Honoring the World Within: Expectations
My lifestyle prior to conducting this experiment was not necessarily unhealthy, but rather unaware of the detriment some small actions had on my health. I was able to recognize everyday ailments, such as fatigue or allergies, but unable to identify their source. For instance, I have always been prone to snacking in between meals on the go. I did not realize the significance of eating slowly and consciously at specific points during the day. In addition, my food choices were not entirely beneficial to my body based on my doshic constitution. I was aware going into the experiment that eating only three set meals a day would be very difficult for me, however I had confidence in my decision. I believed that conforming to the guidelines of my experiment would result in less fatigue and increased general happiness.
