About the balance between physical and emotional bodies

On the left:
Resting energy expenditure of organs
and tissues (1). “Other” consisted of adipose tissue, bone, skin, intestine and glands.
On the right:
Emotional needs to keep the body toned up.

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.

Well-feeling induces well-eating and one should work on it daily

It is impossible” syndrome

Whatever I make is ugly! I do not want to continue, or even to try – better to buy…

I do not want to try – better to buy“,

– the inner fear says

“I do not want to buy – better to try”,

– the inner voice answers

In XXI century, we get used to consume, any factory-made product seems nice and well designed. The attempts to make something by yourself could lead to a great confusion and frustration, because the results seem awkward. That how the power of creation is taken away from us.

That is how the power of creation you convey to unknown hands…

I always remember the Egyptian proverb: “A beautiful thing is never perfect”

the process of creation gives a power, a power of well-feeling

Just few examples of DIY:

  • Face/body cream – two ingredients, just know the technology how to make it
  • Chemically clean garden by making your own compost from vegetable peels
  • Need a toothpaste? The power to make it is within you!
  • What about to use 2-in-1 product for hygiene?: self-made deodorant, or air freshener?

P. S. Have not read about emo-C before? Here is the main info from my previous posts:

QuestionAnswer
What is emo-C in a daily-life?  Emo-C is the “emotional calories” to feed emotional body
Why to apply emo-C in an every-day life?  Emo-C allows to reach inner stability and well-feeling. When we feel well, peaceful and stable, – there is no need to overeat or crave for food
 Could be beneficial if overcoming difficult daily-life or challenging life situations
 Helps to reduce stress, actually it reduces unproductive and destructive stress feeling and leads to the proper responses and actions when needed
What should be done to ensure emo-C consumption?  Emotional calories are achieved by conducting specific activities within a day. These activities contribute to inner stability, peacefulness and well-feeling
How much scores per day?At least 100 scores are needed to ensure day’s intake of emotional calories
Activities to ensure “consumption” of emotional calories  These activities are graduated from very easy and taking just a few seconds to do, to some-how difficult, new, challenging, surprising and taking up to 0.5-1.0 hour
 Should be conducted regularly within all the day  
 Start from one activity, maintain it within a week and later add one more, any of those which seems for you good enough to try

Elite dinner for the winner

Overture

Honestly, some scarecrow stories about eating raw vegetables could lead for funny stories to appear. As this: at the moment I was curious to try raw sweet potato – I was just frighten to take a bite! It is RAW!!! Probably it will bite me back!

🙂 Oppositely, the raw sweet potato did not bite me back, and did not harm me any other way, but I experienced something very very new in tastes. I was thinking for a few days how that should be…and later this recipe appeared in my mind! Keep it very simple, just three ingredients – the parade of taste guaranteed!

What is actually that emo-C?

As we know, basic amount of food calories is essential for the proper work of vital organs and a body as a whole. Only overdose of calories in food, but not its basic amount, plus non-dynamic life style lead to overweight, obesity and related diseases. So, basic amount of consumed food calories is a necessity for a living organism.

I decided to apply the same principle to the “emotional” body – basic amount of “emotional” calories should be essential for the proper work of mental stability and emotional well-being. Basic amount of “emotional” calories, emo-C, should be consumed, in other words, guaranteed by myself to be taken each day for emotional stability, which in its turn leads to not overeating.

These days, I see that emo-C could be actually applied not only for overeating issue, but also for THE DAY, for each day while dealing with the emotional aspect of the pandemic and changing LIFE.

More so, emo-C could be adapted to overcome individual psychological or life-challenging problems and difficulties, which may be similar or different for many of us.

Supta Baddha Konasana

Image from wakefit.co

Supta Baddha Konasana (yoga pose) translates from Sanskrit as the “reclining goddess pose”. The pose which evoke you for calmer mind, fall asleep easy in the evening, better flexibility, and even stronger and more toned legs!

When practiced regularly, Supta Baddha Konasana loosens up the muscles and connective tissues that can get so tight and sore and lead to chronic pain.

Doing this pose in the evening, please remember that you mustn’t do it immediately after a meal. Yep, do not eat at night, guys:)

Here I found the short youtube video which explains the benefits and shows how to make this pose: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CYuGPtaSldU (Lie Like This for 30 Seconds Before Sleep, See What Happens by BRIGHT SIDE))

Contraindications and cautions. It may be contraindicated to practice this pose with knee conditions and during menstruation with excessive bleeding.

It is impossible” syndrome

In the morning I do not have time for exercises, I am in hurry to work. And in the evening too tired to do anything…”

Start doing it on Saturday, Sunday or your other free day – then will be no need to hurry. And in the evening just do it without thinking you are tired or not. Just let it be.

Do not give up! Continue, continue! 🙂

Just few examples of creative hobby:

And we will meet with the same topic after 7 days to continue! This is just a beginning!
