Resilience and You: How you can easily begin to sustain yourself and the world around you.

By Kathleen Anderson on Aug 20, 2015 at 12:12 PM in For Health Practitioners

In a very broad sense, it can be said that everything that sustains you also sustains the earth. If you are taking care of yourself, you are probably living a more natural lifestyle,  which would also help the planet. Just as your body always wants to heal, plants want to grow and the environment continually adapts to stresses and strains of the modern world. That is known as resilience. And as you choose to live more intentionally, you will find that you respect sand support yourself, each other and, of course, the world around you.

The American Institute for Learning and Human Development published “The twelve stages of the Human Lifecycle, which they adapted from “The Human Odyssey” by Thomas Armstrong. They make a very important point in their summary: “We ought to take the same attitude toward nurturing the human life cycle as we do toward saving the environment from global warming and industrial pollutants.  For by supporting each stage of the human life cycle, we will help to ensure that all of its members are given care and helped to blossom to their fullest degree.”


So, be aware of the law of cause and effect as you go about your day. Eating fast food is not good for your body’s resilience and all the leftover packaging does not help the environment. Try to make daily choices that sustain your well-being and that of the planet.
