Peace with Holiday Eating Guide
- You could enjoy holiday eating with less or no guilt.
- Not care about what your (fill in the blank) says about weight or food?
- Eating out and holiday meals and food could again become experiences of connection and satisfaction, not just with your food but with others and yourself.
Whatever our backgrounds and relationship with the holidays, we want it to not feel hectic, soul-sucking and pressured to be something we are not. Unfortunately, many of us have this experienced these on some level. But maybe we can reduce if not eliminate that, especially around food.
I have a pattern of over-giving, which has left my needs in the dust and nervous system wishing it was Jan 2. Not to mention when I was obsessed with food and weight, I was adding on more pressure NOT to gain weight, which made me struggle with holiday deliciousness and use the gym as a way to burn it off. Definitely decreased any holiday cheer and created dread. It doesn’t need to be this way!
This time that we will meet will be devoted to learning to tune in with ourselves for the subtle and big ways we have been communicating our overwhelm around our food behaviors or about our bodies and how we can help build safety to take risks with food and body/self acceptance. We will also allow ourselves to get clear about how we want to be treated in regards to being with family.
Here’s a taste of what you’ll discover in this holiday eating guide:
- how to tune in to yourself and body through big and subtle ways
- how to build safety to take risks with food and body/self acceptance
- get clear about how we want to be treated in regards to being with family
My wish for is for you to gain confidence in being with any shame, discomfort and ambivalence about transforming your relationship with food and body AND learn skills to help you shift from avoidance to ability and sovereignty over your eating experiences.
