Be Thankful for Your Cravings
We can be thankful for our cravings.
Learning to listen to our body is essential. Cravings are the body’s way of sending us messages to maintain balance. The longer we ignore these messages, the stronger the backlash can be. Yet, most people view cravings as a weakness, something to be controlled through austerity and discipline.
The lesson here is to look for the foods, deficits and behaviors in your life that are the underlying causes of your cravings.
So whenever your body is craving something, pause for a moment and wonder, "What’s really going on here?" When you find yourself impulsively reaching for some food, please take a moment to slow down, breathe and reevaluate the situation and consider what your heart and soul are really asking for.
