The Psychology of Eating

Getting in Touch with Simplicity 

At Nova Wellness Counseling, I work with helping clients to better understand both the biochemical and emotional factors for natural weight loss. Have you ever asked yourself how you feel after you eat a meal? Do you feel tired or energized? What we eat, when we eat, and how we eat plays a major role with how we digest our food, and how we feel after our meals. By expanding the definition of nourishment, we can gain a broader perspective to explore and embrace new possibilities.

What makes you smile? Laugh? For some, it’s a walk in the park.  Or a bike ride. Maybe it’s gazing up at the sky to see the stars.  For another, it’s going to a new feature film.

What’s the importance of allowing play time to be included in our busy lifestyles?

If it’s been awhile, you may want to consider how happiness lowers your stress levels, helps to increase your immune system, and lowers your risk of disease. Play time also makes life easier.

Simple Daily Pleasures

Doing one pleasurable event a day (or more!) is one of the most powerful antidotes for boredom or dealing with one of those stressful days at your office.

Try this…

  • Create a list of everything that you enjoy.
  • Take note at how you spend your days by asking yourself right now “When could I fit in a little pleasure for myself? Perhaps you could leave the office at lunch time and take a short brisk walk in the sunshine. Or play your favorite music and dance around the kitchen when you are cooking dinner tonight. You might even book yourself a massage for this weekend.

“Let your life lightly dance on the edges of Time like dew on the tip of a leaf”.

Rabindranath Tagore
