Community

I saw a FB post recently & it made me pause to think about a few things.  Sadly, we are more limited during this covid-19 time, however there are many communication channels open to us…phone, skype, messaging to name just a few.

People can be doing so many things right, eating the good stuff, sleeping well, getting exercise – but still something is missing, one piece of the puzzle.

Modern society can be very insular, if you let it.  Often people are lonely, or lack a feeling of belonging.  Bottom line they have no community or social connections; they lack a support network.

Not the pic I planned but too cute not to share these little monkeys holding hands.

So how can you get this back?  Volunteering is one way or try taking a class or joining a club to learn something new. Even prioritising spending time with people you care about will increase a social connection.

What is for certain, is that this interaction gives you a better quality of life which is often healthier & happier.  Getting involved in things you care about, you are interested in, or spending it with people you love; will naturally grow these connections.  So set up that skype, or make that phone call 😊

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
