5 Non-Food Ways To Boost Digestion
Did you know that stress is a big reason for poor digestion? Of course food matters, but optimal digestion involves more factors than what’s on your plate. To improve digestion I recommend my clients integrate these 5 non-food related activities.
- Spend time in nature. Interact with animals. Return to Mother Earth. It’s time for you to remember who you are. Deepening your connection to the divine source will uplift you and de-stress you.
- Instead of looking at what you’re eating, look at how you’re eating. Stop eating so fast. Panicked eating is stressful eating. Slow down. Savor. Stress chemistry is a major reason for poor digestion. It’s crucial to reverse that and give the body “happy chemistry.”
- Hang out with healthy, happy people. Being around a strong positive energy will greatly improve your own “happiness chemistry.” Improving your happiness chemistry will make your belly happy too. Again, when the body is under stress, peristalsis is slowed and digestion is down-regulated.
