An unnatural way of life
A ‘normal’ human day now looks something like this…
We commute to work by sitting down in a car or bus. When we get to work we sit down again and stare at screens for most of the day. We are so busy being busy that we don’t have time to prepare healthy meals, so instead we slowly poison our body with disease causing foods. We eat it as quickly as we can so that we can go back to being busy. There is no time to relax with the pressures of work and endless distractions. If we move our bodies at all we see it as a punishment for eating too much. We live with chronic pain and feel exhausted at the end of the day. So we sit on a couch to numb ourselves by looking at another screen or ‘connect’ with others on yet another screen. All the while, our soul is telling us that something is wrong, but we just can’t quite put our finger on what it is. So we just carry on as ‘normal’.
Although this routine is seen as ‘normal’ do you think it is?
Do you think it’s natural and healthy?
I do not think so.
Rather, it is an evolutionary mismatch…
Sure, we have to do some of these things in order to make a living. In isolation they are not much of a problem.
But we have forgotten what it means to be human.
We have forgotten that we were made of nature.
We have forgotten that our biological self thrives on, in, and with nature.
We have been neglecting our biological need for natural movement, natural light, natural water, natural food and a natural environment.
We have accepted living in an unnatural world that our mind-body-spirit have not evolved to live in.
Chronic pain, lack of vitality, obesity, depression – things modern society tells us are not only normal, but unavoidable.
But there is a better way.
Reconnect with our natural way of life
To live healthy human lives, we must reconnect with our natural state i.e. biological and the evolutionary state. It’s not about living like a caveman.. we don’t need to learn how to be naturally healthy, we just need to remember how!
We already have everything within us to achieve natural health. By looking inward and building more natural habits we can give our mind-body-spirit the biological signals it needs to thrive.
The world we live in makes this difficult. Very difficult.
But that’s where a holistic human centered approach to coaching comes into play. By guiding you as a unique human to know yourself and build better habits in the context of the world we live in, we can work together to return you to your natural, thriving state.
