Did you get enough sleep last night, or were you burning the candle at both ends trying to catch up on work projects? What did you eat for breakfast? Was it a coffee and pastry on the run, or did you savour a wholesome breakfast full of healthy fats and vital micronutrients? Finally, did you spend the entirety of your day at a desk, or did you find time and space to give the gift of movement to your body?
With the metaphor in mind, it is the food we eat, how we move, and how we balance our stress equation with rest and recovery that represent the big rocks of healthy living. When the big rocks of healthy living – real food, movement, rest and relaxation – guide daily lifestyle choices, the body responds by cultivating energy, strength, and vitality. These qualities impact every aspect of life.
