Cravings…

Every time if you have a craving and if you are getting it fulfilled, you are actually letting your mind breathe through your mind via your heart to stomach. So much air and relaxation of mind and senses comes when you give attention to cravings.
Cravings are driven by brain’s need for reward-not body’s need for food. It is important to realize that craving is NOT the same as hunger. Its not your body calling for energy, its your mind calling for something that releases lots of dopamine in the reward system.

People say cravings are harmful. Yeah they are if you are ignoring them. However if you have a craving and you are hungry that makes it much, much worse.

Restrictions are never appreciated even if we do with a half hearted consent. A little small corner of our heart keep sinking saying – “NAAH!! I was limitless why am I doing this”. Dietery restrictions definitely make cravings worse. But does this means we should give into food cravings? Well that probably depends on your level of control once you begin eating. If you have a choclate craving and you are able satisfy it with few choclate kisses or may be snicker bar – “GO FOR IT”.
But if you are someone whose cravings get out of control (like you end up eating a full bag of choclates or whole choclate cookie box) then it becomes more complicated. If this is the category you fit in then you need to cut down on portions of your desired food in your hand like if you are craving for a cake then buy a pastry instead or may be icecream cravings, then treat yourself wth a scoop of your favourite instead of a whole gallon of it.

Every craving has a story. Yes it may increase your calorie intake as per your decided limits but then it will release your mind and will get you a beautiful sleep that will finally give you a sound body and will boost your metabolism, finally leading u to put less effort for a further burning calorie process.

So how you are letting these cravings shape you, your body & your skin the way you want.
So if you have a craving – kill it! Once it is fulfilled you will be relaxed and you will stop trying alternatives, which were just giving you the feeling of adjustment. The only way you can get rid off from your food thoughts is to follow and listen to them. You will feel more motivated and put a real true effort on your workout which you were doing before half heartedly or just for the heck of doing it. When you eat you feel energetic and happy. People say it’s a guilt, but it’s a motivation for the next beautiful guilt free food story. On the contrary escaping of it would only result in low motivation resulting in a half hearted workout and a hell of pressure and complaints from your thoughts – “How long will I have to sacrifice, why can’t I eat like them, damn they eat hell, but where does that go & more, more cribbing”. So time now to beat the body’s mind through our mind.

Nothing can bring you peace but you yourself only can…

It’s been long, I have actually published anything of my own…credits…our so called work from home culture, online school and the best the frustration of sticking to our homes, not only coz we are taking precautions but coz we don’t have time for ourself…

Few reads are so relatable and inspiring that I just wish I could share it with everyone… So here is one more…copy and pasted but

RELATABLE…

A WORTHY READ

My mom did not sleep. She felt exhausted. She was irritable, grumpy, and bitter. She was always sick until one day, suddenly, she changed.

One day my dad said to her:

  • I’ve been looking for a job for three months and I haven’t found anything, I’m going to have a few beers with friends.

My mom replied:

  • It’s okay.

My brother said to her:

  • Mom, I’m doing poorly in all subjects at the University.

My mom replied:

  • Okay, you will recover, and if you don’t, well, you repeat the semester, but you pay the tuition.

My sister said to her:

  • Mom, I smashed the car.

My mom replied:

  • Okay daughter, take it to the car shop & find how to pay and while they fix it, get around by bus or subway.

Her daughter-in-law said to her:

  • Mother-in-law, I came to spend a few months with you.

My mom replied:

  • Okay, settle in the living room couch and look for some blankets in the closet.

All of us gathered worried to see these reactions coming from Mom.

We suspected that she had gone to the doctor and that she was prescribed some pills called “I don’t give a damn”… Perhaps she was overdosing on these!

We then proposed to do an “intervention” with my mother to remove her from any possible addiction she had towards some anti-tantrum medication.

But then – she gathered us around her and my mom explained:

“It took me a long time to realize that each person is responsible for their life. It took me years to discover that my anguish, anxiety, my depression, my courage, my insomnia & my stress, does not solve your problems but aggravates mine.

I am not responsible for the actions of anyone & it’s not my job to provide happiness but I am responsible for the reactions I express to that.

Therefore, I came to the conclusion that my duty to myself is to remain calm and let each one of you solve what corresponds to you.

I have taken courses in yoga, meditation, miracles, human development, mental hygiene, vibration and neurolinguistic programming and in all of them, I found a common denominator in them all…

I can only control myself, you have all the necessary resources to solve your own problems despite how hard they may be. My job is to pray for you, love on you, encourage you but it’s up to YOU to solve them & find your happiness.

I can only give you my advice if you ask me & it depends on you to follow it or not. There are consequences, good or bad, to your decisions and YOU have to live them.

So from now on, I cease to be the receptacle of your responsibilities, the sack of your guilt, the laundress of your remorse, the advocate of your faults, the wall of your lamentations, the depositary of your duties, who should solve your problems or spare a tire every time to fulfill your responsibilities.

