You may have gained a few pounds while you were in quarantine, and your social interactions have been limited. This may have been stressful. Stress can be very bad for your body, and it can even kill you. There are five wellness trends that you should try to get back into both mental and physical shape so you can move beyond the pandemic.
1. Intuitive Eating
There have been a lot of diets introduced over the years. Some have been high in carbs, and some have suggested a reduction of carbs. Some are high in the good kinds of fat, and others have suggested a low-fat diet. Other plans have suggested getting more of the “good kinds” of fat.
Have you ever considered the possibility that your body craves certain foods because you need them? The theory of intuitive eating would suggest that your body knows best.
Eating the things your body has a craving for does not necessarily mean indulging yourself in cakes and pies all day. Although, the occasional sweets are fine. Your body craves certain nutrients, and if you listen to it rather than following a set diet, you may get what you need.
Dietitians Evelyn Tribole and Elyse Resch came up with the concept of intuitive eating. It is based on ten basic principles. It advises paying attention to what your body is telling you to eat rather than listening to what doctors or body-shaming advertisers tell you to do.
