Declutter Your Body

Declutter  Your Body

In my first blog about tidying up, I gave you many examples of how to declutter your environment.  Although that was a good start, we aren’t done with this tidying business.  I want to talk to you about your body.  How does one clean-up their body?  Well, just like in your environment, I invited you to get rid of things that don’t make you feel good or bring you joy.  The same goes for your body.  Stop using your body as dumping ground for food that might taste good, but makes you feel bad.

A Fine-Tuned Machine

I image my body to be a high performing machine.  Something that I need and want to handle with the best of care. Consider this.  If you owned a Ferrari would you put cheap gas in it?  Would you add sugar to the tank to help it perform better?  I am guessing not, because the result would be disastrous.  The same goes for your body.  I think of food as fuel.  I know what foods make me feel and look good and I know which ones don’t.  I only consume ‘fuel’ that allows my body to operate and feel it’s best.

Here, I offer you my first in a series and brief suggestions on areas of your life that will likely benefit from some clean-up.
