Feeling Pleasure for Your Health

Life can be stressful. And I think that social media doesn't help. Constantly, in my face all the time, I feel like I am getting reminders of what to eat and how to exercise. Am I doing enough of this or too much of that? It can be overwhelming. And sometimes it makes being healthy or trying to get healthy no fun.

So when this article showed up in my email today, I just couldn't wait to share it with you. Chris Kresser, one of my favorites, writes all about how to fit in pleasure into your life and shares why it is just as important to your health as eating right and exercising, maybe even more.

Many of the ideas shared not really new, but great reminders because we often know we should be doing them, but just don't. And many are free to do and will instantly help you feel better. I for one, needed this reminder today as I was getting crabby trying to work on some part time projects. Sunshine and playing outside was an instant mood enhancer.

What are your thoughts on the article? How do you fit in pleasure into your life? I would love to hear what you think!


  1. An interesting article; thanks for sharing. I sew, listen to music and love to get outdoors, to work in the garden or walk in my favourite places.

    1. Sounds like we have some common "hobbies". Each of your activities are ways that I like to get rid of stress and energize my soul. And it is generally pretty easy to fit something in everyday!
