Why Are You Eating Healthier?
Will you share your story about why you’re eating healthier today?
We’d like to learn your personal health story. What made you decide to eat healthier? Did your doctor recommend you change your eating habits? Does your body respond negatively to certain foods? Did you get tired of buying processed, fat- and chemical-laden foods?
Did you know that your personal health story can inspire others to take their first steps toward creating a healthier lifestyle and living a longer, happier life? To you that might not sound like much, but to the person you’ve inspired, you could change, if not save their life!
What were you previously experiencing and feeling before making changes to your health?
Our world today is filled is so many toxic things–from personal care and cleaning products to the foods we eat. We are constantly surrounded by things that enter our body and cause it to slow down, break down and age faster. We can’t escape all toxins, but we CAN do our best to improve our health whenever possible. By eating clean food, reducing the use of plastics and paper and simply shopping smarter, our health can improve noticeably!
If you were unaware of the things that caused your body to carry around a toxic burden, then you have probably experienced more than enough fatigue, aches and pains and brain fog. How do you think these things affect your work performance and daily life? How well did you fight off colds and sickness? Did you feel like you were being drained of energy that you felt your body should naturally have? How did it make you feel when pain kept you from doing the things you wanted to do? What did it feel like to misplace phone or keys for the tenth time or you forgot something important…again? This is a great place to begin your story!
Why was it important for you to make the choice to improve your health? What did you do personally that made the difference?
This is the most important part of your story! Did you create the changes because you wanted to or because someone else asked or told you to? Your story can help someone else recognize similar patterns that you may be dealing with. Your journey is what may spark someone to take their first steps to choose organic produce over conventional. They may decide to reduce the number of processed foods they consume or stop drinking sodas. They may choose to begin eating organic or less processed foods. Your “why” can be a very powerful motivator for someone to create change! And the steps you took can inspire them to continue on their new health journey.
Who or what inspired you?
Did someone or something suddenly inspire you to begin eating healthier? Or perhaps you participated in a workshop or webinar, read a book, or heard something on the news that inspired you. Maybe it was due to a health condition or advice from your doctor or health professional that caused you to make changes. Whatever that pivoting point was, we’d love to hear what and when it was as you share it with others. If we are to change how our community eats and thinks about food, it will take stories like yours to help drive that change. Go back in time and think about what or who inspired you and share that. Provide a clear picture, links, books or anything else another person can visualize or do themselves.
How do feel now? What has changed?
This is the second most important part of your story! Before you felt crummy and now you feel better. What changed? You can inspire someone else to feel better, have more energy or simply look and feel like they did years ago again? You can! Perhaps someone has been struggling with weight retention for decades or perhaps another person has dealt with headaches or heartburn. They never thought about considering removing gluten from their diet or knew how drinking less coffee could change the ph of their intestinal tract or reduce headaches. The changes you’ve experienced could be just what someone else, who may be suffering from similar symptoms, needs to hear. They WANT to feel better, but they just didn’t know where to start.
What motivates you to continue to live a healthier lifestyle?
Your personal health journey may motivate others to take control of their own health now, instead of pushing it off for a “better time” sometime in the future. Our fast-paced world causes many people to procrastinate when it comes to personal health. Your story may help someone learn that they are not alone with the problems they may be experiencing. Through your personal stories, we hope to inspire people to seek help beyond western medicine. We want to encourage them to eat REAL food that nourishes the body, not break it down. We’re ready to create a healthier community. Are you with us? Let’s do this together!
