Recently I had the opportunity to visit a holistic health convention where a lot of people gathered in order to discuss and share the benefits of holistic health.
Most of it was in regards to how holistic health efforts can help in the treatment of cancer, and how it can help people in general to live healthier lives.
Of course they discussed how holistic health efforts can be made on top of the efforts made with modern medicine.
I actually learned quite a bit from the convention—not only did I attend the talks, but they had pop up counters also which were ran by people who were happy to provide leaflets and pamphlets.
Of course there were also some people selling some of the holistic stuff—I was eager to try a few things of theirs, I’ll admit as much.
So that all said, I’d like to share with you the key experiences that made the holistic health convention entirely too memorable for me.
Not exactly all related to holistic health (come on now, I’ve got to share those things with you in other posts where I can get specific—you and the topics deserve that much), but basically what I’ve gone through pretty much. I’ve actually got quite a few funny stories.
Losing My Hotel Room Key
Yes… this convention I actually managed to lose my hotel room key.
I wasn’t staying in one of those fancy hotels with key cards, I decided to stay in an older hotel because it was much closer by.
And of course, go figure, I lost the keys… It wouldn’t even be a big deal, really, since they had a spare and I could just pay for a fee, but I’m not the type of person to lose things.
Especially not important things like my hotel room key!
Eating Healthy Food
I normally eat clean as it is, but during the convention they were a few people at their pop up booths selling clean food that they made themselves—as snacks or as meals.
My favorite was the raw chocolate brownies…who knew those could taste so amazing?
I learned a lot about the different kinds of diets (or lifestyles) that you could have. Vegetarian, vegan, paleo, raw… I think I’ll remain eating as I do, but just go clean (meaning no processed food).
I urge you to do the same. You’ll really feel the difference!
The Importance of Exercising
I was visiting a health convention. I should have expected the daily exercise!
It wasn’t mandatory, but it was really quite fun. I joined in on a few of them.
There were yoga classes, and a few tai chi and flow classes… I quite enjoyed them.
They always made me feel so relaxed afterwards.
I commend those who decided to do the daily morning jog, but it just isn’t my thing—I have bad knees. I wish I could run though.
All in all I can definitely say that I really enjoyed this convention and I look forward to the next.
I learned a lot of things on top of what I already know, and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
I think though that it’ll all be in separate posts because I’ll be able to discuss things better.
You’ll just have to wait for them to come out. See you around!
