While this subject is vast in scope, Loricism simplifies it by focusing on two important aspects:
- What are you feeding it?
- How are you using it?
What you nourish your mind, body, and spirit with are important. Is it healthy? The body takes nutrition, the mind takes in information, and the spirit takes in things that lift it. Does the input help or hinder?
Second, how are you using your mind, body, and spirit? How do you exercise your body? Physical activity is important. But also consider how you use the mind.
