Stretch receptors in the stomach, eh. I can't believe I hadn't heard of those before. Maybe I wasn't paying attention.

My self care today: I slept in until 10:00. I haven't done that in months and months and months.

Try some diaphragmatic breathing:

Lie on your back on a flat surface or in bed, with your knees bent and your head supported. You can use a pillow under your knees to support your legs.
Place one hand on your upper chest and the other just below your rib cage. This will allow you to feel your diaphragm move as you breathe.

Breathe in slowly through your nose so that your stomach moves out against your hand. The hand on your chest should remain as still as possible.

Tighten your stomach muscles, letting them fall inward as you exhale through pursed lips. The hand on your upper chest must remain as still as possible.

BONUS/ALTERNATE CHALLENGE: Slow it down. We always talk about taking the time to chew your food thoroughly before swallowing but we’re all busy, sometimes we don’t.

From Health.Harvard.Edu: “Scientists have known for some time that a full stomach is only part of what causes someone to feel satisfied after a meal; the brain must also receive a series of signals from digestive hormones secreted by the gastrointestinal tract.

Stretch receptors in the stomach are activated as it fills with food or water; these signal the brain directly through the vagus nerve that connects gut and brainstem.”

Let’s aim to give this communication process some time today and every day that you can. Put your silverware down between bites, sit back and chew thoroughly. Take in the sites (objects, colors, shapes), sounds and smells around you
