How To Lose Weight Or Quit Smoking Using Your Biorhythms

Copyright (c) 2005-2022

The human body is a wonderful living machine with a series of cycles or rhythms as evidenced by the functions of the heart, lungs, and so forth. From the tiniest of cells to the major organs, there are functions that take place in regular patterns.

Among the natural patterns of the body are three different types of physiological changes that affect our behavior.

These built-in patterns are known as biorhythms; and the three individual cycles are identified as the physical cycle, the emotional cycle, and the intellectual cycle.

Biorhythms have a strong influence on the rise and fall of our energy levels, as well as fluctuations in our interests, moods, abilities, susceptibility to accidents, and our sense of well-being. Biorhythms are based on our date of birth and are set into motion the moment we are born.

Biorhythms don't predict any specific events, but they do provide a type of forecast letting us know when we are most likely to be at our best. Biorhythms help us by letting us know when we should use our full potential to take advantage of our favorable days, and when it might be best to limit certain activities and use more caution.

It is best to look at a biorhythm chart as you read this article. So, print the article and then do a search using the search terms "biorhythms" or "biorhythm chart." There are several good sites on the Internet where you can find free charts. Just enter your date of birth and the site will display your biorhythm chart.

The physical cycle lasts for 23 days, the emotional cycle lasts for 28 days, and the intellectual cycle lasts for 33 days. Each cycle has two phases; one positive, one negative, with each phase lasting half as long as the complete cycle.

In general, the positive phase is when we have more energy and are more likely to be at our best at activities related to that particular cycle. During the negative phase our energy is usually a little lower and it can take more effort to do things as well as we do them on our favorable days.

The 23-day physical cycle influences physical strength, stamina, speed, coordination, bodily functions, resistance to disease, and a sense of physical well-being.

The 28-day emotional cycle affects our moods, mental health, sensitivity, creative insights, how we react to others, and our perceptions of the world and ourselves.

The 33-day intellectual cycle has an impact on alertness, memory, the logical and analytical functions of the mind, how quickly we learn new things, and how well we remember what we have already learned.

There is usually influence from more than one biorhythm cycle. For example, a recreational activity can involve the physical and the emotional cycles. Important decisions often involver both the intellectual and the emotional cycles.

Most things can be done at any time, but we can usually do it better and get more out of it when the cycles related to an activity are in the positive phase.

There could be times when the transition from one phase to the next may be rather subtle. In fact, unless you know the position of your cycles by looking at your chart, you may not be aware of the changes. However, do not underestimate the importance of biorhythms and the impact they can have on your life.

Whenever a cycle crosses the baseline, changing from one phase to the next, it is known as a critical day. This is the time when we are most vulnerable and therefore, the time to be most cautious.

When an accident does happen, it happens on a critical day more often than any other time. You can reduce errors and accidents by just being aware of your critical days and using extra caution.

A critical day in the physical cycle is when we are more likely to catch a cold, have some sort of mishap, or suffer some type of bodily harm.

A critical day in the emotional cycle may bring on arguments or quarrels, frustration, or feelings of sadness/depression.

A critical day in the intellectual cycle could result in poor decisions, poor judgment, difficulty in expressing yourself, or a decreased ability to learn or remember.

Okay, now that the basics of biorhythms have been covered, let's look at the best time to lose weight or quit smoking.

Your ability to lose weight is better when you start your diet during a positive phase of the physical cycle, with no critical days in any cycle for at least the next 8 days.

Also, try to find a period of time when there are several weeks when the critical days of the different cycles are not grouped close together.

Whether you count calories, use diet pills, or use hypnosis, your diet can be more successful when you start it at the right time. We are more likely to "pig out" and fill up on junk food or eat too many sweets on a critical day in the physical cycle. A few sweets or a little junk food now and then is okay for most of us, but we tend to let it get out of hand at times.

Awareness of our biorhythms is important to having a good diet and eating healthy.

The best time to quit smoking is 2 days after the emotional cycle goes into a positive phase. You have almost two weeks before the cycle hits another critical day, when you are most vulnerable and unstable, which means your ability to avoid temptation is lower. However, by that time, you have been a non-smoker for almost two weeks and you have gotten through the worst of it. It also helps if the intellectual and physical cycles are in a positive phase, at least for the first few days after you quit smoking.

Whether you quit smoking by using a patch, gum, or hypnosis, you have a better chance of success by doing it when your biorhythms are more favorable.

It takes willpower and determination to lose weight or to quit smoking. Give yourself an extra advantage by doing things at the right time, when things are more favorable.

Biorhythms helped me quit smoking, which is something that I thought I would never be able to do.

Use biorhythms to find the best time to do certain things; the results may surprise you!

Stomach Cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the Western World.
