If you follow me on Instagram, you probably read a condensed version of this 20 Things NOT Necessary to Being Healthy post in my feed this past week. The response from you all, was absolutely incredible, so many "amens" and "preaches", loads of "thank you I've been feeling this way too" and "I really needed to hear that". I received countless private messages and emails and so many of you shared my sentiments with your own community – first of all THANK YOU! I am happy to know that my thoughts resonated and also that I am not alone. It's so easy to get caught up in it all. I also felt, given the response, this rant deserved a post of it's own, so it would have the opportunity to live on more permanently and hopefully inspire even more folks, to feel free of this thought process and empowered to shift the focus.
I've recently been coming to the realization that the world of health and wellness, at certain times, can feel a bit like a "cool kids club". With our social feeds abundantly filled with "wellness expert"s touting everything from a detox tea that is the answer to your weight loss woes, to diets that will evidently cure all or oils, powders and mushrooms that will make you better, smarter, prettier, more energized and ageless. It's hitting a tipping point and it's all so wildly confusing and overwhelming.
Beyond that, having the opportunity every week here in my own community to feed the most humble of meals to the underserved, to those without homes and those without the means, many times, to get themselves a meal of any kind – my focus has really shifted to making health as accessible and inclusive as possible.

NOT a SINGLE ONE of these Things are NECESSARY to Living Well and Being Healthy:
