For those of you who are relatively new to receiving our newsletters, you’ll see me on here every once in a while letting people know where I’m at with studying an Integrative Nutrition Course I’m doing. My own health problems and not getting answers led me here, so I dug deeper and discovered just how much diet affected my life. BUT, I also now realise how equally important camping is, as it connects my family with nature and being happy in every aspect of life makes for a happy body. You have to look at the body as a tree: you fix the problem at the roots and it grows healthy leaves.
Ie. if you have one part of your life that you’re not happy in, it throws other parts out of whack, including your digestion, and all sorts of health issues can then pop up…. I now realise just how much it is all intertwined, and no amount of eating your greens and orange pulp is going to fix the issues if you can’t firstly take a step back and know that they’re there. So this is why I think families with a passion for camping and getting outdoors perfectly intertwines with good clean healthy yummy food. It grounds you and takes the huzz buzz out of life. It’s a win win for all… because when you’re functioning properly and relaxed, happy and de-stressed, the family whole unit functions properly!
I don’t know about any of you, but if I don’t get to hang out with old Mother Nature for a while, I get antzy… real antzy. I think in this whirlwind of life in this day and age is all to easy to get sucked up and sent into a tizzy and before you know it, half your life is gone and you vaguely remember your child as a toddler. So here’s what I think we all need to to ‘Sslloow doowwn’ (this has much more effect if said in a Darth Vader voice).
