Listening to your body is key to helping you stay on track with your health. Our bodies give us messages everyday about what is happening on a physical level. I would like to share from time to time what I learn from my body and how I do that so you too can learn to connect with yours and stay healthy.
So each morning I scan my body to see if there are any pains and just check in with what is going on. This morning my stomach was a bit rumbly. Now most of you know that I am also known as The IBS Lady and I have suffered from IBS in the past. I know my triggers so I checked in with what I eaten in the past 72 hours or if I had been stressed or had anything else happen to see what I could discover. We had been out for dinner the night before and I had chosen to eat meatballs in red wine sauce. (you can see how I choose restaurant dishes here). I had also had a red wine and my intuition told me that that was what had triggered my stomach to have some gas and just feel a bit off. Alcohol can be a trigger for many people and if I go over board i.e. having a red wine sauce along with drinking red wine, I get symptoms.
This was a pretty simple deduction, but it helped me to know that I won't order that dish again and to be careful with how much wine I drink.
