Big Holidays like today that revolve around food -for some of you it can be a bit of a stressor. Don’t let it. It doesn’t have to be. Your perceptions about food and your relationship with food is important on days like this. It’s not about watching your weight, wearing your bigger pants, or counting calories, or limiting yourself. Today is a day about Love. It’s a day about Nourishment.
Did you know that when you’re in a good mood and enjoying the experience, your digestion is working to its fullest capacity – ensuring that every morsel and nutrient is assimilated and feeds your health and your body. Stress has the opposite affect – stress has the potential to reduce your digestive capabilities by up to 50% or more. That means that all that good food you are about to enjoy will have no positive affect on your body or your health.
Don’t let people get to you, don’t worry about how your pants fit, and don’t worry about depriving yourself. It’s not cheating – it’s PLEASURE. Enjoy yourself today.
