1) Eat mindfully
Do not eat while watching your smartphone, TV or even reading.
Your brain may fail to register satiety and lead to over-eating.
One of the solution:
Eat with your non-master hand. It makes your hand-mouth coordination harder but help you to be more focused and encourage mindful eating.
2) Can I have a machine-printed slip?
Nearly 40% of the printed slips at stores, restaurants, ATMs, and the like- are coated with the chemical bisphenol A (BPA). BPA, also found in canned foods, has been linked to caner, obesity, diabetes, infertility, and heart disease. It is dusted on to receipt surfaces to activate printing dye. It can rub off on your fingers in seconds and enter your bloodstream within hour.
Wash your hands with soap and water regularly. Best if you could reduce asking for a printed slip.
3) Drinking loads of water detoxes the body?
Water hydrates the liver and kidneys and encourages toxins to leave the body via urination. However, gulping bottles of water excessively in the name of detoxing can be just as dangerous and detrimental to health. Doing so may lead to “water intoxication”.
It is a better idea to spread your intake of water each day evenly.
Not covered in the course but good to know that our lymphatic system plays an integral part in the immune functions of the body. It is the first line of defense against disease. This network of vessels and nodes transports and filters lymph fluid containing antibodies, lymphocytes (good) and bacteria (bad).
The body’s first contact with these invaders signals the lymphatics, calling upon this system to orchestrate the way infection-fighting cells prevent illness and diseases from invading microorganisms.
How (few of the many ways)?
Deep breathing exercises stimulate lymph flow to avoid toxin build-up and bring more fresh oxygen to your cells.
Exerises: While your muscles are moving, they massage your lymphatic system which improves lymph flow.
