Food for the Soul

When we want to be physically healthy, we choose the food that we eat, we pay close attention to the nutrients the food has to offer. Same goes to our soul, our thoughts and feelings are equally important to nourish and energize our mind, spirit and soul. Feed your mind with positivity, it will strengthen its portal and will keep our soul healthy and nourished.

Live with Gratitude. A grateful mind is constantly fixed upon the best; therefore, it becomes the best; it takes the form and character of the best, and will receive the best. Having gratitude is keeping an expression of thankful appreciation for the benefits that one has received or will receive.
Having a grateful mind will continually expect good things and the expectation becomes faith.
Everyday, before you get out of bed and before you call it a day, always make sure to nourish yourself by thinking of the things you are grateful for each day. Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. Everyday may not be good, but there is always something good in everyday.

Fill your heart with laughter. Never be afraid to be silly or throw a lame joke. Laughter is always good for the soul. It releases tension and relaxes muscles. Find reasons to laugh even in most insignificant situations. A good, hearty laugh boosts the immune system. It also decreases stress hormones and increases infection-fighting antibodies and immune cells, it has the ability to improve our resistance to diseases, leaving us with a healthy heart, mind and body. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins and will overall improve our emotional health.

When you seek something worth celebrating in everything you do, that is JOY. It is a positive feeling of great pleasure and happiness. It doesn’t have to be fancy; it could be a simple meal preparation for your family or looking out the window and being inspired by a beautiful sunset. Delight yourself with good things in life. Each day, you will find something that brings you joy

Love and Appreciation.
Love is a strong feeling of affection, protectiveness, warmth and respect. While appreciation is being able to recognize or understand that something is valuable and important. When we know how to value and treasure a thing or a person and we get the same feeling in return, it gives us a positive outlook towards ourselves. We take full value of each moment of life and fills in our body, mind and soul with good food for its nourishment.

No matter how physically fit our bodies are, it is of outmost importance that we have tranquility and peace in our souls. Food for the body is not enough. There must be food for the soul. We should stay away from negativity. Imagine your mind and soul as a garden, it is just rightful to keep it nourished, beautiful and flourishing. Feed it with good and healthy food that inspire you and lift you up. When you keep it as an exquisite place, you can find rejuvenation and inner peace. When your soul is at peace and healthy, your mind and heart will also be. ♥
