Our bodies are unique, and the way one person’s body heals might not necessarily work for you. Which begs the question, how much control do you have on your wellness? Are you the type that follows other people’s practices without analyzing whether they can work for you? According to Dr. Tommy, the more control we have over our wellness, the better outcomes we can expect. However, this does not mean you should stop taking those wellness classes or cancel all coaching subscriptions; what that means is that you should take control of all your wellness plans. Because a wellness expert can’t fix you, the only thing he/she will do is show you how to fix yourself. Thus, it’s up to you to decide how you’ll go about fixing yourself.

With AI taking over almost every aspect of our lives, most people are worried that food with that human touch will soon become scarce. However, that shouldn’t be the case since you can always make your own food from scratch. But, what if you don’t have time to prepare your own food? Well, you can always start slow and create a day a week to prepare your own food. In three months, you’ll not only have increased the number of days you cook your own food but would have become better at it too. The thing to note here is that you need to make it simple; don’t try and overcomplicate it. Just create something that works for you. 

When seeking specialist help, it always pays to understand the hints your body is giving you. These signs come as symptoms that give insights into what might be ailing you. The first thing you need to acknowledge is that something is wrong, and whatever it is that you’ve been doing is not working. Still, healing comes from your mindset. Your willingness to have your body fixed will prompt your body to take up action and commence the healing process. After all, the body can self-heal, and self regenerate.
