A Healthier & Happier Whole Being
I stressed about food and all that stressing created some bad food habits! No more though. Do away with the negative and focus on the good and the positive. Do away with the worry and anxiety as well as the confusion and guilt. Be kind to yourself and learn to like you and your whole being!
Food is not the ENEMY!
Food is a source of nourishment for me now! It is necessary fuel for energy throughout the day. Food is a source of pleasure for me now! I can eat without the guilt.
Nourishing . . .
I am not saying it is easy and does not come with its fair share of challenges, but stressing about it is not the answer! Why not think simpler when it comes to thoughts of food!
Why do we think about food as much as we do? What to eat? What not to eat? Commercials, food blogging and recipe sharing, cooking shows, etc. Social media, television, magazines. Remember to tune into your body, really listen to it and understand your body’s needs first and foremost!
Then there are the food-related findings! Is there truth or not? Will it work for me or not? Should I listen or tune it out? Go in with an objective mindset!
Remember that you know your body and your health and well being best! There are options, choices and ideas. There is the sharing of information from experts. However, you know what is right for you and your whole being!
The number one thing I do for my whole being is to try and carry a water bottle with me. I know when I am truly hungry, but it is those cravings that can trip me up at times. That craving is usually a sign for water.
Hydrating . . .
I know for me I had to change from the inside in regards to eating, health and well being! That voice inside my head that tries really hard to take control over me. Then I could handle the non-supportive others in my world. When it comes to handling the non-supportive people in my life I move along, change the subject or sometimes just speak up that I am not okay with that talk! I know they mean well, but sometimes it hurts and becomes personal.
It is a process of change, especially from within yourself! I find change easier when I replace versus just remove something!
- It is about listening to your body and its needs.
- It is about tuning into your whole being from the inside out.
- It is about loving and caring for your whole being.
- It is about being kind and compassionate to your whole being.
- It is about trusting and valuing yourself.
- It is about feeling more confident to make the changes that are necessary for health and well being.
How do you truly want to spend your time and energy?
I know I want to spend it on doing what I love.
