How To Distance Yourself From Boredom Eating

How To Distance Yourself From Boredom Eating

You have probably seen the meme, “I need to practice social distancing from the fridge” getting reposted on Social Media. ⛔️

The joke aside, it is very tempting to use food as a replacement for our regular social activities, and the innate need we all have for an emotional connection to sources of joy, bubbliness, and excitement.

Let’s be honest… no one eats broccoli and spinach in order to get the “dopamine” kick found in sugar…

Occasional indulgences won’t hinder our health, of course. But it gets problematic when we use foods high in sugar and trans fats as a method of coping with the recent crisis (or life in general).

The webinar is going to be approximately 60-minutes, and you will receive a LIVE demo of the NLP technique The Swish Pattern that might surprise you with its effectiveness on re-framing our perspective on food and intuitive eating.
When: Apr 4 (Saturday), 2020 10:00 AM Pacific Time (US and Canada)

Affirmations for Goal Setting (Plus Free Audio Recording)

Hey friends,

I hope you’re well.

In this post, I am sharing with you my favorite affirmations for goal-setting, and a complimentary audio recording that you can download and listen on your mobile device.

Three important considerations to keep in mind:

  1. Make sure your goals are measurable, attainable, and motivated by Self (you don’t depend on anybody else to motivate you.)
  2. State your goals in the positive (saying what you want, not what you don’t want.)
  3. Create a list with action steps you can do every day to stay on track.

Slow and steady wins the race.

Eat These Foods To Strenghten Your Immunity

Eat These Foods To Strenghten Your Immunity

Let me tell you, You are A Super Hero!

Your body is an invincible machine capable of handling anything…Please remember than our thoughts affect our organs. Stay calm, and treat your immunity as your partner in health.

My recommendations:

  • Start the day with hot water with lemon 
  • Sip on hot liquid during the day. The heat is known to kill un-friendly bacteria
  • Supplement with probiotics, vitamin D, echinacea and adaptogens (Reishi, Chaga, Rhodiola)
  • Consume tons of vegetables and add turmeric to all of your meals (it is very anti-inflammatory; best absorbed with black pepper)
  • Do daily meditations to remain sane and in good spirits 

Right at this moment, it is not just “cool” to consume healthy foods, it is NECESSARY.


Be well, and please be mindful of the foods you are consuming.

Are they immune-strengthening or immune-weakening?

I am more than happy to share some free recipes and resources with you, as well as individual coaching.

What we eat matters so much when there is a virus going around.

The body’s MAIN job is to keep us alive and in homeostasis. Let us be of assistance!

You Are Responsible For Your Emotions (And here is WHY)

You Are Responsible For Your Emotions (And here is WHY)

By changing your emotions, you change your experience. How? By aligning your thoughts to match your desired feelings.

You Can Master Your Emotions.


When you think self-degrading thoughts of judgment, shame, and scarcity, you produce their emotional equivalent of feeling miserable, desperate, and unloved.


The opposite is TRUE, as well.


When you think empowering thoughts of appreciation, forgiveness, compassion, and generosity, you recreate the reciprocal feelings of joy, kindness, and universal love.

What you see (in the mirror) is what you get. 

🔺When you see yourself with the eyes of acceptance and love, you act as your own best friend. 
🔺The results are immediate. You move from a place of judgment to a place of confidence and courage. 
🔻No, occasional negative thoughts don’t mean that you don’t love yourself. 
🔻It’s how you handle them that creates your overall EXPERIENCE (and results!)


What you see in the mirror is who you are on the inside.

  • Your programming creates your IDENTITY.
  • Your identity creates your BELIEFS.
  • Your beliefs create your DECISIONS
  • Your decisions create your ACTIONS
  • Your actions constitute your BEHAVIOR
  • Your behavior shapes your habits
  • Your habits, actions and behavior create your results.
  • Every aspect of our wellbeing is interconnected. How we do one thing is how we do everything!

If you dread letting one more year/month and day pass by without feeling as your most empowered, confident and self-assured self, now it’s the perfect time to schedule an orientation call with me and learn what`s stopping you from achieving the life of your heart`s deepest desires.

Are You An Active Listener?

Are You An Active Listener?

Deep Listening is the key to having a profound understanding of your correspondent and their deepest truths, challenges, pains, and aspirations.

Very often, it is not what people say to us but they way they say it: their intonation, body language and emotional presence.

When you are able to deeply listen, your own “monkey mind” goes quiet. Your own thoughts fade away. You just hear and absorb what the person is saying.

Why is the skill of being an active listener so important to your relationships? Because this way the person you are communicating with feels heard , and being heard is the experience of being acknowledged, respected, and accepted.

When you listen actively to what the other person is saying you are able to understand what they are telling you without referring to your own experience or bias.

Remember, it is about their experience, and not yours. More often than not, the people we are talking to desire to share what’s going on with them, without necessarily looking for advice.

Sharing is Caring.

Here are two exercises that teaches you how to practice listening without the desire to affect or respond to what the other person has to say – JUST LISTENING.

EXERCISE 1: MIRROR LISTENING

Mirror Listening is a technique to help you stay focused and “tuned in” when listening to other people. When you do mirror listening, you’ll be able to be present in the moment and tune out the distractions around you, as well as the distracting thoughts and feelings within.

Instructions

To get started with mirror listening, start by choosing a youtube video or a talk radio show program.

(1) Choose one person’s voice and start whispering the speaker’s words at the same time the speaker says them. (So that you are mirroring, not repeating after them.) Mirror everything they say, word-for-word.

(2) After you get the first part down, try leaving out the sound. Just move your mouth, mirroring the words at the same time they are being said.

(3) Finally, mirror the words in your mind only. You’ll hear in your mind how your thoughts mirror what is being said, word-for-word, without spoken sound or physical movement.

Give this exercise some time, as it will take practice and effort.

One last thing – after you practice the exercise above, try mirror listening with an actual person with whom you are having a conversation. Notice how the experience is different.

Here’s a practical way to use this exercise in the “real world.” When you are talking with someone and your mind starts to wander off or get distracted, try mirror listening for 20 or 30 seconds, and watch how you tune right back to the speaker.

EXERCISE 2: DYAD LISTENING

Dyads are structured listening exercises between people working in pairs. Dyads are an exceptionally deep and safe method of communication that fosters trust, honesty, and connection between people. This is largely due to the strength of the listening role. The basic premise of dyad work is that communication between any two people can be incredibly powerful and healing, and can be used for transformational purposes.

During a dyad, the person listening is attentive to what their partner is communicating while remaining almost completely silent. The listener does not respond or react to what their partner says, either through comments or non-verbal cues such as smiling or nodding.

Instructions:

Sit down with a partner at a comfortable distance apart, facing each other. You can sit on chairs or sit on cushions on the floor. The partners should be at the same height though. Sit with your back straight and with your head balanced above your spine. Keep your body relaxed and your breathing free and easy.

Listening partner’s role:

  • ·  Keep attention on the speaking partner
  • ·  Listen to what the other says
  • ·  Don’t interrupt the other
  • ·  Make no critical judgments of the other
  • · Don`t make assumptions, just listen
  • · Abstain from giving unsolicited advice
  • · Remember that it is not about you, but about them
  • · Even if you are not sure what to say, be emotionally present
