‘My 10 Mantras’

I have adopted these 10 mantras / idioms that I strive to live by not just in a nutritional sense but in other aspects of my life. Some are somewhat original…some not so much.  I share them from time to time throughout my posts but wanted to have a list of them somewhere altogether…

‘My 10 Mantras’ are sayings and aphorisms that have been developed and/or modified during the course of my personal health journey…

I have learned through the years that certain idioms have certain meanings that can encourage or simply illuminate our understanding of what path we would like our lives to take.  The following have deep meaning and personal inspiration to me:

Mantra #1:

“Ignorance is not bliss.”

Mantra #2:

“You can have your cake and eat it too—you just have to eat less cake!”

Mantra #3:

“Simplify—Eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”

Mantra #4:

“When you know better—you do better.”

Mantra #5:

“You are what you eat most of the time.” (not… “Most of the time, you are what you eat”)

Mantra #6:

“Too much of a good thing—is not a good thing.”

Mantra #7:

“The Solution lies in the Balance.”

Balance is not equalizing good and bad— but balancing what we learn to be good.

Mantra #8:

“Your level of success is based on your level of commitment.”

Mantra #9:

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

Mantra #10:

“You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink.”
