There’s a reason why planet Earth has successfully survived for millions of years without fail. And now, you can tap into these simple (yet very powerful) longevity secrets and apply them to your own life for greater health and happiness
When you look closer at the Earth, you’ll see that it works as a single living organism. Just like your own body, the Earth consists of several moving “systems” that not only work together in a seamless way to create a state of homeostasis, but it’s also able to adapt and make changes in order to survive.
Many of these changes have to do with the weather (think hurricanes, floods, tornados, earthquakes, etc.). The reason why these natural “disasters” occur is because the planet is trying to maintain balance or a healthy state of equilibrium. Without these adjustments and shifts, the earth wouldn’t be able to survive (and we wouldn’t either).
There are several big lessons you can learn from the laws of Mother Nature that can be applied to your own health and wellness. And they’re not as complicated as you may think. Our planet is mysteriously intelligent. Not only will it make the proper adjustments or changes it needs to survive and thrive, but it’s also capable of “shedding” off potential irritants that can disrupt the natural flow of life itself.
If you look at your own state of health, and most importantly – view your body as its own independent planet with various interconnecting ecosystems – it can transform the way you think about yourself. It’ll force you to look more objectively at your health, your lifestyle, your habits (both positive and negative), what you eat, how you move, how you think, how you flow through life, how you resist certain things, and more.
To put it more simply: if you look at your body as a living and breathing planet, ask yourself – what kind of shape is it in? What does it need to “shed” or change to operate in a more optimal way? Do you need to stop smoking? Maybe cut back on excessive alcohol or fried foods? Or maybe you need to get more exercise or better quality of sleep?
You are 100% unique. You are your own planet, with your own habits, daily rhythms, changeable belief patterns, and so much more. There will never be anyone like you not only now, but ever. And if you want to live an abundant, healthy, and vibrant life, it’s important that you follow the same flow of life like Mother Nature herself. This means remaining consistent with positive habits that enable growth, eliminating the negatives that inhibit good health, eating whole foods, getting lots of fresh air and water, and most of all – being able to adapt and change as needed.
There’s a quote that says: “Every season is one of becoming, but not always one of blooming. Be gracious with your ever-evolving self.” No matter how poor your health may be, or how bleak your future may seem, there’s always a turning of the seasons. There’s always an opportunity for renewal. That’s the beauty about being human. We have choices. We can take action. We can adapt and change.
