I can’t stress enough how important it is to get outside. The outdoors does wonders for your mental and physical health. Lately, I’ve been using my free time to reflect, work on my physical health, and ruminate on plans for the future by hiking with my brother’s dog.
The Paleo diet is ridiculously hard and if you’re gung-ho about losing weight, getting healthy, healing your mitochondria, helping chronic illness, or gaining muscle mass, you might be eating paleo to a tee. When I got sick and learned about the ketogenic diet, I stuck to it like it was some kind of holy text and I am so happy I did. However, after you’ve been on the Paleo diet for awhile, as I learned from my best friend’s parents prior, sometimes every now and then you just want to cheat.
