You know, other people can really make things harder than they need to be sometimes! I get that all the time too - "how can you do that" and "no way I would do that".
Our bodies spend so much precious time and energy trying to digest and protect us from the junk and poison that we put in them that there's no strength or time left over to do things like regenerate and build and heal. You're giving yourself that! It's like a gift that you can give to yourself. You're letting your body rest from most of the rigors of digesting, and you're allowing your body to have the time and energy to help build and rejuvenate and heal you. That's what it's all about, and more power to you that you recognize how to do that! I hope you keep posting and letting us know how it's going.
