Episode 23:22 - Tips For Making 2023 Your Best Summer Ever
We want to help you have your best summer ever.
By showing you the benefit of living WITH nature, not in opposition to it.
Unfortunately, living WITH nature is easier said than done.
I say this because most of us have allowed society to dictate our behaviors… behaviors that go against nature and are NOT good for our health.
When we go to bed, and when we wake up, should be dictated by the sun.
Yet most of us tend to go to bed, and wake up, later then nature would want.
Because we've been conditioned to.
We've been conditioned to stay up far too late at night and, during that time, we've been conditioned to expose ourselves to far too much electricity and artificial light.
Then we compound the problem by sleeping in past sunrise... ignorant to the fact that getting up, and going outside, as the sun rises carries with it some amazing health benefits!
Another area in which we don't live with nature is with our diets.
Specifically, we eat foods that are not part of God’s natural design.
Processed foods that aren't good for us… filled with sugar and chemicals.
We should know better.
We should do better.
These two areas alone - our relationship with the sun and with food - play a huge role in our health.
In fact, almost EVERY chronic disease is connected, in some way, to our inability to live WITH nature in these two areas.
Heart Disease, Cancer, Diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Obesity… the list goes on and on.
But that can change.
We can make up our minds to live WITH nature this summer.
To use the 99 days of summer to cultivate some incredible, healthy habits.
Here’s a few suggestions to get you started:
- Watch the sunset.
- Don’t eat after 7 P.M.
- Keep your home dark after 8 P.M.
- Go to bed by 10 P.M.
- Wake up with the sunrise
- Practice “Earthing” daily.
- Eat from the colors of the rainbow daily.
- Eat some fruit every day.
- Eat vegetables every day.
- Cut out sugar, wheat, and gluten.
- Commit to taking whole food nutritional supplements.
.- Pray daily.
- Journal daily.
- Write one letter each week.
- Read one book a week.
- Get a suntan (prepare for next winter).
- Go to the beach, the mountains, or hiking trails.
- Have fun. Smile. Enjoy life.
- Spend time with family and friends.
Here's the bottom line:
The key to having a great, and healthy, summer is to live WITH nature, not in opposition to it.
