Why do we do it to ourselves? Why do we find it so much easier to choose the things that are bad for us than those that will benefit us?
Just look at the pic above. On the left of the plate are some scrunchled-up, barely recognisable freeze-dried fruits that I fished out from a breakfast cereal. On the other side are three delightfully juicy, fresh and healthy strawberries.
You’d think the choice would be obvious, right? It should be natural and instinctive to choose what’s really good for us. Instead, too many times we choose the easiest route, and it’s not often the best choice.
Today, let’s choose wisely. Let’s think about what we’re putting into our bodies, our hearts and our minds.
