I was reading an article that reported almost 50% of people gained weight during the pandemic. The survey stated there were many factors including people being more sedentary in nature and stress: financial, emotional, physical, mental, health, etc.
I fell into the 50% that gained weight which is why I'm doing to do a 28 day cleanse.
Why you eat is more important than what you eat
The reasons behind why you are eating will determine what you eat.
Have you ever examined what triggers you to eat?
Some questions to ask yourself:
Your reactions will tell you why you are really eating. If you are not attached to something emotionally, it would be easy to put off your meal for an hour. If someone took your meal away, and you want to bite their head off, there's probably an emotional component.
When it comes to stress and life, we often take ourselves too seriously.
An incident happened a few weeks ago where a family member said something that upset me. This one thought that one person said caused me to change my state for a few hours.
Of all the thoughts that my mind has in a day, I chose to focus on this one.
So, how did I stop my mind?
I took a bigger view on things. This was only one thought. One out of the many that I have in a minute, hour, or day. It would be like comparing one snowflake on the car windshield to the rest. Such a small thing.
If I expand out further, I have this one thought and there are the thoughts of the people in my family, neighbourhood, city, province, country, world, solar system, galaxy...the entire cosmos.
When I compare my one thought to that of the entire cosmos, I have to laugh at my mind, move on and enjoy the rest of my day.
