Insights for a Life in Balance:
A Daily Dose of Quotes
By Quinn Akira Takei
“Don’t ever diminish the power of words. Words move hearts and hearts move limbs.”
The words of another can open our hearts, expand our minds, and shift our perceptions. The power of words can cause us to initiate action and help us maintain momentum. The quotes throughout this book are some of the most all-time thought-provoking and illuminating words of wisdom related to comprehensive health; physical, mental, and spiritual. This daily dose of quotes will offer you regular insights into creating and maintaining a healthy life in balance.
As a holistic health practitioner, it is my mission to support people in becoming happier and healthier with natural medicine. I have developed an integrative approach to health care blending Eastern, Western, holistic and functional medicine perspectives with the information, products, tools, and support that clients need to address the root cause of ailments.
Twenty years of practice and tens of thousands of patient visits have taught me that there are basically 3.5 major factors that significantly influence your current state of health. The 3.5 factors are;
1) What you eat
2) How you move
3) What you think about
3.5) How you sleep (I say “3.5” because the most significant factor in how you sleep is #3, what you think about.)
Yes, at least 1/3 of your current state of health is what you think about. It is what goes on in your mind. It is your relationship with yourself. It is what you believe. It is your perceptions. It is not only what you think about, but also how you think. The power and influence of your thoughts have been completely underestimated, disregarded, discredited, and blatantly ignored in conventional medicine. Nevertheless, the fact remains, you can change your world by changing your thoughts.
The power of our thoughts, which impacts so much of our lives, has fueled my desire to create this book. Sometimes the words of another can open our hearts, expand our minds, shift our perceptions, and remind us of the wisdom that we already knew and just momentarily forgot.
The quotes throughout this book are some of the most thought-provoking and illuminating quotes I have found related to mental and physical health. Each of these quotes offers insights for a life in balance. I invite you to read one quote each day. Ask yourself, “How does this pertain to me?” Think about it throughout your day. Allow the words to resonate within your being. Perhaps these words will open your heart and expand your mind. Perhaps these words will remind you of the wisdom that you already knew and just momentarily forgot. Perhaps a daily dose of quotes may offer you insights and support in creating a life in balance.
