Road map to stay on track
Give a rest to your willpower
Clocks are not human invention, there are an integral part of all form of life on earth. Circadian rhythms are governed by your hypothalamus in the brain but are also present in your digestive and endocrine organs such as your liver or your adrenal glands.
Modern lifestyle heavily disturbs this sensible natural rhythmic activity mainly with jet lags, exposure to prolonged hours of artificial light and… erratic eating patterns. Disrupting your natural body rhythmic activity leaves your body and your mind disturbed,de-synchronized and create dissonance with your true needs.
Disturbed circadian rhythms create issues with the way you process foods and many other metabolic functions, it alters your digestion, affects your sleep, and prevent you to manage your weight.
When you come back close to your natural rhythms, you feel more balanced, in harmony and congruent with what your body requires for optimum health and wellness.
Small steps can lead to incredible shifts toward success. To stay in sync with your natural rhythms the key is to create new habits in your shopping, food preparation & eating patterns, to review your current routine with food.
Road Map to Stay on Track, Release Time for Yourself & Relieve your Willpower
PLAN – If you fail to plan, you plan to fail
How long do you spend shopping, wandering around, asking yourself what you could eat tonight and the day after? How would that be to come back to 15-20 min weekly shopping, with the reassurance to get everything to nourish yourself and your family for the week? The key here is to sit, write down your meal plan, complete your shopping list and then shop and cook accordingly.
PREP– Your prepared food become your convenient food
The food you prepare in advance become your convenient food, that serves your health the best. The key here is to dedicate some specific time to preparing meals. Making the family involved is the best way to succeed and can happen only if you have planned. Ask yourself where you can free 30 minute a day to prepare your meals.
Eating freshly prepared foods is a must. However, we live a society that places demands on ourselves with working schedules, family commitments, social life… so we have choices to make. In your planning, dedicate some time to cook foods in batches that you freeze in individual portions.
PRAC – Plan, prepare and…. follow the plan
Once you have planned, follow the plan and form new habits. Every day, stick to your meal plan, and prepare for the following day.
If you feel on the edge of falling off the wagon, come back to your emergency plan: join the Light Your Feminine Spark group on Facebook, delegate some cooking tasks to other members of the family, deep breathe for 5 minutes, or invoke a moment of gratitude
