How Emotional Eating Comes To Your Rescue: Self-Compassion As The Antidote To Bust Down Your Binges


The multi-billion dollar diet industry has most people hoodwinked into believing that the way to lose weight and get healthier is by taking a bootstrap approach and whipping themselves back into shape with a diet. But in all of the 34 years when I was a dieter, the most valuable lesson I learned is that diets just don't work for the majority of people. Why? Because food is not the issue. It doesn't matter if you set an intention to eat a huge naked salad, a pound of steamed broccoli and a 3 oz chicken breast for dinner. You can be sure that when life knocks you down, your good intentions are going to go straight to hell and you may just end up in a heap on the kitchen floor shoveling ice cream into your mouth, trying to stop the tears.The foods you eat are not what you should be trying to manage. It's those hell and back moments that are probably keeping you overeating.

Honor Your Emotions

I sometimes find it challenging to honor (and actually feel) my own feelings – especially if what I feel seems to be at odds with other people, or my emotions don’t seem to be “appropriate” to the situation.  While I’m not someone who tends to hold back sharing my honest opinions, desires, and feelings and, over the years, I’ve gotten quite a bit of feedback from people close to me about talking too much, dominating situations or conversations, and being selfish – underneath all of this is a deep fear of certain emotions or that my feelings aren’t as important as other people’s.

You're Exactly Where You're Meant To Be - Feel Good About Yourself And Your Life Now

Almost every person I meet suffers from the “I am not where I am supposed to be” syndrome. This video is medicine from my heart to yours so that you can stop running this story in your brain and body (it’s a downer and it keeps you from experiencing the dreams and desire you have) and so you can start seeing and feeling the truth – that you are exactly where you are meant to be, and every day you have the opportunity to become more and more manifest as the fully expressed, free, and loved you.

Will You Choose Bitterness, Or Love?

bitterness or love

Life can be pretty tough at times, right?

The person that you thought to be amazing, turns out to be not as awesome as you thought.  The golden opportunity that you thought was a level up, didn’t quite work out.  The person who you thought to be trustworthy, isn’t.

Where Did You Go Now?

Where Did You Go

By: Jenni Bevill

The last time I sat down to write a blog post was on March 12th.  It is now September. Even as I begin to type this my heart is fluttering like a butterfly on crack. There were times over the last few months that I thought I'd never write again. Why?

Compassion. A Waste Of Your Time?

Compassion. A waste of your time?

Compassion: Deep awareness of the suffering of another accompanied by the wish to relieve it. (the free dictionary.com)

Often in my articles I quote scientific studies to show proof that something has worked with a certain population. This morning I just don't feel like doing that. I imagine I could find a study or two related to what I'm going to talk about, but no, not today. Today I'm not going to give you any proof. I'm going to ask you to consider taking a leap of faith; at least for your own good.

Anti-Aging Diet For Your Skin

Anti-aging Diet

By: Ella James

It is often said that how we look is a product of what we have been eating all along. We can’t control our age, actually we have no authority over that. However, we can definitely control how we look by simply observing what we eat. Eating healthy is nothing but the key to ageing gracefully.

Happiness And Its Many Health Benefits Are Not Exclusive

“Recently, a critical mass of research has provided what might be the most basic and irrefutable argument in favor of happiness,” declares Kira Newman in her article on Cal Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center website. “Happiness and good health go hand-in-hand. Indeed, scientific studies have been finding that happiness can make our hearts healthier, our immune systems stronger, and our lives longer.”
