Free Yourself to Love Yourself!
I choose to love and accept myself a little more today than I did yesterday
Instead of looking at everything that is wrong in your life and saying “I have to fix…” Look at everything that is right in your life and say "I am going to make it even better’’.
Subtle, but when you start with the positive and acknowledge the good, feeling grateful for what you’ve done right, then from there on, real change can take place.
Every experience in life is metabolized by the body. We literally turn into what we think, believe and feel. A powerful goal is learning to use your mind to put your body in the best position for success. The mind can indeed be seen as a tool – the idea is to learn to operate it so that it works for us, not against us. This means learning and practicing to let go of negative self talk. STOP IT!!
Easier said than done. We must start to noticing the messages we are thinking and saying about ourselves right now.
Watch the language that you are using with yourself when you look in the mirror. Watch the language that you’re using in any given moment - when you’re out meeting new people or when you’re talking to people you know.
What are you saying to yourself?
Are you being kind?
Are you kind in your thoughts to others?
Are you being kind in your thoughts to yourself?
You can’t get where you want to go with strategies of un-love and self-attack. Your internal language creates the world. Its catching yourself - its awareness which cures. As we make effort, life makes effort back. When you catch yourself in self-judgment, self -hate, negative self -talk, in those moments when you catch yourself ... gently let those statements go.
Relax into it. When we come from panic, force or stress we don’t have access to wisdom. You have to create the conditions for which the wisdom of life can enter you. It’s a practice. If you choose to, you can begin to replace it with something else, something kinder. I’ve learned lasting change and transformation happens when we work on both the nutritional and personal dimensions of life.
I care deeply. I am passionate about this work. I am inspired to share and teach others a better way to sustainable health, weight loss and self-love that resonates from the inside out. If you love the body it will graciously become what it is meant to be.
I promise you don’t have to starve, restrict or punish yourself in order to have a healthy body, a full life and a happy heart. If you struggle with food and body, my wish for you is to know there is hope, that you are not alone and that your challenges are your greatest gifts. Let's put those years of calorie counting, mirror shaming, self-sabotage and food guilt to rest. Forget conflicting advice and feeling overwhelmed and confused about what to eat. Together we’ll explore a world beyond the old outdated strategies that keep you stuck.
