Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

    Insufficiency of nutrients as essential fatty acids, vitamins, proteins,… if we haven´t these nutrients on our bodies affect our health in a negative mood, our mental health and physical health. Also, the industries of food use ingredients that are bad for the health because this ingredients are cheaper than other ingredients healthier; for example: palm oil, coconut oil, E-120,….
