When we are in consult or just as we go about our every day, we are asked if things are “good” or “bad”… questions like, “Are tea bags really bad”? (most are), “Is Instagram good for business?” (it can be!), “Can sit-ups reduce stress?” (if you do them properly), or we are challenged with statements like “Organic doesn’t mean it’s good for you!” (we agree!).
There are so many factors to consider before we decide what might be good or bad, right or wrong … both objectively and subjectively. Labelling is dangerous. Being curious is enlightening. To have connection to what we are eating or buying, what we are doing, or who we are spending our time with, we need to consciously be aware of the impact of our choices.
We are always up for a discussion, debate, and exploration. That’s how we learn around here, too! It can be overwhelming, it can take longer, but it’s absolutely worth it … both the process AND the result.
Our “Lessons in Empathy Economics” that we publish every Monday in The Wellness Intelligence Collective (TWIC), were born from our experiences, your questions and challenges, and our research (so, thank you). We have been sharing them for almost a decade now and we try to keep the details simple, honest, and compelling, and we hope that what we share helps you as you set out to make the best (or least worst) decisions for yourself when it comes to what you put your energy, time, and money towards.
