learn to take care of our bodies more. It is actually not that complicated, but sometimes the easiest things can be the most difficult…
- Food is not just fuel for our bodies; it also plays a vital role in our mental and emotional well-being. You likely read my tweet on avoiding Ultra-Processed Foods; if not, I recommend it.
- Eating a balanced diet can improve our mood, reduce stress, and boost our cognitive function.
- Mindful eating is the practice of paying attention to our food choices. This can help us develop a healthier relationship with food and make more nourishing choices.
Relevant Quote: “Let food be thy medicine, and medicine be thy food.” – Hippocrates
If your mind and body are important, more so your spirit. We know eventually, we will go back to the dust we came from, except for our spirits, which will go to heaven or hell. I likely offended many people by citing heaven and hell; most everything is politically incorrect.
Anyhow, please invest time in prayer and discernment, as this will be more important than the “Ferrari” or the “Mr. Olympia” physique from prior sections.
- Prayer and meditation have been shown to have a wide range of benefits for both our physical and mental health.
- Prayer can help us to connect with something larger than ourselves (G-d) and find peace and strength in times of difficulty.
- Prayer can help us to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. It can also improve our focus, concentration, and memory.
Relevant Quote: “Prayer is not asking. Prayer is a longing.” – Kahlil Gibran
