Happy to Announce My New Arrival!
An excerpt from Indulge Your Way to Healthy:
You can heal your body. You can feel good.
The extent of healing will be different for each one of you. It may depend on factors like how committed you are, your age, and your personal health struggle. But I am confident you have the power to make improvements, no matter what.
You. Have. Power.
Here is what else you need to know.
You can’t teach anyone what they don’t want to know. That’s a big one to remember. If you are reading this book because you want to make changes in your own life or in the lives of your young children, then I am really excited for you and I hope that much of this book resonates with you as others have for me.
But if you’re looking to change a partner, a friend, or someone in your family, stop and take a deep breath. It’s not that you can’t influence positive change. You can! But the best way we influence change is by modeling it. As Mahatma Ghandi said, “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” Each of us is on her own path and as difficult as it may be to watch ones we love travel their own, we can only support when it’s asked for and continue working toward our own most authentic self.
Perhaps the most important lesson I've learned that I want to impart to you is that living a full and healthy life has to do with more than food. You can eat broccoli all day, or take supplements, or try every cleanse you read about, but if a relationship is failing, you hate your job, or you feel a void that can’t seem to be filled, then none of that will make much of a difference. At least not for long.
That is why this guide was created. Food is important and the way we feed our bodies will impact the energy needed to make lifestyle changes in the first place, but it's the emotional, mindful, and spiritual changes you make that will determine how sustainable your new habits are.
5 Minute Meditation
We are great at filling every minute of our lives with activity and distraction, but when we are always on in this way, we never get to tune in to the thoughts and emotions that may lie underneath our habits and behaviors. Meditation helps us to find that sub-level frequency.
Even 5 minutes of meditation can help to soothe your body and mind, creating space to just be, right where you are, as you are. I wanted you to experience that because you deserve to feel this way, even for a few minutes, every day. Enjoy.
Meditation for Moms
For all moms and caregivers out there, this 5-minute meditation is for you, because you deserve a few minutes to not be doing laundry, or cleaning, or wiping dirty bums.
