Archive for the ‘eating disorder’ Category

Here in the Northeastern US we’ve been literally bombarded with severe weather.  Many are “stuck in” more than usual and take to the munchies or simply give in to cravings that may not surface while being out and about.  And then there are those who chase the food cravings no matter what the weather. This Valentine’s Day, before Zumba class at my gym today the instructor lovingly handed us each of us a chocolate kiss.  Someone refused it – and confided in me that if she has one now then afterwards she will go to the store and buy a candy bar.  Later we had a conversation re EFT Eliminating Emotional Eating.  I’ll be guiding her with this starting this week.

I participated in EFT trainings  with a professional colleague – an eating disorder therapist – who later successfully ran support groups weekly with this modality. I had co-facilitated programs with her: “Breathing, Not Eating” re mindful breathing in front of the fridge or cupboard before opening and movement release – affirmations sessions with my audio program Moving Meditation® Fitness: A Fitness and Relaxation Program More Information 

Currently, I’ve helped many clients overcome eating challenges, especially emotional eating.

From Dr. Bruce Kesten, DC.: “Tapping each day keeps the binges away!.”  Find out more about EFT HERE

We hear so much about food and exercise, but what about the massive affect that the overproduction of cortisol, known as the “stress hormone,” has on the body?  Emotions such as anger, fear, resentment, and guilt sabotage our best intentions and even impact us on a deep biological level.  As the Mayo Clinic says, “The long-term activation of the stress-response system – and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones – can disrupt almost all your body’s processes. This puts you at increased risk of numerous health problems, including weight gain.”

By using this incredible tool – Tapping – to clear stress and limiting emotions and beliefs, you can very quickly get in touch with what you and your body need, lose weight quickly and feel energized and terrific!!

Travel is conducive to gaining perspective!

While traveling sometimes the grass seems greener…yet as Americans most of us  have a lot to be thankful for! Sometimes it’s simply a good mattress and comfortable pillow.

The Zen philosophy of being detached from outcome may be difficult to attain when you have very real goals.

The next best thing can be change your expectations – or perhaps your perspective!

For instance:

  • A full week getaway on a tropical beach is not looking possible, so rethink it to 2 weekends away  at a lovely local resort
  • Working out five days a week isn’t happening.  Three days a week with a good buddy is entirely possible!
  • Repainting the kitchen by the end ofthe month.: Possible; hire someone!
  • Posting three times a day on all social media while moving forward on projects.  Not possible.  Get real help or an app that helps.
  • Lose ten pounds this month.  How about five?
  • Hire a coach and/or enroll in an online course to up productivity.  Doable!  Just do it:):
