Hello. emoticon
I hope this finds you well. I am doing better and continuing to work on my "habits".
ELD is now firmly part of my life. I sleep much better and have fewer digestive issues. When I do eat off plan, I am having an easier time get back on track. If you are interested, Cate Stillman has been running podcasts on Ayurveda since the beginning of the year. I just finished listening to her discuss weight loss and Ayurveda.

Everything is still frozen here and we are expecting more snow tonight. I am very ready for spring!!! emoticon Stay warm and take care. emoticon

GILL - I love your monthly goals! I am working exercising every day so that will be my goal for March. Thank you for continuing on with me. emoticon



emoticon Discussion Questions - Habit 1

Q: How can you apply kaizen, or a 1% improvement, to eating earlier or lighter this week?
I think I have mastered the ELD. I am done eating by 6:00 most days. Twice in the last month I have missed that by less than an hour. I am cooking earlier in the day and have a lighter meal in the evening. Soup and grain bowls, usually. Sometimes leftovers from an earlier meal.

Q: What time do you want to commit to eating dinner this week (5/7 nights)?
I want to be done with eating by 6:00 every night.

Q: How can you use one of the techniques from "Crash Course on Habit Evolution" to make a plan that fits what you want to do, and is doable?
From an earlier trip through the book but still a good answer for me. By making ELD a keystone habit and remembering that an ELD helps me to get a better night's sleep, which helps me feel better and have a better day the next day. Pretty much straight from the book but true for me, too.

No, I don't listen to her podcasts usually.

I'm sorry you are struggling - I love your new profile picture by the way.

My favourite soup is a kind of mushroom soup, or a French onion type soup.

I am struggling a bit. One foot in front of the other. Right? emoticon
Earlier Lighter Dinner is now firmly part of my life. Having soup for dinner has made it easier to make the change, I think. One of the best parts of winter is hot drinks and soup. Do you have a favorite soup recipe?

Do you listen to Cate's podcast? Today I listened to her talk about rhythm and the habits and making order out of chaos. I am craving order these days. I am also longing for spring. It will come and I will get through this rough patch. emoticon But until then take care, stay warm. emoticon

Discussion Questions - Part 1

Does Your Life Aggravate Your Body?
Q: On a scale of 1-10 what is your level of commitment to doing this book together for the next 10 weeks? Simply be honest with yourself and others.

10.

How to Have a Body
Q: What struck you personally about the three causes of disease according to Ayurveda?

Prajnaparadha - making negligent choices - When under stress, I am still throwing my habits to the side instead of taking comfort from them.

Asatmendriyartha samyoga - disrespecting your senses - Learning to listen to my body is an ongoing process for me.

Parinama - living out of rhythm - I am working on aligning with the rhythms of nature.

Q: How is "not learning from your past" playing out in your choices right now? Do you have habits that you'd like to shift? If so, what are they?

Not learning from my past? Well I am trying to shift or relearn too many things at once, I think. That hasn't worked for me in the past so I may need to scale back on my plans.

Habits that I would like to shift?
Not recognizing when I am 80% full. I would like to get better at that. I am eating on a 8/16 IF schedule with no snacking, 2 - 3 meals a day. If I don't pay attention and stick to my schedule, I get too hungry and eat too fast and eat too much.

I am still working on automating an exercise and meditation routine.


Crash Course in Habit Evolution
Q:What do you want right now in your lifestyle? Time? Energy? Sleep? Better food? Better daily flow? Get clear on your WHAT and share.

More energy, better sleep, an organized household and daily flow.

Q:What do you want right now? ( Ex: I want more sleep each night so I can feel great every day.)

I want a more organized household and to create a better daily flow.

Q: Which of the habit change strategies is most appealing to you? (Ex: Group support, kaisen, anchor statements, etc.)

Trigger the behavior. I seem to be able to make habits stick when I attach them to something else, like time of day. I have made lots of changes but not everything I want to stick has stuck so I keep trying. I want to automate these habits so I keep going.

Gill - Going forward I will post the assignment at the beginning of each month.People can just jump in wherever they are. I have finished the book, at least twice. I stop and restart the habits, each time hoping more will stick. Each time more of them become part of my routine. Then real life gets in my way and I get thrown off plan. But I find my way back to the habits. For instance, Since Christmas, my 16 year old cocker spaniel has been sick. She passed away yesterday leaving me sad and lost. Life. Stuff happens. I am sorry you are frustrated, if you would like to discuss it further please send me a Sparkmail. Be well.

Body Thrive by Cate Stillman.
bodythrive.com/

Ms. Stillman has a free workbook available to book club members.
bodythrive.com/free/

If you would like to know more about Cate Stillman before you jump in, she has another website with numerous resources as well as links to videos and podcasts here:
yogahealer.com/


We will be working our way through this book over the next 12 weeks. This book is about incorporating Ayurvedic practices into your life by making them habits. She has laid out 10 practices/habits and how to go about making them a part of your life. She also addresses the behavioral science behind making changes in your life and habits. Ms. Stillman makes the ancient practices of Ayurveda accessible to those of us that are new to Ayurveda.

Each week I will post the book club assignment and questions as well as any resources I find helpful. Feel free to jump in at any time and add your voice to this discussion. If you come across any resources that you find useful please share. I can't wait to get started! I hope you will join me.
