A way to trick your brain…

One trick of trying to not over eat and to also start eating healthier is to trick your brain. One idea is to use smaller plates so that when you fill up that plate your brain thinks it’s eating a lot of food, but it isn’t and by doing that you reduce the number of calories you intake. You might want to make guidelines for what can go on that plate. For example, you probably want to outlaw fried foods, sugary foods, high carb foods, high in fat foods, and stuff. It’s your body so the best guidelines should be made by between a health professional and you.

Words about the six meals a day…

If your in a job that keeps you very busy and there is no time for a small meal or snack I suggest quick protein shakes for meal replacements. If not maybe a granola bar…? maybe? That way you trick your brain into being fed all the time. I know that I probably could do the six small meals…I just don’t like it.

Drink copious amounts of water…

This fills you up as well and makes you less hungry is another trick. Also, not only does it fill you up it cleanses your body of toxins and other things and keeps you hydrated. This is a good thing trust me. You should be taking a trip to the bathroom at least six times a day. If you do not urinate six times a day then that’s not healthy… (Side note: If you have to go three times that amount you might want to talk to your doctor.)

And there you have it….three tricks to use on our brains without them knowing it. Okay it is your brain and it does know, but it’s more of tricking the brain through the eyes and an optical illusion thing…I dunno. But, hopefully these things work! I know the water one does and the plate one, but the six small meals does not work with me.

 

A new organization tool…

I finally picked up a bullet journal to start my journey of organizing and keeping a record of my life. I’ve been wanting to try this type of journal for a long while, but I didn’t know exactly what it was or how to use it. I tried looking on the internet about tutorials and example, but they were confusing and alien to me. A class mate of mine has a bullet journal and she showed me how she uses it. Basically you put any freaking thing you want in it and each month or each week doesn’t have to have the same order of a schedule either. I think I am going to like this. You know instead of buying planners and journals that have set ways of what you should write and stuff. Everything can be into one and I don’t have to have so many paper books. I still will have paper journals because I love collecting journals (even if I don’t get to use them. I know I’m weird.) and I do use them, I just need to start writing down my thoughts everyday so that they can get used. So, hopefully this works out and I can make it all pretty and stuff. lolz ^^;;
