The opposite is true as well. Too many negative emotions create stress in our mind and body which disrupts this special messaging from happening, and weakens digestion and immunity.
(Another reason why its so important to find calm and peace before eating!)
So no matter what shape your gut or health is in, a little gratitude can make it better because…
Gratitude puts us at ease and so aids digestion!
SO what gets in the way of this simple practice?
I look at authentically religious men and women, and I notice that their gratitude seems to flow effortlessly from them. Why do you think this is?
💗 Note to Self: I am grateful my life is full of looking after those I love 💗
So the solution here is to make time to step out of the hustle to just BE and FEEL.
And if we want to be kind to our gut, start simply with giving thanks before your meals. Just think about how that food came to be on your plate!
All the sun, water and soil required.
The people who grew it, harvested it, shipped it, stocked it.
The materials for the pan you cooked in or the plate you’re eating off of.
There is a lot of effort put into each morsel of food you are about to consume. Let's give thanks to the Creator and everyone involved in getting it to us.
Because our gratefulness sends an "all is well" signal from our brain through the vagus nerve to our digestive tract, and that’s going to help you feel balanced, happy and healthy.
And who wouldn’t be grateful for that?!
Happy Thanksgiving, my American friends! And for rest of us, let’s be grateful that we can relax this weekend 😊
