Last week we talked about visually seeing our souls, today I want to think about feeding our souls for a strong life.
Can we be mindful about our eating? Eat for our souls and think about our food options? Do we really need to just pick up a packet of crisps or chocolate bar for instant gratification and then feel rubbish?
I believe not, in yoga we feed our souls by our asanas both visually and internally and it is so important when our practice is over that we continue to look after our souls, nourish and cherish them.
By being mindful and eating for our souls we need to think what does our body actually want? What does our body need? Protein, then a handful of nuts, sugar then a portion of raspberries or blueberries both instant with no thought required, just a love for ourselves, a love to nourish ourselves and most importantly feel good about ourselves.
So next time you just pick up that instant gratification, stop, think, am I being mindful about myself and good to my soul.
