Report on the forum 1 Kaizen move for Healthier Eating Guidelines you can stick to right now.
Take a moment to look back on what has shifted since we began almost 2 months ago.This week we refine our eating habits. Ayurveda has some specifics on eating habits that make a world of difference over time. Meal spacing is a game changer. Learn all about it in the video of the week.
When I first started learning Ayurveda and the Food Guides I was overwhelmed with what I was supposed to be doing and what I was actually doing! I had some idea of the really obvious things that I was doing and no idea about the other guidelines I was not aware of. But I was taught right form the start to take all of these rules and guidelines slowly and my most important first. Where was I right now and what would serve me the most at this moment. This is where Kaizen can serve us...Slow, incremental steps to gain better results, faster.
