It’s consciousness what constructs peace

We spend our lives looking for happiness in what we do, think, eat, say, feel, but, every time we’ve expected to find happiness in those moments, Have we been conscious of respecting ourselves ans everything around us? (click here to read the text about respect)

Let’s imagine now the diversity that exists when it comes to tastes and the impact that the search for those sensations can have, would that instant of emotional happiness destroy or construct?

Let’s see some examples about how consciousness connects ourselves with more respect to our society (beings and environment):

    1. Being conscious about what our cells need to work in an appropriate way, do we construct when we eat what’s not really necessarie? When we nourish ourselves, we give our cells what’s necessary, we promote a culture of conscious consumption of food and simulate the natural and respectful production of food (click here to read the text abut micronutrients for our cells).
    2. Being conscious about the fact that we need to give our bodies quality sleep and physical activity, do we construct when we foment laziness in ourselves and others? When we exercise our bodies and sleep enough, we get to construct a more consistent health, what leads ourselves to create with more quality, through time, more sustainable lifestyles.
    3. Being conscious of the fact that we can construct with facts and words from our feeling of unity, do we construct when we want to be superior to others or compete for survival? When we practice self acceptance about what we really are, through our own selfknowledge, we get to accept differences and we are able to learn new ways of expressing ourselves to construct, with a purpose, a different style of doing things (click here to read the text about coherence and selfknowledge).
    4. Being conscious about the fact that, for having the right to bring a human being to earth it is essential to be an example of what we want for a more united humanity, do we construct when we decide to satisfy our sexual desires without being willing to assume the responsibility for any circumstances? When we understand that we can channel our emotions in a different way, from the one we’ve learnt, deciding by conviction becomes part of our lives (click here to read the text about deciding by conviction) and we get to have more clarity in the purpose of every single action, thus, focusing our energy in constructing from ourselves in unity.

Being happy can be destructive for society, because it has become an expression used to satisfy personal desires, being conscious is constructive because it leads ourselves to understand that every decision made has an impact in ourselves and everything, and everyone, around us, and that, as beings, we need to develop our knowledge about the place we live in, to integrate, in the most assertive and constructive way possible, our talents to the construction of what we want from unity (click here to read the text about humanity transformation).

So, if we want peace, transparency, coherence and respect, are we constructing that through each feeling, thought, word and action in our lives? (click here to read the text about peace construction)

4 steps to expand nutritional consciousness

Version en español

versão em portugues

All our lives we have been used to eat in an “inherited” way set by our family or culture. In some cases we know the reason, which may or may not be real and useful for ourselves

The view I bring today is checking how our feeding is in this moment so we can understand it and transform it into nutrition.

When we become aware that food contains macronutrients (carbohidrates, proteins and lipids) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), we start to see the relevance of knowing what we eat.

Our bodies need vitamins, minerals and water so they can work properly. That’s the main goal of nutrition, giving what the body needs through food, that is the most efficient way of increasing the availability of macro and micronutrients to each of our cells (click here to read the text about nutrients and cell regeneration).

It’s necessary to know the reason why we follow certain diet, and by diet I mean feeding (or nutritional) habits we have, because, only then, we identify the necessity of transforming habits that can bring about balance and high energy to our bodies (click here to read the text about more energy through carbohydrates)..

The next steps connect us to our own consciousness. Remember that each food reacts differently in each body, that’s why it’s important to learn how to get our own body signals. As we know ourselves better we get better results through nutrition. Let’s follow this:

  1. Consuming more natural than processed food. Natural food contains more micronutrients, and these, in turn, are better absorbed by the body.
  2. Consuming food without mixing to determine if what we’re eating is good for our bodies.
  3. Consuming the most part of the food before noon, eat a little and, at least, 3 hours before bed time.
  4. Consuming liquids and solids, at least, 1 hour apart.

I invite you to do the test, send this post to any one who could be interested and share your own results to motivate other people through your own example.

I’ve been following these steps to keep my body healthier, it makes me feel like I have more energy, and my sleep quality and the speed of my digestion process have improved. If you’ve already done this, What have you felt by changing this habits? (click here to read the article about energy and nutrients through healthy fats)
