At Integrative Nutrition, Joshua teaches that spirituality is a vital part of a person's primary food – what sustains you beyond your plate, like your career, relationships, exercise, and spirituality.
Today we’re talking about spirituality. You don’t have to be religious to be spiritual; it’s important to get in touch with what spirituality means to you as a bio-individual. Most of the time our minds are running a mile a minute, and we need to tune into our spiritual side to feel connected, calm, and confident.
Spirituality doesn't have to be complicated or time consuming. It can be as simple as taking a hike in the woods or park – it’s all about appreciating the beauty of nature. Perhaps quiet meditation or yoga is your style of spirituality.
Here are a few ideas to experiment with spirituality:
1. Try meditating.
2. Take a yoga class.
3. Read a spiritual self-help book.
4. Take a walk in nature or spend time camping.
5. Unplug from technology for a few days and listen to your inner voice.
If nothing else, I encourage you to take 10-15 minutes to find a quiet space, calm your mind, feel your breath, and contemplate spirituality. Be present in the moment.
The benefits of spirituality are countless. When you’re in tune with yourself and are able to quiet your mind, you can transform your life. These are five benefits of integrating spirituality into your life:
1. Reduces stress.
2. Supports weight loss.
3. Diminishes anxiety.
4. Improves happiness and reduces the risk of depression.
5. Makes you feel like there’s more time in each day.
