How to take Care
The universe is amazing. It has cycles for everything i.e. the seasons, weather, etc. But did you know our body also has a cycle? Our body too is a miraculous machine just like we have fixed times to go to work, eat, sleep and do our routine chores.. our body also a fixed time to perform it's daily functions..
What is it, exactly? Your body cycle is basically a 24-hour internal clock that is running in the background of your brain and cycles between sleepiness and alertness at regular intervals. It's also known as your circadian cycle.
Your body works in 3 cycles per day:
Cycle 1 - From 4am to 12pm – Cleansing process
This is the time when our body is getting cleanse & releasing out toxins and so we get up with bad breath, sweaty, tired (all these are detox symptoms). If you are willing to have something during this time rely on liquids i.e. fresh fruit juice or green juice which will help in this cleansing process. That is why it’s said, breaking the fast (Breakfast) is very important meal of the day, so do it right, or else proper elimination won’t take place.
Cycle 2 - From 12pm to 8pm –Building process
Now here you have more energy for your body functions. This is the time, we are most awake, active, present and therefore efficient at digesting. This is when we should eat the majority of our heavy concentrated foods. This is why the majority of meals (lunch, dinner and snacks) also occur during this cycle. The most important thing to do then is to eat only when hungry and in smaller portions, so you give your body plenty of breaks and chances to break down through the food with the least required effort.
Cycle 3 - From 8pm to 4am –Repairing process
This is the time you are most likely to be relaxed or sleeping. It is when all the repairing, renewing and healing takes place. It is very important that you have dinner early, so that the food you eat gets digested and you get all the required nutrients to function & the remaining gets ready for elimination which is the start of next cycle all over again.
Try and follow these cycles of your body so that you get benefited for life.
