Lately, I’ve been working on my upcoming online course, Designed for Wellness. I’ll share more about the course at the end of this post, but I wanted to talk a bit about how lasting change happens in our lives, and one of the biggest mistakes we all make when we try to make healthy changes.
The ways we experience our days and how we feel in our bodies are the fruits of our health.
Some seasons in life we feel energized; other times we feel depleted and drained. Some days we’re overwhelmed; other times we are transcendent. We may feel heaviness in our body, or lightness and strength. We may combat stress daily or know a reserve of calm.
The fruits of our health manifest in how we experience life.
To produce better fruit, focus on the roots
When we are facing chronic times of bad or uncomfortable fruit, we tend to reach for “fruit fixes”– surface, quick fixes in attempt to bring some kind of relief to the situation.
But what is needed for any sustainable, real change in our health and well being is a root cure.
Let me give some examples.
