Good nutrition quotes:

The human body is incredible.  Part of what makes it so impressive (apart from the concept of conciousness and self awareness) is its ability to regenerate itself.  Your outer layer of skin, the epidermis, replaces itself every 35 days.  You are given a new liver every six weeks.  Your stomach lining replaces itself every 4 days, and the stomach cells that come into contact with digesting food are replaced every 5 minutes.  Our entire skeletal structures are regenerated every 3 months.  Your entire brain replaces itself every two months.  And the entire human body, right down to the last atom, is replaced every 5-7 years. And it is replaced from the components of the food we eat, what we drink and the air we breathe. So choose what you put in your body wisely!

– Brent Lambert


You are, quite literally, what you eat. Every bite, every drink matters.

Suppose you read about a pill that you could take once a day to reduce anxiety and increase your contentment. Would you take it? Suppose further that the pill has a great variety of side effects, all of them good: increased self-esteem, empathy, and trust; it even improves memory. Suppose, finally, that the pill is all natural and costs nothing. Now would you take it? The pill exists. It’s called meditation.

Nature’s impact on our health:

I go to nature to be  soothed and healed, and to have my senses put in order.    

– John Burroughs


Thousands of tired, nerve-shaken, over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going into nature is going home; that wildness is a necessity; and that mountain parks and reservations are useful not only as fountains of timber and irrigating rivers, but as fountains of life.

– John Muir


Over 100 studies have shown that being in nature, or even viewing nature in photos and videos, can have positive impacts on our brains, bodies, feelings, thought processes, and social interactions. In particular, viewing nature seems to be inherently rewarding, producing a cascade of position emotions, calming our nervous systems and reducing stress.   

– ‘How Nature Makes us feel good’ 


Humans evolved for thousands of years by spending most of their time outside, physically active amongst our natural environment. It’s only recently that we have started to live a mostly sedentary lifestyle, indoors, sat in front of a tv or computer screen. It’s not good for us. Most of us have experienced the boost that comes from being outside, in nature, in the fresh air with the sunlight beaming down upon us. We just need to do more of it.  

– A Godsons Truth



Be healthy, Live better:

Think of all those times you have been laid low by illness and how bad you felt. Imagine when you are really old and your body is worn out. Hopefully if you are reading this you are pretty healthy, your body is in relatively good working order, you’ve got all your senses, you can walk, move, maybe even run! Just take a moment to really value your health while you have it, don’t take it for granted and just do all you can to be as healthy as you can be. Your life will be better for it.
