Take Care of Your Animal

This video blog post is inspired by an interview with Elizabeth Gilbert and my friend Jonathan Fields on his podcast The Good Life Project. Elizabeth talks about the importance of taking care of her "animal" (aka her physical body) so that her "supercomputer" (aka soul/spirit/creative life force) can function at the highest level.

I love this simple, yet powerful distinction. If we can take good care of ourselves on a basic, physical level, not only are we healthier, but we become more open, receptive, creative, and powerful.

How are you doing taking care of your animal? What makes this challenging for you? What works best for you? Feel free to share your thoughts, insights, or any questions you have on my blog.
