I blogged recently about how good a medicine for life laughter is, well, so is the sun. Just the boast to our vitamin D levels alone apart from the warming feeling and relaxation sitting in the sun can bring.
It’s good for the body and good for the mind.
Then you can add walking in nature, sitting by a river, sitting by the sea, walking through a field of tall grass and running your hands through it. Sitting watching a fire and so on.
The simple things, that have somewhat evaporated from our lives are the best things to make us feel good, to lift us, to even heal us.
The all cost nothing and are often easily accessible.
Instead, we often opt to numb ourselves with comfort food, alcohol or hide in trash TV, social media, the internet and any other short-term dopamine fixes we can find.
Get out in the sunshine.
What goes in is what comes out.
I am not referring simply to food. Although, obviously what we choose to eat and drink has a massive effect on both our mental and physical well-being. Therefore it effects our outputs.
Just as critical is what we choose to feed our mind with and equally the people we choose to spend our time with. It has a direct impact on our mindset, opinions, beliefs, actions and so many things.
Do we stop to think, is that input or person serving me well? Is it matching my values and goals in life? You will usually feel that nagging doubt if something is compromising your values.
Often we do not realise what we watch, read, listen to or the people we talk to can be having a drain on us, sucking our energy, especially with people, they can become energy vampires.
Outcomes are the direct result of inputs. So if you are looking for a different outcome take a look at what you feed yourself and change it.
