Sugar Cravings and Mental Health
There are a number of different mechanisms why one would have sugar cravings throughout the day. The most common underlying triggers for this include blood sugar imbalances and insulin resistance due to a poor diet or large feeding gaps throughout the day, HPA axis dysfunction, and emotional eating.
HPA axis dysfunction is what happens when we are under a tremendous amount of stress. For many this stress leads to a desire for sugar. Most of us have experienced an emotional eating crisis as well when we looked for sugar to help us cope with certain emotions such as loneliness, sadness or depression. Stress, anxiety, identity issues.
Another MAJOR reason for blood sugar imbalance is inactivity. If we don’t use our muscles regularly, then stored sugar remains in the cells while blood sugar gets diverted into fat stores. By using your muscles through movement, you can burn up those stored sugars and improve blood sugar response for 2 hours following.
My recommendation is to perform 10-50 air squats whenever you start to feel the craving for sugar coming on. If you have knee problems or for some reason cannot perform a squat, you can also perform an overhead press with light weight.
For an added benefit, try this Super Brain Yoga move that combines the squatting motion with a specific pressure application using your fingers to improve brain function! Hold your left ear lobe with your right fingers, and your right ear lobe with your left hand. Your arms are crossed in front of you. Now, push the tip of your tongue into the roof of your mouth. Now do the squats.
This is an ancient mudra exercise which is known to balance both himispheres of the brain, improve the harmony of your emotions. The tongue energises the pineal gland, and the pituitary and hypothalamas and adrenals. Often called Adrenal Stress.

A Traditional Practice
Educators and parents in India have long used what is called murgha punishment incorporating the very technique of super brain yoga into the classroom. This punishment, also a form of yoga, is an exercise with the scientific rational that it improves oxygenation to the nervous system and brain thus promoting better concentration and the ability to learn.
Placing the hands on alternative earlobes is a concept that originates from the science of Ayurveda medicine in which pressure points on the earlobes stimulates neural function on both sides of the brain. Individuals who practice superbrain yoga describe feeling more balanced and at peace shortly after performing this simple exercise (5 – with thanks to Dr. David Jockers)
