To become more intuitive, one of the first steps is to start listening to your body. By focusing on things such as exercise, rest and healthy eating, you can begin to transform your intuition and lifestyle.
Exercise. Being intuitive requires energy and alertness. Because exercise elevates your circulation, strengthens your body and reduces tension, you should do it at least three times a week to heighten your level of intuitive awareness.
Rest. Listen to your body if it is tired, and be willing to take short naps or breaks when necessary during the day. Restoring the body’s state of alertness through relaxation and sleep allows it to stay healthy and energetic. Make a conscious decision to listen to your body’s needs.
Eat healthy. Food is your body’s fuel, so it is important to watch what you eat. Many people make sure their children and pets eat well, and yet do not adhere to a healthy diet themselves, especially when busy. However, it is very important to have the proper nourishment to help enhance the body’s intuitive sensitivity.
Pay attention. Be wary of numbing your mind and body. Avoid getting caught up in television, too much work or any activity that seems to dull your brain. Also, eliminating noise can do wonders for the mind, not to mention helping to reduce the constant chatter that hinders sleep for many individuals. Learn to cherish alone and quiet time.
