Feel Free in Your Body and Your Life (An Invitation)

Feel Free in Your Body and Your Life (An Invitation)

When I stopped dieting and decided to start listening to my body's wisdom, I discovered so much more than just an ability to eat intuitively.

I discovered that my body's wisdom could also guide me towards jobs, people, and experiences that would bring me satisfaction. I learned that that hunger was not just relegated to food—there is also a hunger of the soul. 

I soon discovered that one of my soul's biggest longings was for freedom. BIG time. I was working 50+ hours a week in Manhattan at a job that didn't nourish my soul. No wonder most days I'd come home and find comfort in takeout food and a bottle of wine just to feel some sense of satisfaction. When I started to hear the whisperings and intuitive hints from my body, I realized I deeply yearned to quit my job and work for myself more than anything. And I wanted to travel. I wanted to be free.

But I didn't know how!

5 Ways to Feel Good in Your Body NOW

5 Ways to Feel Good in Your Body NOW

Dear friends, 

I'm writing you to you feeling so much better than I was in my first trimester—thanks to changes in hormones, and also some of the tools I'll be sharing with you below.

I've recently had to remember so many of the techniques I learned years ago when I was feeling totally uncomfortable in my body everyday... tools I've been passionately sharing with my clients over the past few years.

In pregnancy, I am reminded how debilitating and distracting it can be to feel uncomfortable in your body ALL THE TIME, so I want to offer a few of my favorite ways to help us feel comfortable in our bodies NOW, no matter where we are in life, and no matter how much we love our bodies (or don't).

When Life is Overwhelming and Ice Cream is the Answer

When Life is Overwhelming and Ice Cream is the Answer

Life isn’t always neat and tidy.

In fact, I don't know if it ever is.

Even in my most enlightened moments when I come up for air and experience profound clarity, I still feel like there’s a current of confusion, worry, angst, or doubt lurking somewhere in the corner of my being.
 
This feeling of worry, overwhelm, and the unknown used to lead me to binge. I would just want something to FILL the void. I wanted a REASON to feel the way I felt, to answer the big questions I had that couldn’t be answered, to snap me out of the Great Mystery in which I was unwillingly lost.
 
I would resist my moments of darkness. I would dispel them, run away from them, judge myself for being “dramatic” or “emotional,” and do my best to contain and control myself and get myself "back in line."
 
Self-policing with food was one way I’d try to snap myself back in line. And when the food police siren went off, the inner binge rebel would retaliate. Cue the ice cream.
