HISFarmWhat is my understanding of nutrition?

When most of us read or talk about nutrition, we just talk about our food diet. But nurturing, according to the online Merrium-Webster dictionary shares this definition of nurture:

– Training, upbringing

– Something that nourishes

– The sum of the environmental factors influencing the behavior and traits expressed by an organism

– Help (something or someone) to grow, develop, or succeed

Chris, having a balanced life is indeed important for a happiness to thrive. True, things happen in life to upset that balance but I have known many people that don't let the uncontrollable things in life determine their emotional status. As you have stated we, as humans, are made up of body, soul, and mind. The mind I would consider the spirit of life. Each needs to be nurtured in its own way. To starve one area of life is asking for physical, emotional or spiritual trouble. All three areas of life are so intertwined that what happens to one will have an effect on the others. Great post about nurturing. ***** Have a great nurturing day.
