A couple of weeks ago, my aunt shared her facialist’s advice with me. She sees him every Friday and at the end of every session, she asks what she should “do” until they meet next. Each time she is met with the same response each time:
Khao, Piyo, Jiyo
If you translate that into English, it means Eat, Drink, Live
How’s that for some healthy advice? Wherever we turn, we are constantly bombarded with “tips” on how to achieve a healthier life, some more extreme than the other. After a certain point, taking such steps towards the pursuit of health ends up doing just the opposite due to the stress it inevitably brings. So this weekend, I challenge you to reconsider. Whether that means…
…Downing a shot of vodka [OR] a shot of wheatgrass
…Digging into a bowl of ice cream [OR] a bowl of salad
...Running a marathon [OR] indulging in a TV marathon
Take a breather & let your hair down. I can almost guarantee that you will be nourishing your mental & emotional health in the process. And if you’re worried that it makes you weaker, you’re wrong…it makes you human!
What was the last thing you did for your mental/emotional health?
