Can you remember a time when you told yourself that if you could just push through the challenge you would reward yourself at the end? And did you? Did you find pleasure in your reward?
I can wager a guess that you were too exhausted to enjoy the promised reward.
Maybe you were feeling some lingering stress or anxiety from the challenging time.
Or maybe you jumped straight from one stressful task to the next, without ever giving yourself the reward you coveted.
Whatever the case, if you’re not trusting in your body’s wisdom there’s a greater chance that you will not experience pleasure throughout your Life.
This includes finding pleasure in food. Sharing a meal. Enjoying a deliciously prepared feast.
When you can begin to trust yourself, you become more aware of the signals your body is sending you. You can, in turn, respond to those signals before they become signs of distress.
Signs of distress include over eating, binge eating, emotional eating, unpleasured eating, restrictive dieting, fat shaming, body hate, weight hate, sickness, dis-ease, fatigue, and so much more.
Do you want to feel pleasure and joy again?
Have you missed the feeling of lightness in your Life?
It’s never too late.
