Feeling rushed? No time for breakfast?
How to Slow Down
How many people are overwhelmed with making too many decisions every single day, and are looking for a way to make life a little bit easier? Hey, I’m Karen Taylor of The Breakfast Cure. Let’s talk about decision burnout. If you are feeling rushed, no time for breakfast on an average day, then this is a prescription for some added tranquility to your morning.
The best thing we can do to reduce stress is to have some routines to make our day easier. One of the ways we can do that is by having a breakfast plan that we love, that’s easy, and that reduces the number of decisions we have to make every single day.
Now, you already know if you’ve seen any of my other videos, how much I love congee and that’s what I’m here to teach you about, but today I want to talk about why congee is so important for your mental/emotional state.
Easy on the old Gallbladder!
Decision-making is the domain of the Gallbladder. In Chinese medicine, every organ has an associated emotion and it governs certain aspects of mental function. Too many decisions are hard on the Gallbladder and someone with a weak or toxic Gallbladder will have trouble making decisions. More on that in an upcoming article on organs and emotions, but managing stress is crucial for organ healing.
Congee is a porridge that you cook overnight in a crock pot, so when you wake up you’re already one step ahead of the game. No decisions to make, breakfast is ready whenever you’re ready to eat it. You can ease into your day.
You already know you’re not going to have to think about what to eat. You’re not going to have to think about getting enough nutrition.
- Did you get the right amount of calories?
- Did you get your healthy fats?
- Did you get a variety of spices, herbs, and whole grains?
- Did you start your day with a fruit or veggie?
Think about trying congee for those reasons alone, and because it’s delicious and you’ll love it.
Next time you are rushing around in the morning and suddenly realize you’re feeling rushed, no time for breakfast, stop! Take a deep breath, and remember that a better way is within your reach. Breakfast Cure is here to make it easy and healthy, like a hug for breakfast.
