Nourishing our bodies with healthy foods It is rich in vitamins that provide our body with the high-quality fuel it needs to function properly. We know that our brain and stomach are connected by the vagus nerve. This connection, body and mind, is clearly perceived through our breathing. “So, for our brain to function properly, it needs the stomach to process nutritious foods, because if we give it low-quality food, it will suffer.”

Action will be the second pillar. There is an ancient Vedic saying that confirms this Flexibility is the key to eternity. Flexibility of body and mind, because as we get older, we become stiffer, both in our muscles and in our thoughts. That's why you have to move. By this, I don't mean that you have to practice a specific routine, like CrossFit or Pilates, but simply get moving. If we move, the energy will flow.”

Third: It is essential at these times: Stress control. “The entire planet is stressed and killing us. In that regard, I have A very revealing tale of Deepak Chopra with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who was for a time the Beatles' spiritual guru.. When they met, I think it was in New York, Mahesh Yogi approached Chopra to ask if he could clarify the word he kept hearing around him that day. The word was stress. When Chopra explained this to him, the teacher replied: “Ah! Stress is what I call it.” Resistance to existence. The only way to overcome it is to flow. In other words, as Bruce Lee suggested, we are water and flow. Let's stop resisting Which we cannot change.”
