Who says we shouldn't look and feel our best? Somewhere along the way, it has become the norm to associate aging with illness and the inability to do the things we love to do. Aging absolutely brings along some unwanted changes in our body - trust me, I know! But, I don't believe it means we need to adopt an attitude of "that's just the way it is now." Yes, it may take more effort than it used to - from experience, I can pretty much guarantee it will! But, I can also say that taking the time and effort to nurture our body and mind, and give it what it needs to thrive, is so worth it. And you....are absolutely worth it!
Something I've noticed is that sometimes we're not aware of how bad we feel until it improves.
This is possibly because feeling poorly has been a part of our life for so long and we don’t know any different or perhaps we learn to adapt to things like fatigue, aches & pains, digestive discomfort, allergies, mood swings, the inability to lose weight, etc., that we don’t even notice them anymore. Essentially, we stop listening to our bodies or perhaps attribute it to aging.
If we change our belief and realize that aging and illness do not need to go hand and hand, our body can repair itself if we give it what it needs.
