It is easy to stop taking care of yourself. We are busy with jobs, sit in traffic, spend hours watching television, and constantly stare at our phones. The macrobiotic lifestyle is about remembering to take time for our health. Macrobiotic lifestyle highlights learning to cook macrobiotic foods, eating slower and at regular times, discovering fresh foods, and reconnecting with family and friends.

It takes conscious effort to maintain health and balance in an unhealthy society, home, or work environment. Denny & Susan Waxman, as well as the Strengthening Health institute are always endeavoring to modernize and update the effectiveness of the practice. Remember, people who have an up-to-date macrobiotic practice tend to get much better results with far greater enjoyment! In this article, we will discuss health questions you should ask yourself and support programs to help you start a macrobiotic lifestyle or to refresh and renew your macrobiotic practice.
