Americans love to center holidays around food and Independence Day is no exception.
Whether your plans include camping, a neighborhood barbeque or community festivities, you can bet that there will be plenty of grilled, fried and sugar-laden treats. As with any holiday, the key is to be mindful of your consumption—taste a little of everything, but balance it out with activities.
You just finished your last session of the day and you are pumped to get home and start implementing all of your new knowledge. As you reminisce about the day’s sessions, a loud rumbling sound comes from your midsection. You look down at your stomach and realize that it has been almost 12 hours since you last ate.
It’s challenging to make a mind-body connection in an era in which 87% of American adults own cell phones (45% of which are smartphones) and other electronic devices such as tablets and e-book readers. In addition to the rings, pings and dings our phones emit, there is the 24/7 news churn. Many of us are on media and screen overload, and unfortunately, it can be to the detriment of our inner peace. When being disconnected or off the grid is cause for anxiety, perhaps something has gone awry.
Whether it’s a sport, a hobby or a hidden talent, we all have at least one favorite activity that fills us with more joy than anything else we do. However, the greatest joy comes from being able to share the feeling with someone else.
