Finding Balance In Your Life

Ya' know today a sweet little teacher I met at the store asked me what I did. I told her that I owned my own business and was a Health & Wellness consultant. She looked down in my cart and said, "Hmm, a Health & Wellness Consultant and your eating fried foods?" I kind of chuckled and said, "Well you know, it really is about awareness and I try to never be too hard on myself. " At a birthday party will I have a piece of cake I know has partially hydrogenated oils? Will I let my children? Of course. I am aware that fried foods are not good for me as well as many other things I learn about through research every day. I am also aware that once in a while it will not kill me. The cumulative effects of ingesting toxins, partially hydrogenated fats, high fructose corn syrup, bathing in parabens and washing my hair and brushing my teeth with sodium lauryl sufates could definately kill me or cause some serious issues with my health. But it is a process and this is where I find myself now. So much better off than one year ago with a level of awareness that is helping my entire family to be healthier every day.

Balance. I help people to realize their personal level of balance for their healthful life. For some it may be a more strict regimen that works for them. For others, life is too short to think about toxins, heart disease or what they put on and in their bodies. The last time I checked, this was America (is it still?) and the only rule that applies is Freedom. Make your own Balance in your life...just stay away from aspartame K?
