The quality and length of our sleep has a big impact on our overall functioning and affects every cell in our bodies. Allowing enough time for sleep and making sure we have a regular sleep ritual that works for us in terms of relaxing before bed, is truly something we can nourish ourselves with.

Here is an interesting and in-depth interview with Dan Pardi, regarding the neurobiology of sleep and its benefits for health and wellness. Please click the link below:

The Hunger Mood

The Mind/Body Nutrition and Eating Psychology approach tackles weight issues, disordered eating, binge eating and so on by looking at the root causes for the problems rather than focusing solely on diets and dietary theories – which are more often than not only part of the picture.If+you+think+food+is+your+problem,+then+it’s+time+to+dig+deeper

Without delving more deeply, it is often difficult to improve the particular eating or weight issue sustainably.

One of the areas many people have problems with is their hunger cues, thinking of it as merely a physiological process out of their control and that they have no ‘willpower’, when in fact there is a huge psychological element to it that has nothing to do with willpower.
Understanding this can help to create long term improvements especially regarding weight issues.

Below is an interesting article written by Michael Graziano, a neuroscientist who is Professor of Neuroscience at Princeton University, USA. He explains how hunger is determined largely by our psyche. Click on the link below to view.
