33. Embracing Nuance and the Ability to Change
What the hell does nuance have to do with wellness?!
Extreme dieting or eating whatever you want.
Working out to the extreme, or not working out at all.
Carb cutting, or carb-loading.
Cutting out all technology, or using it for everything.
Here’s the point: a black and white way of thinking isn’t healthy, and it’s not helping our wellness or our well-being in any sense of the word.
That’s where nuance comes in, and why we are discussing the need to embrace nuance in today’s episode. If you’re unfamiliar with what we mean by nuance, you’re in the right place because we are breaking it all down today.
We live in a beautiful world full of choices and more information than ever at our fingertips. Making space for nuance allows us to continue learning, growing, and it keeps us from feeling handcuffed to old ways of thinking with no rationale. Ultimately, embracing nuance gives us space to continue being well, learning, and growing and that’s why it’s so important. Listen today to learn more.
