Food, Mind, Body, and Soul

Food, Mind, Body, and SoulTo mankind, food is the major source of energy. It is a life giving substance, and therefore it has a direct impact on the mind, body, and soul of the person.

It is quite necessary to eat smartly, judiciously, and tastefully to appeal to all the organs and senses of the human body. However, healthy and mindful eating isn’t a common act in the current times of unlimited junk and fast food. In the modern age, anything and everything that is instant in its appeal takes over which is precisely why people prefer to consume instant food items. People don’t like cooking food anymore, nor do they like to go to restaurants that have healthy food choices. According to several reports and statistics, only a handful of people are conscious about their food habits.

One of the main reasons for such a behavior is that people aren’t aware of the effects of the food on the human body. Most people look at food as something to satisfy hunger thereby dismissing its effects straightforwardly.

For example, eating a lot of oily and spicy junk food leads to creation of restlessness in the body, drinking endless amount of coffee leads to body paranoia after which body stops reacting to the cup of coffee, not to forget the amount of pounds mindless eating adds to one’s body, and so on.

A lot of people assume that healthy eating takes time and is difficult to practice when the fact of the matter is that they are just accustomed to their old habits, and cannot break the chain. You can eat healthy just by introducing a few small changes every day to your eating habits, for example drinking an additional glass of water, replacing that last cup of coffee with green tea, buying carrots as snacks instead of potato chips.
