Show Notes

Having a curious mindset is of major importance in all areas of life, and is especially crucial in the area of health and wellbeing. If you find yourself shutting down anyone who challenges your thinking around health and diet, you may be shutting down opportunities to learn and grow, and prolonging your health struggles.

In this podcast I talk about the difference between having a curious mindset and a conclusive mindset:

– Looking at the world around you with open eyes vs shutting off anything that goes against what you “know”

– Learning to look at health as principles to apply to your unique situation, rather than a set of black & white rules

– How curiosity helps us grow, and how our health can flourish when we consider the principles of a traditional, whole food diet rather than relying on ‘diet rules and regulations’ and a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

I also discuss the question, “Is this food/product/supplement good for me?” Learn to work out the answer to this question for yourself, simply by asking yourself some questions relating to a traditional, “whole food” way of thinking. (See resources below for the list of questions I mention in the video.)
