Take a few moments to sit or lie down in complete stillness. Put one hand on your lower abdomen and another over your heart. Take a deep breath, a breath that expands your belly and lungs, and hold it. Most people tend to tense up when holding their breath, but its important to drop your shoulders relax and hold it for at least 5-10 seconds. Slowly release your breath through your nose or mouth, and become completely aware of yourself and your body. Feel your heart beating beneath one hand as the other rests on your abdomen, and think about all of the work our bodies must complete every day.
When there aren't enough nutrients in our food, the body can't digest properly to support it's functions. In order to perform at our best, we must feed ourselves with foods containing a mix of different nutrients. I could go into detail, but I believe that there is plenty of additional information on this in a few of my previous posts. Give your body the TLC that it needs and feed it with foods that help rather than hurt it. That's right party animals: Be nice to your liver, too! Remember: "You are what you eat (and drink)!"
