This is very pleasant, considering I don’t feel jittery. Instead it’s more of an increase calm presence with a heightened since of awareness. I find that my decision making is clear but yet quick and precise, contrary to when I drink coffee.

Hello all my Blissful Beings! I hope your day is going awesome! I know if you’re here you’ve come to feed yourself with something amazing. Well as always I will provide you that sweet sustenance that you need to improve your health and increase your happiness. Let’s dive on in then shall we, my Blissful Beings!

Today’s topic is the issue we all face on the day-to-day, “Am I truly eating to Live, or Am I Living to Eat?” I’m sure you’ve been in the grocery store check out line and you spot a “delicious” candy bar and suddenly, in a blink of an eye, your mouth is salivating. You hear the delightful crinkle of you tearing open the wrapper. You feel your heart knocking on your chest, as you let the deceptively delectable treat enter your mouth.

You weren’t craving that candy bar at all, your mind was focused on making a healthy change until you were railroaded by shiny wrappers and catchy slogans. Don’t fret my Blissful Being we’ve all been there. In this moment, Here in lies the question, presented to you in live living color. Am I Eating to Live, or Am I Living to Eat? It can be a challenge when you’re first starting out on your journey to be that Blissful You, that You, that you dream of, that You that is screaming from the pit of your belly, ” Let me be me! I wanna be free of this bondage!”

   There Is Hope! Don’t worry! There is a silver lining, trust me. I didn’t just have a sweet tooth, I had what I like to call a, “sugar mouth”. Every chance I’d get I would be stuffing my face with something that had no purpose in my body besides to satisfy my untrained taste buds. If you are anything like I was, candy wrappers were not uncommon on the floor of your car. Sadly, too many of us believe that it is normal and okay to live a processed food diet filled with anything quick and easy to prepare. Anything that makes our taste buds jump with excitement for a brief moment. Later on we pay the price with sugar diabetes, obesity, unhealthy skin, dysfunctional digestion, heart problems, and chronic fatigue.

I would like to share a few tips with you that I’ve learned on my adventure in life that helped me Eat to Live, and Not Live to Eat. These tips aren’t in any particular order, use whatever resonates with your Blissful Being. Please feel free to show some love with a like and don’t hesitate to leave a comment. Let me know if these tips helped you or if you have any ideas that you’d like to share with your fellow Blissful Beings reading.

1.  Drink Plenty of Water:

   Water! We cant live without it, it’s a big part of who we are. When you make it a conscious decision to drink plenty of water and drink it often you’re making your body extremely happy! You see, when you’re, thirsty you are not able to make the best decisions in your life, because your brain isn’t getting the nourishment that it needs to think critically. When you aren’t drinking enough water you can mistake the feeling of being thirsty for being hungry. One suggestion I recommend is to keep a water bottle with you when you’re out, and whenever you get that craving for a bag of chips, sip some water. You’ll be doing yourself a huge favor.

2. Pack A Snack:

Have you ever just pulled into a fast food restaurant out of desperation. Not even out of desire? You just have to get that bite to eat in before that big meeting, right before picking your kiddos up from school, or you know, once you get to work you’re going to be super busy and wont have a second to even think about food. We’ve all experienced the mid day tummy growl, where anything will do just to quite the beast underneath the belt. To avert the dreaded fast food line one thing I learned to do is, keep a healthy snack handy and easily accessible to ward off the hunger bug. It’s really easy to go unconscious whenever were hungry and make regretful eating decision that we’ll suffer the consequence for sooner or later in our existence. Be smart, Be prepared!

3. Exercise:

Have you ever sweat so hard in the gym or working out at home, thinking about your future image of yourself that the thought of eating a bag of chips or a whole package of Oreo’s ( I’ve done this several times in the past) absolutely disgusted you. Disgusted you to the point of puking? There’s something about working out that makes one’s mind transcend the thoughts of eating unconsciously. Having a goal that you’re working to is an extreme motivator to keep you eating to live and not living to eat. Imagining yourself going from feeling glorious to garbage in as quick as twenty minutes. That feeling really pushes you on a more healthier eating path. Try sticking to a regular exercise commitment and you’ll definitely define those curves as well as curve those urges!

4. Pantry Purge :

Tell me if this sounds familiar. You eat dinner, watch a movie, and right before bed you decide to look in the pantry for a late night snack. As you open the door, turn on the light, and behold before your eyes. A miniature size grocery store snack aisle filled with all the food your inner Blissful Being abhors but your untrained taste buds flip bananas for. This is definitely going to inhibit your growth in the eating to live department. Don’t worry, one evening before bed or early morning grab a trash bag and ditch the junk. You’ll feel the agony at first as you watch you favorite cookies, chips, and dare I say honey buns be fed to your trash, but once they’ve found their new home (your trash receptacle) you will be able to take a deep refreshing breath because you did it! You Purged your pantry of the things that was holding your blissful being in chains . Congratulate yourself with a bowl of tasty strawberries!

5. Make a List and Check It Twice:

My last tip is crucial to your survival in eating to live and not living to eat. You have to make that list and since you’re being your own Santa Claus you gotta check it twice. When you go shopping for food, you have to have the mindset that you are buying gifts for your body. Whats your body worth? Are you gonna buy it those cheap presents just because they’re not expensive or are you going to treat your body with the gift of life? Don’t short yourself when it comes to your earthly vehicle. So when you’re making that list leave off the potato chips, soda, and Twinkies. Your future self will Thank You. Once you make a solid list then you gotta check over it and make sure you are covering all your nutritional bases. Most importantly all my Blissful Beings you have to commit and never waver.

I hope you enjoyed and found these tips useful. They’re things I practice and they’ve made a great difference in my life.
