category 3: top tips for your well-being
Your quiz result shows that you scored highest in the Category 3 bio-emotional scale, and you will benefit from the following nutritional and lifestyle hints:
- Do not eat for comfort or if it feels as if the previous meal is not yet digested.
- Emphasise these tastes in your diet:
– Pungent foods like peppers and ginger, which will help to keep you from complacency and stagnating
– Bitter foods like leafy greens and asparagus, which will help improve your grasp of new information
– Astringent foods like lentils, dry beans and grapefruit, which traditionally help reduce or prevent overeating
- All foods have certain inherent qualities. Emphasise these in your diet:
– Light foods like grapes, apples, spinach, asparagus and cucumber, which will help to tone your slow digestion
– Dry foods like dried beans, barley, corn, potato, brussel sprouts and peas, which will help prevent mucus disease and counter excessive oiliness
– Hot and spicy foods, which will warm your cold body type and sustain your warm spirit
- Partake in regular endurance exercises like long-distance running, aerobics, weight training, rowing and dance. If you haven’t exercised in a while, start with walking and increase distance and speed incrementally. Do this at least 5-6 x/week, but never just before or after a meal.
- Travel to new areas and take in new sights and experiences regularly! If you travel a lot anyway, consider new routes and types of travel experience.
- Ensure that you interact with interesting companions and are challenged mentally and emotionally.
- Wake and start your day by 06h00 to ensure you become energised sooner than normal. Much as you are able to stay awake into the wee, small hours, try and get to bed by 22h00, as pre-midnight sleep ensures better rest and energy renewal.
- Start a new hobby – preferably one that is not sedentary, nor keeps you in your own world!
- Set your watch ahead for better time-keeping.
