Great way to stabilize a day. Great way to be OKby Dr. A. Palatronis
About physical body
Appropriate amount of physical calories are consumed by the organs for the proper work of the entire “physical body”. That means that some amount of calories is essential to maintain the proper work of vital organs.
About emotional body
The same principle could be adapted for an “emotional body”, where specific activities (described in this and ongoing posts) play the role of “calories” for a vital emotional stability.
About the balance between physical and emotional bodies
Keeping physical and emotional bodies properly supplied with essential nutritious and “emotional” calories, contributes to a balance on physical and emotional levels.
As a result, it leads to self-satisfaction, better well-being and not overeating.
Real life and its truth
Well-feeling induces well-eating and one should work on it daily

We all know how to hurry
We all know how to hurry, or how to create a hurricane from a peaceful situation:) One of a common reaction – an attempt to relax and restore inside harmony by eating FOOD. Any diet or meal plan could be crushed in this way and the daily in-a-hurry situations will finally lead to emotional exhaustion.
Daily routine dictates its format
Peaceful mind and positive feelings enhance self-esteem and contribute to conscious and balanced food consumption, healthy food consumption. Probably, there are not many people who have not heard about the positive impact of morning exercise, meditation, book reading, listening to calm music, walking in the fresh air, etc… Unfortunately, daily routine dictates its format and ruins any attempts to find emotional balance during the day. And, as a result – imbalance in eating FOOD.
Let me introduce the Emotional diet
So, here is a one-day plan for Emotional diet which I have created for myself half a year ago. It is always under development, because nothing is perfect, never. Yep, it is not a meal diet arranged by hours and calories, it is the Emotional diet, where certain activities should be done to increase inner harmony and therefore, prevent overeating or junk-food consumption.
Must-do activities during the Emotional diet
Emotional diet plan provides some must-do activities by hours, where emo-calories (“emotional calories”) play a role in scores to be reached. To come up to the scratch of a perfect day, emo-calories should compose at least 100 scores, and that would be just an initial stage. Certain activities give a relevant amount of emo-calories to reach inner harmony during a day. Let’s start right now!
Ingredients for Emotional diet (one-day menu, duration 7 days)
|Activity||What to do?||Duration||Score|
|Morning smile to myself||Smile to yourself with a big real smile right after opening your eyes in the morning, right in bed||5 sec||5|
|Slow water drinking||Drink a glass of water in the morning, slowly while sitting and relaxing||1 min||5|
|Social media after 2 hours||Checking social media not earlier than 2 hours after wake up||10 min?||5|

|Mirror smile||At midday, look at a mirror and smile in a big real smile to yourself, just do it, move your lips to imitate a super smile!:)||5 sec||5|
|Slow tea/coffee drinking||Drink your tea/coffee slowly while sitting and relaxing||1 min||5|
|Slow eating||Eat your lunch slowly and calmly. Calm eating means no TV, no music, no mobile phone or a computer during meal consumption||20-30 min||5|

|Nature walking||During morning or daytime, to get a dose of sunlight and fresh air||1 hour||25|

“It is impossible” syndrome
It is difficult to smile!
I need to say that it is difficult at the beginning even to smile to yourself in the morning, but it works wonders to feel great. SO, worth a try!
In the next posts on this topic, more and more advanced examples will be provided, so let’s keep in touch!
It is not necessary, and probably not possible, to complete all the above mentioned activities at once, during the first day. But keep going and see what happens in a week!
How to get emotional calories for well-feeling if that is so unusual and hard to achieve?
- Set an alarm for an appropriate activity to be sure that the “consumption of the emotional calories” is full and completed
- For example, if a duration of meditation is 20 min – set an alarm for 20 min, one should concentrate all his/her attention to start doing it
- Mark your mood changes and food preferences within a day in a written form (on a piece of paper, in a notebook, or making phone notes) while practicing the Emotional diet
- Note that there are no scores with negative values
- For example, if instead of meditation one has chosen to gossip or watch TV – no scores are taken away
- We concentrate our mind only on positivity and growing inner stability
- All the attempts should be concentrated on the accomplishment of the “emo-C” activities
And we will meet with the same topic after 7 days to continue! This is just a beginning!
