We eat what we are

We've all heard the phrase, "You are what you eat."  Meaning, if you aren't eating foods that are good for you, then your body will suffer, go into stress, and you will more than likely get sick.  But have you ever heard the phrase, "You eat what you are?"  Our thought streams often affect how we treat our bodies as well.  For example, if our thoughts focus on negativity, anxiety, things that happened in the past, or worries about the future, chances are pretty good that we will not make healthy choices in what we feed our bodies.  Thoughts lead to feelings which influence actions.  The negative thought streams in our heads create bad feelings which lead us to make unhealthy decisions.  But if this holds true, then the opposite must hold true as well.  If we can change our negative thought streams to positive thought streams, getting us out of that grand canyon of negativity, then we will feel good which will influence actions that support our healthy state of mind and body.  Quite literally, we will eat what we are.  Remember, it is physically impossible to feel bad when you think good thoughts!
