Healthy Practices: Eating, Thinking, and Living Papa Juan through Beatriz Jimpson

This is Papa Juan, and we are present with you through all your life and death cycles, through your joys and trials, through your wars and times of peace, and through your travels and expansions. You are a loved and cherished species. You are unique to the universe and bring an inimitable and exciting view of life to all of us that observe you.

Twenty-One Days

We want to share with you some concepts about health that many of you may already know but that merits reminding. Do not get down on yourself if you are not following the concepts that you know would be better for you than what you are following now. Just take it in stride and continue focusing on what is better for you with joy and gratefulness. A large part of the problem for those of you who do not follow good health practices is that you feel bad about yourself and then create a negative environment around the concepts, which then can lead to irritation when you do want to change.

Just remember, it takes twenty-one of your days to begin or end a habit, whether it is good or bad. Addictions take twenty-one days to create or break, but of course, there is the emotional aspect of this topic as well that might be a bit trickier to overcome. The idea is that you can gauge your habits by the number of days you take to create or break them. You can encourage yourself to continue on the path that is best for you by counting down the days. As you get closer to the twenty-first day, it gets easier.
