Developing Self-Control Through The Wonders of Intermittent Fasting

I remember staring at my watch hoping that I could eat now. Had it been 16 hours yet? I imagined my stomach passive-aggressively pretending to digest knowing full well it was empty. I thought I couldn’t wait, but I could. I had waited yesterday and I was fine, I could wait today.

When I First Met Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting, IF, first came into my life while I was catching up with a Personal Trainer friend. It was about 10 am and we’d met for coffee, but I was feeling peckish. I asked him if he wanted to order food and he responded by looking down at his watch before politely declining.

Without much of a prompt, he spilt the good news of IF like a true evangelist. He took me on a journey through time, casting our minds back to a simpler generation of hunter and gatherers. Passionately, he explained to me that the ‘three-meal day’ simply isn’t practical and I was simply conditioned to think that I needed it. I could spend all morning hunting and gathering and still not waste away due to starvation, he told me.

The shortest & simplest meditation

You don’t have to get fancy with your meditation, short or long. In fact, the easiest and shortest meditation I know is often the most effective for any reason you might want to meditate.

Simply sit, stand or lie in a comfortable position and close your eyes. Take in a deep breath, inhaling slowly and all the way into your belly. Hold your breath for a moment, then exhale slowly. Repeat for however long you like.

Short or long, meditation has the power to change your mood, your day, and even your life. If you’ve never tried a short meditation, why not do it today? You might be amazed at what happens.
