After more than 8 years of starting Happy Food, I realized the #1 issue that people struggle with when trying to lose weight and simply be healthier. It’s self-care. Self-care is pretty broad. I’d say all my clients struggle with more than 1/2 of these and some struggle with all of them. We are hard on ourselves. We don’t trust ourselves. We please others before we take care of ourselves. How many of these do you struggle with?
- Never speak badly of yourself
- Be kind to yourself
- If it feels wrong, don’t do it
- Don’t be a people pleaser
- Don’t be afraid to say no
- Don’t be afraid to say yes
- Trust your instincts
- Let go of what you can’t control
- Stay away from drama & negativity
- Say exactly what you mean
- Never give up on your dreams
I read these tips awhile ago (and don’t remember from where), but I wanted to share because it’s so relevant to weight loss. When we feel balanced and happy, we treat ourselves better. We eat better; we take better care of ourselves.
If there are changes you’d like to make in your stress level, eating habits, exercise, and overall health and happiness, start with a free health consultation at www.HappyFoodHealth.com or (619) 876-2655. See if this is the right match for you. I do things very differently to make health a natural lifestyle and this is not for everyone. Check out Yelp for other people’s opinion of Happy Food.
