Welcome to the Daily Dose of Self Love. This series will be about self love, self care, self esteem and self worth. Basically everything related with SELF. My aim with this series is to give you a daily boost of self love and self care. We all get busy with our lives and sometimes it leaves us less or no time to take time for ourselves, be with ourselves, wash off all the negativity that we accumulated during the day with self love, meditation, etc. The daily boost will be in an easy to understand and more importantly something which is relatable. So Welcome!!
Self Love Practice Tip #53
Today we will continue to talk about intuitive eating. The society and diet culture has complicated food so much that sometimes we don’t even want to eat, or feel food should not be an important component of our lives. It is frustrating. When certain foods which are labelled bad and we eat them, we start feeling bad or feel guilty about ourselves. So if I am craving pizza and I eat it (not even overeat it) I would feel guilty. That’s where intuitive eating comes handy. Intuitive eating is not labelling food at all. Initially when you start eating intuitively, because of older thought patterns, that little voice will tell you to not eat certain things. Recognise these as old patterns and not hold it against intuitive eating. For some people even feeling hungry makes them feel stressed out because then it’s time to go with war with yourself and dieting equals restricting. When you restrict certain foods your body naturally wants more of these foods you are depriving it off. So you see this vicious cycle now? Understanding and realising is the first step.
