TODAY'S  FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Eating more on your period?

During our period our  "feel-good" hormone, serotonin, takes a sudden dip, whilst our stress hormone, cortisol, spikes. So we’re in pain and we’re stressed.

Our body, trying to be our friend, wants to help us,  so it seeks to self-medicate through food in order to release good hormones in our body.

Don’t get mad at yourself for eating more on your period, get more self-compassionate.

Did you know what I teach a full module on this in my 10 Day Body Confidence Course?

TODAY'S  FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Why do diets fail?

Because it goes against everything our body is trying to do to keep us alive. It’s not self-sabotage it’s self-protection.

When we restrict calories our body thinks that something has gone wrong, that we’re sick. Calories are energy and our body whose only job is to keep us alive doesn’t like the deprivation of energy, it sees it as a threat.

Which means that not long into your diet you’ll get cravings to eat lots of high calorie (energy) food. This is not you self-sabotaging.This is your body making sure you’re okay and getting you to eat to keep you alive (thanks body).

We need this fail safe to kick in. So next time you think about dieting and restricting your food, just don’t. It’s not gonna work AND since weight loss isn’t the key to happiness it’s just going to be a huge waste of your time.

Need some help rejecting diet culture and living a life of food freedom?

TODAY'S  FOOD FOR THOUGHT

When we stop buying into the belief that we are not enough, we become rich in our ability to show up for ourselves as opposed to societal expectations. The door opens to a life where we can explore our true purpose and meaning.

It is radical because it requires us to reject the idea that some of us are more important than others. An idea that we are all currently prescribed to and one that is only upheld by our buying into it.

We need to stop the comparison and ranking. Eradicate this idea of a sliding scale of worth dependent on our external reality.

TODAY'S  FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Real talk. Are you proud of who you are today? What are the things you’d like to do but haven’t? What is stopping you? Get clear on what it is and then take time to research how to overcome it. We live one life and you are worthy of achieving all that you desire.

Journal prompts: What are the things you’d like to do but haven’t? What is stopping you?

TODAY'S  FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Affirmation: I am letting go of the things I cannot control, I am choosing to surrender to my body trusting that it knows best. 

Your body knows what it needs, knows what it wants, but we often forget that after years of being told we cannot trust our own body. No one knows your body like you know your body. Surrender and trust.

Need some help with that?
