We spend a lot of time planning our next meal. Oftentimes, a meal is the focal point of family and social gatherings. And when on vacation, we often spend as much time planning out where we’d like to eat as we do searching for the perfect spot on the beach.

Food is important. After all, you are what you eat, right? Well, yes. But not entirely. Food nourishes and sustains us, and healthy, good-quality food (especially farm fresh!) is a great way to keep your body functioning at its finest. However, we are so much more than what we put into our mouths and bellies. All of the information that swirls around us, all of the thoughts that fill our minds, and the fears and worries that seem to consume us are all part of who we are. So, yes—you are what you eat. But on a higher level, you are what you think.

Instead of spending your days planning out the perfect meals, take time to simply be. Breathe in and out, taking time to appreciate this beautiful life that you have been gifted. Become more aware of the people and things around you. Spend a few extra moments breathing in the fresh summer air. Enjoy the sunset for just a few more minutes. Allow your negative thoughts to fall away and consciously create healthy, healing thoughts. Soon, you will not need thoughts at all. You will innately know how to replenish yourself. As you take in all of this goodness, smile at yourself. Be proud of this journey that you are on, and of the strong and able person you are becoming. Surround yourself with only good. Let everything that is around you feed your soul.
