The fasting experience
The fasting day started great and continued by few moments were I really wanted to chew on something! especially after a phone call that had unexpected disappointing news. I noticed that my urge to eat increased after the emotional trigger happened. So I put into practice few breathing techniques to centre myself, it took about 3 minutes to get over the urge. Then, I could focus more in something creative and positive like finishing my new workshop presentation.
Science has proven when we do something we are not used to doing, when we stop any habit (including eating for a day), it creates a change in our nervous system, a new neuro pathway has to be created and new sensations in the body are experienced. After, a new behaviour has a chance to emerge, therefore, new ideas and experiences follow.
I am passionate about behaviour change, because is the precursor of changing reality (your reality). The more we do different things, we get a chance to experience different results. For that, we need a strong mind and continuous change of our usual patterns and neuropaths.
I invite you to try new things whenever you get a chance, get yourself out of your comfort zone.
From eating something different for 90 days, taking new routes to work, try a new sport, drink water instead of any other beverage for a while... anything!
I will continue with 1 day a week fasting and tomorrow I will start my day with an ocean swim at 5.15am every day until Christmas, I managed to convince my husband to join me and I'm so excited we can do this together! I can't wait to start. (please note: I find very hard to get in the cold water without a wetsuit even in summer time and specially in the mornings... so discomfort: here I come!
Enjoy life! Evolve into your magnificent self
