How To Feed Our Soul

As we celebrate World Health Day today, it’s time to turn our attention to food - not the kind we usually see on our plate but rather the kind of "food" that feeds our souls and keeps us emotionally healthy.

Some people call this primary food, while the food we eat is called secondary food.

It is said that primary food is even more important than the food you eat. So to give you an idea of how we can feed ourselves with primary food, we’ve rounded up some health and wellness tips or rituals based on different traditions from around the world.  

    1. Denmark’s Hygge. The term connotes warm, cozy feelings of comfort, contentment and overall wellness. It involves staying at home with candles and warm blankets, surrounded by good friends and good food. It is about creating the proper atmosphere and experience rather than about owning things.

    2. Spanish Siesta. This is the Spaniard’s version of an afternoon nap. It’s a great way to reboot your body, lower stress levels, improve alertness and help cardiovascular functions. It doesn’t have to be a long nap. 15 minutes is enough to recharge you for the rest of the day.

    3. Italy’s Aperitivo. This popular ritual in Italy consists of a small drink like a glass of wine, and a snack that people indulge in after work and before dinner. Doing it puts a period to your day and allows you to relax and unwind before the evening sets in.

    4. Turkish Hammams. These famous Turkish public baths help one relax, while deep cleansing the internal organs through sweating. The hot baths or steam rooms also improve several bodily functions like detoxification, circulation, digestion, and even skin health.

    5. Argentina’s Tomando Maté. This bonding ritual has been around for centuries. Tomando Maté literally means “drinking mate”. So the tradition revolves around community and hospitality, with family and friends passing around a gourd of healthy Yerba Maté tea.


All these rituals and traditions give us a sense of goodwill and well-being. They are like little pockets of happiness that make us feel good about ourselves and the world.

But just because we are healthy emotionally doesn’t mean we should neglect our physical health.

Our bodily parts also need to be preserved and nourished.

The right food, exercise, supplements, like for our skin, and an overall healthy lifestyle should also be celebrated, not just during World Health Day, but all throughout the year.
