"there is a story in zen circles about a man and a horse. the horse is galloping quickly, and it appears that the man on the horse is going somewhere important. another man, standing alongside the road, shouts, 'where are you going?' and the first man replies, 'i don't know! ask the horse!' this is also our story. we are riding a horse, we don't know where we are going, and we can't stop. the horse is our habit energy pulling us along, and we are powerless. we are always running, and it has become a habit. we struggle all the time, even during our sleep. we are at war within ourselves, and we can easily start a war with others. we have to learn the art of stopping."

even amid fascist attempts to coup your country, take a moment to stop. breathe, meditate, observe, take in. if you can stay present now, then nothing can distract your focus.

Achieving and maintaining wellness primarily comes down to our daily habits. it's typically not a 'missing' medication, or even natural supplement "deficiency," that causes us to feel less than ideal. it's usually related to how we're spending our time and treating our bodies (and minds!) on the reg. i get asked a lot how to boil this down and make it simple, so i've written a quick list of the main habits i try to put into my days to promote health. the link is in my bio.👆🏽 *note - i even made a neat little pdf you can download and print off for yourself if you want! bear with me - i get pretty impressed with myself when i figure out a new "technology thing." 😜 hope you find it useful and be sure to post and share some of your favorite daily habits too! #healthyhabits
