Wikipedia defines EFA this way — “Essential fatty acids, or EFAs, are fatty acids that humans and other animals must ingest for good health because the body requires them but can’t make them from other food components. The term refers to fatty acids required for biological processes, and not those that only act as fuel.”
Low level EFAs in your system have been linked to depression. So it’s a good idea to be sure you get enough essential fatty acids in your diet each day. You can use capsules, Flax seed granules or liquid, olive oil, and other compounds available at your favorite health store.
Although I certainly agree with Wikipedia, I define EFA this way — ESSENTIAL FUN ATTITUDE!
If you truly want to lead a happy and stress-free life, one in which you cope with the challenges that arise but you enjoy each day on your journey, then you simply MUST grab hold of an EFA and don’t let go.
When you view your life as being a basically fun experience on a wonderful planet, then you will find it much easier to take setbacks and “problems” in stride instead of being overwhelmed, discouraged and hopeless.
Your Essential Fun Attitude will open doors and windows and let in the warm breeze of joy, happiness and contentment.
Don’t believe me? Give it a try today. For 24 hours, make sure your attitude is one of FUN!
Remember the song “A Spoonful of Sugar” in the film “Mary Poppins”?
Mary starts the song by explaining to the two kids:
In ev’ry job that must be done
There is an element of fun
You find the fun and snap!
The job’s a game.
She goes on to sing that a spoonful of sugar makes the medicine go down.
As adults, the “medicine” we have to take is comprised of things like paying bills, facing an illness or death of a loved one, paying taxes when your bank account is already far too lean, coping with a troubled child, trying to get ahead in your career and save for the future — what’s on your list? Everybody has a long list of things that can be viewed as problems, or that can be seen as lessons to learn to advance the evolution of your soul. But no matter what is going on in your life, I promise you that virtual spoonful of sugar will help sweeten each day.
What is your Essential Fun Attitude going to be?
