It is a constant struggle to be healthy in an environment where over-consumption is the norm. We serve too much food, we eat too much food, we work too many hours. Boom! Gluttony in all forms!
We are influenced to neglect our health and fill emotional voids with food. We are told to work hard until we make it, exert all efforts to climb the mythical ladder, leaving no energy to exercise the actual body. The outward pressure to self-destruct is strong and shows no mercy. But those of us who have lifted the veil, can see the traps being set. We begin to fortify our mind to combat the temptations. We practice meditation to navigate through the darkness, in hopes of reaching the light of self-love. This is my journey! xo
