Self-Love Requires Self-Awareness: Heres How to Cultivate Both Part 1 "IndyWatch Feed Food"

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
 Anas Nin

This is not a feel-good, you are perfect-as-you-are kind of article.

This article is about getting real with yourself. You are human. Humans have flaws. The sooner you find out what yours are, the sooner you can work on improving them.

Becoming more self-aware even when it is painful has tremendous value and can absolutely change your life for the better.

There are two things humans are prone to doing, much to our detriment:

1) Not acknowledging and improving our weaknesses

2) Not acknowledging and developing our strengths

Knowing that you are a flawed being doesnt mean you cant be kind to yourself. After all, you love others your family and friends despite their flaws.

You can extend yourself the same courtesy.

Talk to yourself like you would someone you love. Brene Brown

Most of us are harder on ourselves than we are on others. Socially, this makes some sense I dont think any of us want to live in a brutally honest world (the one presented in the thought-provoking film The Invention of Lying comes to mind), but we arent doing ourselves any favors by not being self-aware.

In this two-part feature, we will explore what self-awareness is, common obstacles to attaining it, how it can greatly improve your life, and how to cultivate it.

What is Self-Awareness?

Self -awareness is having a clear perception of your personality, including strengths, weaknesses, thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions, explains Pathway to Happiness. Self-awareness allows you to understand other people, how they perceive you, your attitude and your responses to them in the moment.

Psychology professor and writer Dr. Adrian Furnham describes self-awareness as the accurate appraisal and understanding of your abilities and preferences and their implications for your behavior and their impact on others. Its reality-testing; a calibration against the facts of life.

Why is being self-aware important?

Fear, the destroyer of dreams and happiness

Some fear is rational and protects us from danger.

But sometimes fear turns into irrational panic about imagined catastrophes that will likely never become reality. Chances are, you have heard of this popular acronym for fear: False Evidence Appearing Real.

Fear of loss, fear of failure, fear of success, fear of the unknown, fear of pain, rejection, isolation, humiliation, disappointment, love, responsibility, fear of deaththe list of things humans fear is endless.

Thats a shame.

Think of all the opportunities and experiences youve missed because of fear.

To become more self-aware, it is crucial to understand and face your fears. Living in fear can prevent you from pursuing your dreams, achieving success, forming healthy relationships, and being truly happy.

The only way to ease our fear and be truly happy is to acknowledge our fear and look deeply at its source.   Thich Nhat Hanh

When you know yourself, deep inside you have the power to resolve the issues that scare you rather than repeating them unconsciously, The Self-Awareness Guy writes. He adds:

Many competent, well-meaning, intelligent people genuinely believe that something bad will happen if they think differently, change their behavior patterns, examine their feelings, listen to their inner voices or live consciously. They settle for being someone theyre not and live lives that doesnt make them authentically happy. Thankfully, self-awareness can help anyone discover who they are and what their true path in life is.

Perhaps a better acronym for fear would be Face Everything And Rise.

In one of my favorite books, Fear: Essential Wisdom for Getting Through the Storm, Thich Nhat Hanh (who is a Bud...

The One Simple Secret to Eating Well and Living Naturally on a Budget "IndyWatch Feed Food"

I want to eat healthfully, but it is just too expensive!

This is a common dilemma one Ive heard countless times in my (many) years as a nutrition and weight loss professional.

Organic, non-GMO food is more expensive than conventional options in most cases. And, if you have other dietary restrictions and preferences like gluten-free, kosher, vegan, keto, Whole30, or Paleo your grocery bills may be high due to the costs associated with the specialty products you need.

If you want to use natural, non-toxic products in your home, your expenses can get even higher.

But I have great news for you.

There is a way to get those products at significantly lower prices: Thrive Market.

Heres how Thrive Market works:

This unique online store offers over 5,000 products at wholesale prices youll pay far less than you would at your local store. Youll save 25-50% on each item and they will be shipped right to your door.

Not only will shopping at Thrive Market save you lots of money it is easier than grocery store shopping. Every single product is tagged by over 70 different values, so you can sort the entire online catalog by categories like Non-GMO, Organic, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Keto, Paleo, Fair Trade, Big 8 Allergen Free, Moms, Dairy Free, and many more.

In fact, now you can shop for Starter Kits for various lifestyle preferences, including

Healthy Snack Sampler

Keto Diet Starter Kit

Paleo Starter Kit

Vegan Starter Kit



Physical Fitness and Survival: Why Your Body Needs Recovery Time "IndyWatch Feed Food"


We often focus on tasks to do: physical exercise, and numerous physically-demanding work, such as woodcutting, building, gardening, snow removal, and so forth.  I have written in several pieces about the importance of recovery, but I am emphasizing it here in-depth.  Most people are so busy in the course of the day that they neglect to take the time to physically recover from what they have doneand recover properly.

Your Bodys Recovery is Important

Such a recovery means more than just simple rest.  It entails nutrition and understanding how the human bodys physiology works.  As I have stressed in the past, your protein intake is critical to tissue repair.  I also emphasized how you must take in protein and carbohydrates within a hour at the conclusion of demanding physical exercise that lasts one hour or more.  You may also have to increase that protein/carbohydrate intake more frequently.

If you have worked a physically-demanding occupation, you may have a good basis for understanding already of these concepts and it may just be a matter of touching upon some of the finer points.  Construction workers put in 8, 10, or 12 hour days with only a couple of short breaks and a lunch break in the middle.  A tremendous amount of hydration is required during their day.  Your muscles are 80% water.  Stands to reason that dehydration means a loss of muscle tissue.

Remember glycogen that I mentioned in earlier articles?  When you work hard physically or exercise, glycogen is converted into glucose to fuel your body.  This is taken directly from stores in your body.  After that glycogen is depleted and youve hit the wall, then your body will break down its own proteins in the form of muscle tissue and converts those proteins to glycogen.  For every half hour of extra physical labor you perform without replacing lost glycogen, protein, and carbs, your body will take 5-6 grams of proteins from out of your muscles to do the job.  That is referred to as cannibalism, which is where the body eats...


Saturday Stories: Gender Balance, One In 259, And Terminal Wisdom "IndyWatch Feed Food"

Am somewhat pleased to report that after being inspired by this piece by Ed Yong in The Atlantic, on how he spent two years correcting the gender imbalance of his quoted sources, I went back over my last year of Saturday Story pieces to discover that 46% of the 292 stories I've shared were written by women.

Chika Stacy Oriuwa, the only black student in her medical school class of 259 at U of T, in Flare, on how in her white coat she is more black than ever.

Alastair McAlpine, in The Guardian, expounds on his viral tweets about the lessons he's learned from terminally ill children.
