Living a naturally healthy life free from diabetes, overeating, over-drinking, smoking and the associated diseases, requires making healthy choices. Making the healthy choice, however, can be challenging because we get caught up with feelings of deprivation. Many people attempt to muscle through the challenge using only will-power. Inevitably, will-power will fatigue. That is why it’s so important to acknowledge all your desires – the desire for pizza and the desire to be fit and healthy – and give them equal attention. During this podcast, I discuss the importance of recognizing our competing desires and giving both thoughts equal consideration, and how this practice is essential for reaching health goals.
