Getting my body back - Day 46
So much has been said about food; what you should eat, what you shouldn't eat, how much of what you should and shouldn't eat. Sometimes it makes you feel like saying, "Would you make up your mind, already!"
The purpose of food
Food was intended, from the beginning of time and still is, the source of our nutritional sustenance. You don't have to be told that if you don't eat what will happen to you. That's pretty obvious.
Visualization and food
Because thought and visualization are such powerful tools of manifestation to attain what it is you want to achieve, why not use them as you're eating. Consider this:
Instead of being distracted while eating and eating only because it's natural when you're hungry, try slowing down and as they say, "Smell the roses." In this case, change your mindset and enjoy the aroma of your food and the taste of it.
Research has shown that the digestion process begins in the mouth. The chewing action combined with your saliva begins breaking down the food and prepares it for further digestion in the stomach.
The mindset about food
As you swallow, think about and imagine the nutrients being extracted from food and is distributed to all of your body parts providing the necessary energy it needs to repair your cells and optimize bodily functions.
See your body using this food to give you the energy you need for your daily activities. See yourself experiencing health and wellness. As you do this, you'd consider making better food choices.
You know that gratitude opens the way for more good to come into your life. As you are eating, remember to say, "Thank you," for your food. Be appreciative of the fact that you have food to eat and that your food supply will always be plentiful.
Fuelling words: Food is good for my health and well-being, and therefore I am thankful for every bite I consume.
Routine: Warm-ups, stretches, aerobics, toning and strength exercises, cool down.
Visualization - keeping focus on my goal; healthy, strong and my ideal body weight and shape.
Deep breathing - relaxes the muscles and sends oxygen to the muscles where exercising alone would not reach.
