in the form of two timeless tasks
There are some simple things that don’t change over time. From the moment you enter this earth until the day you leave, your body still requires nourishment. On your “birth” day, can you think of what it is that gave you life and then sustained it? It was the first breath you took that gave you a life outside the womb. You inhaled a deep diaphragmatic breath that filled your belly with oxygen. This simple thing is what continues our lives, day after day. Surprisingly, if we were to be graded on if we were breathing correctly, did you know most of us would fail? To test yourself, place one hand on your stomach and the other on your chest. Inhale and notice which hand moves first. Is it your top hand or bottom? If you are breathing with your diaphragm it should be your bottom hand that moves first.
The next thing you do after taking a few breaths on from the moment of birth, is you nurse, and get nourished in the form of food. Years later, we still require this, yet again, most people would fail if they were being graded on how and what they ate. Do you eat with the intention that your body is a temple and needs vitamins and nutrients to run efficiently? Or do you eat to satisfy a craving, out of addiction, or worse off to hide from something?
The time will come when one day you take your last breath, but more than likely, you can control that by how you live your life and nourish your body. Each day breathe deeply, and eat to fuel your body furnace, not just to get a full feeling. Think of eating as the foundation for good health. You can save yourself now from a death caused too early because lack of proper nourishment.
Just for today focus on feeding your body oxygen with your breath and nourishing your body with healthy food!
