Health is so much more than just food. I am so fascinated by all the non physical aspects of wellbeing (the elements outside of eating and physical fitness). Studies show that our emotional health, the power of thought and stress levels play such a huge role in our lives and yes definitely, have a huge effect on us physically. From adrenalin spiking to becoming more susceptible to viruses we can really benefit from having mindfulness in our thoughts, words and attitudes towards ourselves. So what on earth has this got to do with Taylor Swift?Stay with me here.
I have been thinking A LOT about this phrase….
GUILT FREE EATING
And I want to say that I think these words should never go together! Life is about balance, if you are going to eat something, or have a glass of wine, YOU BETTER BLOODY OWN IT. Because having guilt around food and all the craziness that goes with ‘cheats’ and feeling bad in general IS NOT COOL. I’m such a strong believer if having a drink and dancing all night with your friends makes you feel refreshed and makes your soul lighter DO IT. If having the occasional bowl of pasta or chunk of white chocolate actually makes you happy DO IT. If it’s not making you happy, it’s making you feel crap physically, emotionally and you’re feeling guilty then don’t do it! Choose. Food should not have guilt around it, or associated with it, or the burden of judgement on it.
So what’s this got to do with Taylor Swift?I’ve decided to apply this notion in all areas of my life.
“Guilty Pleasures” begone!
Taylor I really love your new song ‘New Romantics’, I’m going to crank it to Vol 21 in the car, own it and have no guilt whatsoever about it.
Here’s to a guilt free life! Love you all,
