We Are All Addicts

Don’t worry, we are all addicts. It can be conscious or subconscious addiction. It may be in your awareness, it may not be.

Whether it be phone addiction, app addiction, talking addiction, a person addiction, a drug addiction, an addiction to food or gardening or life itself, it’s all an addiction.

We are all addicts. Don’t worry. You aren’t alone.

Olives

“Olives are small fruits that grow on olive trees (Olea europaea).

They belong to a group of fruit called drupes, or stone fruits, and are related to mangoes, cherries, peaches, almonds, and pistachios.

Olives are very high in vitamin E and other powerful antioxidants. Studies show that they are good for the heart and may protect against osteoporosis and cancer.

The healthy fats in olives are extracted to produce olive oil, one of the key components of the incredibly healthy Mediterranean diet.

Olives are often enjoyed in salads, sandwiches, and tapenades. The average olive weighs about 3–5 grams (1Trusted Source).

Some immature olives are green and turn black when they ripen. Others remain green even when fully ripe.

In the Mediterranean region, 90% of olives are used to make olive oil (2Trusted Source).” – Healthline.com

The Food You Eat Can Have A Dramatic Effect On Your Nervous System

“Did you know the food you eat can have a dramatic effect on the function and balance of your nervous system?

Diets high in sugar, artificial chemicals, and stimulants—including caffeine, soda, and many chemicals found in processed foods—can activate your sympathetic nervous system and trigger the release of stress hormones.

Conversely, a nutrient-dense diet rich in organic vegetables, ethically sourced protein, and healthy fats can help support the parasympathetic nervous system and calm the sympathetic nervous system.” – Email From Dr. Christine Northrup

Binging

Binging on food never gets you anywhere. The pain trying to be distracted from will be there when you’ve stopped eating and will be double fold.

Infinite Expansion

“The reason you’re trying to get more money, more sex, more knowledge, more love, more power, more fame, more pleasure, etc, and you can’t seem to get enough, no matter how much you get, is because deep down what you really want is to be infinite. You want an infinite expansion. It’s as though deep down your consciousness realizes that infinity is the goal. But you’re trying to accomplish the infinite through the finite, which will never work. You are like a fly trapped in a windowpane.

Your entire life has been one stifled infinite expansion.”
