How Are Your Feet Feeling?

How Are Your Feet Feeling?

Have you noticed them lately? How are they feeling? 


Whenever I check in with my body, my feet tell me they need attention. They've been cold, achey, tender, sore. I've been blaming the cold stone floors of my new house, but after a few conversations, I'm not so sure anymore. 

In the past few days, I've spoken to a few clients and girlfriends who have serendipitously been feeling called to tune into their feet, as well.

Here's what we've pondered together: there may be something the Earth has to tell us.

If You Want To Stop Bingeing, You’ve Got To Start Living

There were moments when I would come home exhausted, depleted. 

I would flop down on the couch, floor, bed—my body numb with exhaustion, my eyes barely able to open. My whole body was craving rest, stillness, and yet a voice in my mind would say: “Popcorn. Chocolate. Ice cream.” I would ignore it for a while until it got so loud and annoying, I had to get up. The pull was irresistible.
 
Completely exhausted and angry with myself, I’d stumble my way into the kitchen to make myself whatever my mind was incessantly trying to tell me to eat. Or I would eat a healthier version of it, or carrots, or rice cakes… But in the end, I’d always end up following the initial craving, even if it meant driving to get it. Even the next day.
 
I’d eat half-awake, like a zombie in the kitchen. Standing hunched over the counter or at the open fridge. Eating to quiet the nagging voice in my head, angry at the fact that I once again fell prey to it.

5 Tips To Having The Most Body-Loving Holiday Ever!

It can be easy during the holiday season to fall out of sync with our body's natural rhythms. 

Especially if you're an empath like me and sensitive to the energies of other people, you may find yourself overwhelmed by parties, dinners, and other social celebrations. 

And—if you're like me—being overwhelmed in an environment packed with yummy treats can easily lead to overeating and body-hating. 

The following tips are for you if:

  • You are on a path of loving your body and want to stay connected to yourself over the holiday season
  • Your body's voice tends to get drowned out by the voices of the people around
  • You’ve decided to lose weight in the New Year, so the holiday season is "f*ck it" time 
  • Food is a big part of family and friend connection, and you don't want to be "rude" by not eating what people give you

I hope the following steps help you have a pleasurable and joyous winter holiday season. I also hope they show you that a deep connection to your body doesn't mean you can't have fun!
