Life is precious, it really is. It is only when life presents you with a loss, or devastation, that you truly re-evaluate your place in the world. It is so easy to let life pass you by and not do what your heart truly speaks of you.

If you are a person who has learnt to connect mind, body and soul then acting on impulse will be second nature to you. “Carpe diem” may even be your mantra/motto that you live by, which is great. However, if you are one of many who has lost, or never had the mind/body connection, then to be spontaneous will not come easy.

Living in a world of social media has increased the decline of mind/body connection. We live in a ‘rat race’ world which makes it even more imperative to take the time to learn how to act on impulse. It is as simple as listening to your gut feeling, and believe it or not there is no better time than now to act!!!

However, by no means mistake the concept of ‘acting on impulse’ (or rather your gut feeling), for making an impulsive decision based on poor judgement. This kind of action can lead to massive regrets at a later stage.

Did you know that there are far more positive quotes for impulsive behaviour, on Google, than negative ones?

For many moments in life, acting on impulse is a good thing. But at other times, it is not. As a PT I constantly hear of my clients incessant cravings. Don’t give in to cravings. When you suddenly feel hungry, a short while after having consumed a meal, or have a craving to eat something sweet, don’t act on it. Instead, have a glass of water and wait for 10 minutes. The brain, when thirsty, usually sends us mixed signals. These are masked as hunger pangs or sugar cravings. Giving in to such cravings, you end up consuming empty calories which the body does not need. This will lead to weight gain. Thus be patient, and wait a little while. Douse that craving with a tall glass of water!

Please get in touch with me if any of this resonated with you! I am happy to provide a free consultation to see how I can help you to better your ‘mind/body’ connection and to get and keep you in ‘balance’.
