Our choices every day grow us or slowly take us down. I don’t believe that there are any neutral choices in life, really. And too often, over time we make enough of those small and seemingly insignificant choices that take us down. We put off getting fit, until we feel more motivated. We put off eating better, until you’re less stressed out. We put off prioritising ourselves, until everything feels less crazy. And this couldn’t be more true than it is right now, dealing with
The chances are that the stress of coronavirus or self isolation is going to be triggering for many binge or emotional eaters. Sugar cravings and “oh f**k it!” moments will happen more than you'd like them to. - You feel a need for comfort in some way. - This is how you've always coped with stress and right now you just really need it. - You're boredom eating because you're stuck at home and the kitchen is right there. - Everything is driving you crazy and this is your coping
We’re living in uncertain times, no doubt.
And given that CERTAINTY is the #1 need all humans have, it’s no wonder things have gone off the rails so quickly

Lately I’ve been hearing a whole lotta “I don’t have time for exercising and eating healthy.” Here’s the deal...

And your health can’t be an afterthought either.

The #1 problem with diets – most of which are restrictive or eliminate entire food groups – is that they are reliant on one thing. YOUR WILLPOWER. And the thing about willpower is that it’s very, very finite. Willpower may serve you for weeks or even months, but eventually it fails. Every. Single. Time. Have you had this experience before where your willpower flame completely extinguishes and you fall right back into your old ways? So many of my clients have. Because it’s not
No one likes the experience of feeling negative emotions. Whether it’s stress, uneasiness, unhappiness, or disappointment – it just feels bad. And it’s supposed to. You see, negative emotions serve a purpose in our lives. They are a CALL TO ACTION. When you feel those negative emotions coming up, carefully evaluate what they are occurring around.
