In my work of supporting women to reconnect with their bodies and to build a trusting mutually supportive mind-body relationship I often encourage women to listen to their internal wisdom. It is very empowering to be able to trust your body for guidance when it comes to food, movement, and major decisions.
Emotional eating kills us many women from the inside. It messes with digestion, it distorts our already shaky body image, it screws with our confidence, and it depletes our self-trust. The worst thing is that it can make us age faster and become very unhappy. If you want to have vibrant energy, feel light and easy in your body, and finally achieve your healthy weight, this workshop is for you!
The Power Of Being Present With Unpleasant
At one point or another most of us feel that our body is slowing down our progress to live our dreams, or that it gets in a way of our happiness. It might be the whole body or just one particular area. Almost all the women I met hate at least one particular part of their body. They want to tighten it, lighten it, strengthen it, correct it, straighten it, or enlarge it.
A lot of people think that if they really start listening to their body and doing what it asks, they would sit on the couch with a bucket of ice cream and chips. We think that our body is lazy, fat slob who doesn’t want to do anything but eat sweets.
Last week I shared my experience of writing my own prescription. It was a great reminder that my body know what it needs to feel vibrant and healthy. If you want to learn to write your own prescription, order Lissa’s Rankin new book Mind Over Medicine.
A couple of weeks ago I got a very special gift from Lissa Rankin – her new book Mind Over Medicine: Scientific Proof That You Can Heal Your Body. This book is a must read for anyone struggling with chronic illness, facing a life-threatening disease, or interested in preventative self-care (Radical Self-Care as Lissa calls it). I will share my review of the book next week but you can pre-order your copy here.
When I heard for the first time on the plane that you need to put your oxygen mask first before helping others I felt my insides protest. Isn’t it being there for others, especially your child or your loved one is more important?
A lot of people tell me that they are confused and overwhelmed when choosing the foods that are best for their body. They say that their body is unpredictable in its response to certain foods. Sometimes dairy feels ok and other times it causes fatigue and bloating, sometimes nuts feel grounding and nourishing and other times they sit in the stomach like a brick.
If you were watching the news or if you live on the East coast, you know that the past few days have been very rough for many people. Fortunately, most of my friends and clients were not harmed but many of them are left without water, heat, and power.
I spent years feeling torn apart by various nutrition theories and scientific studies. Eastern, Western, raw, vegan, high-protein, athletic, high card, high weights, yoga, walking… I kept reading non stop, trying different things out, thinking that if it worked for so many people it should work for me.
