Since April is Stress Awareness Month we thought some remarks on the subject of stress would be appropriate.
Nature has given us amazing brains, but we were only alloted one per person. This means we can’t really multitask.
Most people would probably agree that the speed of today’s “living” has something to do with the stresses most of us experience in our working lives and too often bring home with us.
How can we successfully navigate this maze of opposing views in getting along in our daily lives. Is the answer more lawyers, PR firms and lobbyists? Hopefully, there’s a less adversarial way.
Our role in the natural foods industry is to supplement where needed and then get out of the way and let nature take its well-designed course. Big Food and biotech companies don’t see things this way and so oppose GMO labeling.
The food buying public is moving in a “rock and roll” direction: wanting more choice and actual nutrition instead of chemical ingredients. Big Food is still stuck in the “big band” era of more chemicals and industrialization.
What happens when we shop for produce? What’s our expectation? If a fruit or vegetable looks good, do we accept the item as normal? If we’ve ceased envisioning ideals and simply—albeit reluctantly—accept dreary as normal, aren’t we shortchanging ourselves?
