Recently, after a few conversations with my clients, I realized how significantly my attitude towards my body and scale shifted over the past years. Freedom and neutrality are at the top of my desired feelings list. So my relationship with food, body, and scale evolved in a way that honors my desired feelings. If you crave to more freedom, ease, and neutrality in your life, I hope this article is helpful.
Since my husband and I started our 9 months travel adventure, one of the things I miss the most are my daily Skype sessions with the most amazing women from allover the world. Supporting women always felt very rewarding to me but I never realized how much I really loved the 1-1 work until I took a break.
Many of you have asked me how I am staying in shape, keeping my digestion regular and overall maintaining balance while traveling for 9 months. Among many things that I do, a regular morning routine is at the core of my self-care. I use morning to set the tone for the day, optimize digestion and elimination pathways, move my body, and calm the mind. I get all of this done in two hours 6-8am or lately 530-730am.
You can live you life trying to prevent downward movement: trying to prevent feeling bad, sick, depressed, or fat. Most likely it will involve trying to figure out what you can get away with without the unpleasant consequences. So if you are trying to avoid feeling bloated, you will try to figure out what you can get away with without feeling bloated. Or if you are trying not to gain weight, you will try to pin point what you can get away with without extra pounds adding up.
Most of us consider willpower and discipline when it comes to healthy eating a must. How can you be without it? If you let yourself eat as much as you want and what you want, and not exercise you might end up as a fat lazy slob on the couch watching show reruns. Or would you? What if taking out our desire to control, to discipline ourselves, we start living a more in-tune and aligned life with our body and our internal wisdom?
There are still some things I m holding on for dear life:
A lot of people asked me so far: How did you decide to do it? How did you decide to take off considering that you have a business to run and responsibilities to attend to?
Over the past year I have been diving deeper in studying ayurveda and doing a mentorship program in Clinical Nutrition with Liz Lipski. Both programs have been so extensive and time-consuming that I haven’t really shared much of what I have been learning with you. Lots of things learned and lots more to learn. So much that I don’t even know what to start with…
Are you overwhelmed with conflicting information, lack inspiration, and yearning for a deep transformation?
Can you relate to the this?
We danced, we watched stars from a hot tub and then jumped into ice cold pool, we meditated and prayed, we had long conversations over tea and red wine, we danced to awaken the energy of earth, water, fire and air. There were so many moments where I felt an overflowing sense of gratitude and love. I feel so lucky to experience the closeness, love, warmth, and appreciation that women can provide for each other.
