If we think about all the things the body needs, whether us, our family – or even our pets – we all share common needs. When this was first introduced to me by a wise physician, it was life-changing. I could do something about my health that did not involve more pills and more tests! I could make a difference in me.
The spokes are what we eat and drink, and how we breathe, move, and sleep. We can’t live without them, and often don’t even think about them. With focus, we can go from surviving to thriving.
You can do it! Pick the easiest one for you.
I’ll share my example. The spoke I chose to focus on was sleep. Without good sleep, I did not feel like preparing dinner, or exercising, and I think I was a bit grouchy to be around so my relationships likely suffered. I haunched over the keyboard with short, shallow stressful breaths. Not optimized. Once my sleep improved, the new energy trickled over into healthier meals and daily walks with my husband. With that one focus, my eating, breathing, movement and relationships improved.
Pick the easiest one for you to focus on – any improvement in one will translate to improvement in all.
