Just like how modern society handles it’s health problems, by covering up the symptoms; the fashion and make-up industry head towards covering up the apparent “flaws” the human body seems to have – in both cases, fighting a losing battle.
“…if a baby cries for food, would you tape over it’s mouth, just so it stops crying?….”
It remains a mystery why this approach is still in existence; if a baby cries for food, would you tape over its mouth, just so it stops crying? this is exactly what you are doing when you put make-up over your face because of bad skin, or take an aspirin to cover up a headache.
If the above paragraph sounds like you, then you need to consider changing your approach; this means tackling the issue from its source and not covering up the symptoms (be it powder for bad skin, or pharmaceutical drugs for depression).
Scientists already know, attractiveness in a human is measured by the individual’s level of health; using this, we can safely say, that raising one’s health to optimal levels, is the best way to become “a hottie” (hehe).
Look at yourself as a trinity of mind, body and spirit – you cannot simply focus on your body (eating right + exercise) and have a cloudy mind with unstable thoughts (mind, body & spirit) and emotions; or have no alone time for reflection on your goals (mind, body & spirit) and intentions.
For Example: Let’s say that you eat right and exercise 2-3 times a week, which in turn affects your mental clarity to some extent because of the mind-body-spirit connection; despite that, you lose your temper several times a week – this will damage your physical body (very angry = increased heart rate = high blood pressure = organ damage) which counteracts your goal of health (and being a hottie); after all, if the body (eating right, and exercise) can inflict changes to the mind (such as mental clarity), the mind can also inflict changes in the body.
An example of an aligned plan for reaching optimal health could be – exercising and eating correctly (body) whilst meditating (spirit) to stabilize your thoughts and emotions; and learning (mind) from your experiences as well as others, about health then deciding to focus on a specific routine.
As you can see, reaching optimal health is just as much a science, as it is an art. This is why it is important to combine latest scientific research with ancient health practices to guide you towards a vibrant mind, body and spirit.
