Fasting Is Not Just For Food

Fasting means willingly abstaining from something for a period of time and is mostly used in the terms of food.

Fasting not only gives us a chance to get away from something, but also the clarity and silence that may be needed in order to really figure out what is going on with our lives.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed by life?

Most people have experienced stress related to work, family, relationship, responsibilities, or simply life in general.

Need help? Well, it’s at your finger tip.

What is it?  Fasting.

The Process of Fasting

Have you ever felt overwhelmed because of the choices you have made—and society will continue to add to your obligations, if you let it.

Input from so many sources can swamp even the most organized individual. That’s how fasting comes into play.

Food fasting has been used for centuries to cleanse the system of toxins and give the body a break from the constant demands of having to process food.

Research has confirmed there are as many psychological benefits to fasting as there are physical benefits. For those who has successfully gone through any fasting process (either long or short) could reveal evidence that fasting can restore control.

If you fast successfully, you prove to yourself you can implement self-control over food; it indicates that you have the ability to re-gain control over other things in life.

I fasted from food for one reason:
·      On my way to relieve my bloating problem, with the side effect of weight lose.

Food fasting may not be for everyone but it taught me one important lesson in life - I can say ‘No’.  If you could learn to say ‘No’ through food fasting, you can learn to say ‘No’ to a number of other things in life, through which to re-gain your power of control and live a better life.

Food is not the only fixation that can be the focus of a fast.  Media fast is another hot topic which I’ll talk about in my next post.
