Many of my clients see me because they suffer from bloating after a meal. They feel uncomfortable, like they have eaten a massive portion even if they only had a small meal. They feel tired, sluggish and have difficulties getting on with their day. If that sounds familiar, try the following strategies:
Willpower is great. It works perfectly when we hit a deadline or need to do one specific task. Think tax return. Ironing your shirts. Taking the do for a walk. If you don’t do it, you will face immediate consequences: a fine from HMRC, no shirts tomorrow or.. (well, you can guess!)
But if you want to make long term changes like eating healthier, or need to do something on an ongoing basis like adding some exercise to your life, willpower doesn’t work. It’s like a muscle, it wears out.
Drinking more fluids during the day is the single most important thing you can do to support your body, brain and energy levels. Water is best but there are other tricks that can help you hydrate.
