How To Not Feel Stressed About Food

You are on a health journey.

You are overwhelmed with all the differing opinions on food.

You feel frustrated and at a loss.  

You're not sure what to do.

Because of the overwhelm, you stay stuck and don't do anything.

All the while, feeling guilty and shameful for not eating "perfectly."

Or, maybe you are eating "perfectly," but aren't getting the results you thought you would.

So, you blame yourself.

The books said that if you just ate this certain way, everything in your life would change.

But, it's not.

So, it must be your fault.  You are doing it wrong.

Sound familiar?

I've been there, and so many of my clients are in the same spot.

Please, take a breathe, watch this video, and know that you aren't doing ANYTHING wrong.

Because, healing isn't about the food.  

 

 

2 Patterns of Thinking That Create Disease

Your Patterns of Thinking Either Create Health or Disease

I remember when I was sick, and desperately searching for answers.  I tried every diet.  My linen closet was over taken with expensive supplements that didn’t seem to help much.  Our bank account drained from all the books I was buying, practitioners I was seeing, among other things.  Deep down I knew I wasn’t destined to be a sick person.  That just wasn’t me.  I use to have so much fun.  I loved life.  I use to be happy and free from any worry about my health.

I found myself stuck on the couch, researching and hoping to just FIND THE ANSWER.

On that journey, I started finding a lot of books and experts saying that I needed to release stress and change my thoughts.  Really?  I can just THINK myself out of an auto-immune disease?  I could THINK myself out of fatigue?  Anxiety?  Stress?  Right.  I figured, I would worry about the woo-woo stuff and my thoughts when I feel better.  Right now, I’ve got a disease to reverse.  I didn’t think there was any possible way to heal my body with my thoughts.  So, I kept on doing what I had been doing for the past 8 years - changing my diet, upping supplements, reading, researching, stressing, hoping things would just shift.  

 

When you do what you've always done, you will continue to get what you've always gotten.  My health didn't improve.  

 

I got to this point of rock bottom desperation that made me crack open in a way I never imagined.  I didn’t care how woo-woo this stuff was anymore.  I needed to get better, and I was willing to do whatever it took.

 

So began the journey

 

I started working regularly with an energy medicine practitioner (doing much of the same work I do now for clients).  I put affirmations up on my bathroom mirror.  I started thinking and acting like I was already better.  I did small things every day that made me feel happy – going for walks, dancing with my kids, spending intentional time with friends and my husband. 

Slowly, I was letting go of the wall of rules I had built up around myself to support illness. 

 

2 Main Patterns of Thinking That Create Disease

Here are 2 of the main thoughts I had built into my life that supported illness.  These were core beliefs that I was basing my life around.  Which kept me stuck, no matter how great my diet was or how many supplements I took or how much I exercised. 

 

1.      There is something wrong with me.  FYI, this is a huge lie.  One that is, unfortunately, underlying most of the alternative health world right now.  Marketing makes us think that there is something wrong with us that needs fixing – if that’s the cover of Cosmo magazine telling you how to lose a dress size in a week, or a high profile alternative health guru selling a supplement, diet, or product.  The underlying message is still there same.  There is something wrong with you, and you need to do something about it.  It’s a lie.  If we fall trap to it, it can take you down a long dark rabbit hole of illness.  Trust me, I've done it.

2.     I’m not good enough.  Another big lie that undermines our health, happiness, and vitality.  You ARE good enough.  Simple as that.  Believe it, and surround yourself with people who support that idea too.  If not, your life is going to feel like one shortcoming after another.  You are worthy of thriving health.  You are worthy of joy, and laughter, and community, and success.  Joy is your divine birthright.  Period. 

 

It doesn’t matter when or where or why I started believing these negative affirmations.  But, somewhere along the journey, I started to internalize that there was indeed something wrong with me.  I mean, why else wouldn’t the miracle diets and supplements not be working for me?  I thought there was some mystery I needed to solve about my health.

 

Actually, all I had to do was to start thinking, believing, and acting like there was NOTHING wrong with me. 

Within 3 months, after 8 years of being sick, it was all gone.  Change your thoughts and your life will change.

Craving sugar?  

Punishing yourself into the next diet?  

Your life could heal.  Your health would transform.  You could finally feel deep love and respect for your divine body.  You could pursue your passions.  

 

I Totally Get It...

I’ve been there.  I grew up on sugar, and then used it as comfort food as an adult. Stressed out?  Grab the ice cream.  Celebrating?  Let’s bake cookies!  Birthday?  Party?  Holiday?  Survive the day with kids at home?  Eat all the sugar! 

It became so ingrained into my daily life that I didn’t even notice it anymore.

Then I got sick, and started down the road of natural healing.  Of course, all of those paths lead back to diet, nutrition, and cutting out SUGAR.  I would try and fail so many times.

I would feel gross, decide this was the “last time”, binge, restrict my food or try a new diet (vegan! raw! paleo!), stress would hit and cravings would start, and I would eventually cave and start eating the white stuff again.  

Sound familiar?

There is a better (healthier) way to live.

I thought sugar was the problem.  If I could just stop eating it, everything would be better.  But, the problem wasn’t sugar.

I went on a journey of self-care, healing, and discovery.  When I stopped believing I was broken, dropped the struggle, and finally let go, I HEALED.  I was always searching for the big secret to my health.  I thought there was one big mysterious puzzle piece that I had missed to kicking my cravings.  And, there was.  But, it wasn’t a superfood, a supplement, a modality, or anything like that.  It was JOY.

Now It's Your Turn...
