New Beginnings

As you know, most New Year’s resolutions, like diets, simply don’t work. By February they have been abandoned and we just end up feeling bad about ourselves and telling ourselves we are hopeless.

Instead of beginning the New Year with resolutions of enforced change, willpower, restriction, control and constant striving, what about starting the New Year with the gift of committing to YOU? How about trying a more gentle approach?

Give yourself the gift of kindness, compassion, awareness – the qualities that ultimately lead to long lasting change.

How about thinking about approaching this year by giving yourself a gift?
Something you really want? Something that your future self will appreciate…
Instead of approaching the New Year with the things you will stop doing and shouldn’t do, how about thinking about the things that will nourish and feed your soul?

So for 2016, what is it you truly, truly want?

Start by asking yourself these questions:

  • Who are you becoming?
  • What activities will nourish you?
  • How can you practice self-care?
  • What will feed your body, your mind and your soul?
  • Who or what do you want to let go of?
  • What do you want to do more of?
  • What do you want to start doing?
  • How are you going to have fun this year?

Once you have answered those questions… Go and do those things!!!

Wishing you a year filled with love, ease and abundance!

With love,

Tired of overeating and feeling out of control around food? Dieting and restriction hasn’t worked for you? Ready to end the war with your body?

I can help you find peace and freedom around food, eating and your body:

“Wellness isn't about deprivation and it's not about perfection. It is about pointing yourself in the direction of growth, training yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential and then taking small steps to support that shift. It is about showing up for yourself day by day and then one day finding that you have undergone a transformation.”
