Well, it's not only the end of the year, but also the end of a decade....
Hopefully you are ageing healthily, meaning you don't feel any older!
I like to think the main measure of time passing is that the people around you are getting older. For me, that’s seeing my children getting bigger! But I still feel the same, if not, more vital as I get older—although the body does seem to require more work to maintain its shape!
I'd like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude for your support this past year, and for some of you, this past decade!
When I first made BePure One, I was hopeful that I would be able to sell enough so that I could continue taking it.
To see BePure blossom into a thriving community of like-minded people doing good, makes me feel incredibly proud, and humbled to be a part of.
Christmastime, and the holiday period is an opportunity to celebrate with the ones we love. For many of us—myself included—we can sometimes get drawn into celebrating with excessive amounts of foods or drinks we wouldn't normally have.
I'd like to share with you three things I'm going to be playing with this holiday season to stay grounded amidst the noise.
1. Keeping Nutrition Up
I sometimes find it hard to remember to take all my supplements when I'm on holiday—and I take a lot!
This year, I'm going focus on being more organised around my supplements, so I can get the short and long-term benefits of taking them, especially as some 'not-so-nutrient-dense' foods tend to creep in at Christmastime.
For me, this looks like, packing up three days worth of supps at a time in pill holder, so that they're ready to go when I am. I can also set a reminder on my phone, so that even if I forget, I've scheduled a reminder.
Done is better than perfect. Even if I don't take all of my usual line-up, but I've had the baseline nutrients from BePure One to support my body's nutritional demands.
2. Eating Mindfully
Often at Christmas or while on holiday, I can go into full-on consumption-mode, eating and drinking just because there is food in front of me.
This year I'm going to be bringing some mindfulness to meal times, asking, “am I full or am I just putting eating this because it feels good?”
Nothing wrong with feeling good, but often there are other things you can do to feel good instead (that are more nourishing for you).
3. Filling Up The Soul
In the Western World, we've confused filling our soul with filling our body—I know I have.
Often celebrations involve food and drink. At the end of the day, celebrating is about filling up the soul with love, rather than filling our bellies with food.
At the end of the day, celebrating is about filling up the soul with love, rather than filling our bellies with food.
This holiday period I'm going to get out there, and do something I love, that fills up my soul. Even just looking at my loved ones, being present and grateful for their uniqueness can fill the soul for me, and so I'm going to fill my soul with love.
You may want to try some of these too. Have a safe, happy, and nourishing holiday season.
In health and happiness,