From now on, I declare all independent and self-sufficient adults.

Everyone at my mom’s house was speechless.

From that day on, the family began to function better because everyone in the house knew exactly what it is that they needed to do.

For some of us this is hard because we’ve grown up being the caregivers feeling responsible for others. As moms & wives we are fixers off all things. We never want our loved ones to go through difficult things or to struggle. We want everyone to be happy.

But, the sooner we take that responsibility off of our shoulders & on to each loved one, the better we are preparing them to be responsible.

We are not here on earth to be everything to everyone. Stop putting that pressure on yourself.

I personally did not write this. I came upon it, found it to be powerful and in this crazy time thought it would be a good “read” to share ❤️…

This is who I am!

Not ‘coz I am a woman, I respect woman, I respect the fact that I am here coz of one.

Scent of a WOMAN!

This is one of the best posts I’ve read about woman… Please read it completely… it’s worth it…

WOMAN. . . . . . . . .

When God created woman he was working late on the 6th day…….

An angel came by and asked.” Why spend so much time on her?”

The lord answered. “Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?”

●She must function on all kinds of situations.
●She must be able to embrace several kids at the same time.
●Have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart.
●She must do all this with only two hands.
●She cures herself when sick and can work 18 hours a day.

THE ANGEL was impressed” Just two hands…..impossible!

And this is the standard model?”

The Angel came closer and touched the woman.
“But you have made her so soft, Lord”.
“She is soft”, said the Lord,
“But I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome”

“Can she think?” The Angel asked…
The Lord answered. “Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate”.

The Angel touched her cheeks….
“Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! You have put too many burdens on her”.
“She is not leaking…it is a tear”. The Lord corrected the Angel…

“What’s it for?” Asked the Angel….. .
The Lord said. “Tears are her way of expressing her grief, her doubts, her love, her loneliness, her suffering and her pride.”…

This made a big impression on the Angel,
“Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything.
A woman is indeed marvellous”

Lord said .”Indeed she is.
■She has strength that amazes a man.
■She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
■She holds happiness, love and opinions.
■She smiles when she feels like screaming.
■She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
■She fights for what she believes in.
■Her love is unconditional.
■Her heart is broken when a next-of-kin or a friend dies but she finds strength to get on with life”

The Angel asked: So she is a perfect being?
The lord replied: No. She has just one drawback.
“She often forgets what she is worth”.

Send it to all the women u respect ….👍
And to all men who respect woman 👍👍

Being a woman is priceless💃💃

Pass this to every woman in your contact to make her feel proud of herself.

🙏🙏 I respect women🙏🙏

You just need an eye … Never say never

It’s never too late to be what you wanted to be.

It’s never too late to realize and begin.

It’s never too late to change.

Its never too late to stop dreaming.

It’s never too late to start living.

You can never go back in time and change things but you can always give things a fresh start for a better ending.

Going through my Social account, read these beautiful lines that impressed me then and even now…

सर झुकाने से नमाज़ें अदा नहीं होती…!!!
दिल झुकाना पड़ता है इबादत के लिए…!

पहले मैं होशियार था,
इसलिए दुनिया बदलने चला था,
आज मैं समझदार हूँ,
इसलिए खुद को बदल रहा हूँ।

बैठ जाता हूं मिट्टी पे अक्सर…
क्योंकि मुझे अपनी औकात अच्छी लगती है..

मैंने समंदर से सीखा है जीने का सलीक़ा,
चुपचाप से बहना और अपनी मौज में रहना ।

ऐसा नहीं है कि मुझमें कोई ऐब नहीं है पर सच कहता हूँ मुझमे कोई फरेब नहीं है

जल जाते हैं मेरे अंदाज़ से मेरे दुश्मन क्यूंकि एक मुद्दत से मैंने
न मोहब्बत बदली और न दोस्त बदले .!!..

Wonderful…

Essential life saving supplement- Smile

When things are difficult, smile by faith. Don’t wait until you feel better.”
We all understand the severity of the current situation I feel, but apart from this Corona our mental well being is equally important.
I really urge please believe in God, whatever happens… Happens for a reason… Don’t let your faith fade all of a sudden so easily. Take care, stay healthy, a healthy mind is the biggest life saving supplement.
Don’t ignore but let’s not make it the only mission of our life, already cutting down to things we like have made us all so dull, so please try n smile. It’s not a regular flu or virus that will spread like that… It will only if we come in contact with an infected person. So take care of your surroundings, if anyone is having certain travel history plz don’t hide…or if your society or you know somrone, make efforts of finding that, trust me, we can prevent the spread, forwarding corona msg is just becoming a saddening and depressing social trend. Please avoid

You may get her the best or the most expensive diamond yeah coz she says diamonds are her best friends but deep in the heart there is just one little wish every woman keeps… Though she put it at stake all the time for her loved ones but that’s not what she ever wanted to do.
Respect
This seven letter world mean world to her and no diamond can match the beauty of this feeling.
Stay gorgeous inside n out!
