  1. Why is it that what is good is so often allowed to slip. I get too "busy" to do what I should even though I know that I could be more effective if I do what helps my body. Thanks for the reminder.

    1. I think it is human nature to do what is not right. ;-) I also spend too much time, money and energy doing things that are harmful to my body.
