The food we buy in shops and restaurants don’t always contains so much vitamins and minerals. Many vegetables and fruits are grown in bad soil and maybe also sprayed with toxics. If you eat at the big food chains, you can be sure it is not healthy. We are also exposed to a lot of stress, radiation, fear and negativ input from media. Very often we dont have time to relax, breathe and listen to what our body needs. We do the same movements too many time, use the same muscles, running around stressed and out of balance both physical and psychological. All this together make us vulnerable and an easy target for a virus or a disease of any kind. At Spainriding we pick as much as possible for our dinner in the garden and we also use wild plants. Every season has its specialties. Oranges, tomatoes, cabbage, sallad, herbs. We eat mostly vegetarian and not to much bread and pasta. If you want you can eat vegan and totaly free from gluten. A glas of wine is concidered an antioxidant.
Practicing Mindfullness; Paying attention in the present moment, and doing it intentionally and with non-judgment. Awareness of breath, body, feelings, emotions and/or thoughts (in sitting meditation practice or just during daily activities) You can do a walking meditation or just try to be totaly present while eating, chew slowly, really experience the aroma, taste and texture. Guided meditations where you can focus on your chackras or just scan your body is another way to help you stay present, focusing on your body and breath.
