I don't know how you are doing but frankly, things feel heavy. There is a lot going on in the world and we can't help but not only feel our feelings about it but many of you feel the collective heaviness as well.
And I am wondering how this might be impacting your self care and food? For me, I've needed to avoid social media and the news more; I know what happened; there is no reason to rehash the details. I have kept my focus on my family, clients, hurricane clean-up, being more social with you on my Facebook business page (more helpful videos) and else-wise moving a little slower, which feels good for my system.
How are you fairing? Please take a second to notice your breath if you haven't in a while and tune in. Did you notice your hunger and fullness?
If you are a newer reader here, thank you so much. If you haven't watched or used all the tools from the free gift series, please take the time to engross yourself. There is a reason for that.
For me when I first got started with recovery and intuitive eating, one of the reasons for the times I made the most progress was when I went "all in" and surrounded myself with resources. I decided that this was going to work.
It wasn't that I didn't have doubts or fears, but I kept revisting what grounded me and what helped me when I felt bad.
This builds new neural pathways of possibility even if you don't believe it all the time.
The truth is we don't know how the pace of this process is going to go, but if you desire freedom from food and weight worries and want to feel that you deserve this freedom, you have already made several steps there!
Many of you may have already seen this video; it is over 2 years old. However, it accurately breaks down many of the ways the process works and what is possible.
(And as you know, you do not need to look like the person interviewing me to be struggling enough to need help; she happened to be the person interviewing me. This much freedom is a result of the combination of your willingness and me walking beside you. )
*12 week intensives (you and me with 9 months of content and connection condensed into 12 weeks to get you deeper shifts than just once a week meetings on there own).
*If groups are your thing and you have been desiring community, I am re-opening my 6 week Attuned Eating for Attuned Living Group. We focus on one or two areas where you desire alignment with you higher values, instead of living in fear that you won't get past it and live more freely with food and weight. Just in time for holiday support as well!
We start Wed, Oct 25
Be gentle, go with your inner caretaker and tune in to what you are most hungering for with food and for your life.
