Practice slowing down or stopping, and utilize the following exercises to help you eat healthier, sleep better and become more in tune with your body.
Learning to develop good eating habits while also figuring out how certain foods affect you is another important aspect of tuning into your intuition. Try this eating exercise to see how some families of food can affect you and your body.
Choose a food type you probably should not be eating, such as foods with high sugar, fat, or starch content, and go without this food type for as many days or weeks as you can. Note any changes in your thoughts, behavior or sense of wellness. Then slowly reintroduce the food type, and ask your body to let you know if it is a food that should be cut from your diet permanently—your body will definitely let you know. If it is a food type you should avoid altogether, try to use this information to intuitively choose foods that are better for your being.
This exercise also helps you become aware of any food allergies. These are important to know about, as many people have them. Common food allergies include wheat products, dairy and certain nuts, as well as an array of others. Such allergies can often be discovered through this simple exercise.
