Today’s episode is a really important one because its about how you learn to respond to and deal with your negative thoughts around food and your body.
You know the thoughts telling you things like:
You can do every diet in the world and they will NEVER change the way you think about food and your body. Which is why a diet doesn’t fix what you want it to fix.
Having skills to learn how to respond to your negative thoughts is where true, lasting change happens.
And skills don’t include ignoring them, wishing they weren’t there or being verbally abusive to ourselves for thinking them.
There are lots of wonderful influencers and creators out there sharing content to remind you that its ok to have fat on your stomach, to have cellulite on your thighs, to eat carbs after 7pm.
But it isn’t enough just to follow those people and see that—you need actual skills to learn how to respond to the negative thoughts that your brain is producing seemingly every moment of every day.
So I am talking through 4 specific, usable skills you can start practicing to help deal with the thoughts so you can start making progress towards feeling at ease around food and in your body.
(Note: The poem I mentioned is The Guest House by Rumi, not Hafiz. Brain fart.)
We’ll be working on these skills at the Spring Weekend Retreat. Find all the details here to join us May 19-21 in the Catskill mountains of New York.
