Quotes:When your body is not getting the nourishment it needs, it signals you to keep eating more. The intake is going up, and the quality of food is going down. You’ve got a perpetual cycle that is going on now, that has become the status quo. People are starting to isolate themselves more. Have a purpose beyond yourself, otherwise people get self consumed. Invest in your well being so that you can feel good for a longer period of time. If you live life like a race, sometimes you’ll even forget where you need to go. Enjoy the ride, and find creative ways that allow you to love every moment of your day.
