Video: Stop stressing over food by strengthening your mind-body connection

your mind body connection is important for a healthy relationship with food

Building trust and connection with your body helps you stop stressing over food.

Search the internet and you will find many promises of the perfect foods you must eat to help you feel good around food. But the proof is in the sheer number of diets popping up each year - they don't work. There's nothing wrong with you, or us humans in general, it's just that it isn't about the food. At least not really, we are much more complex than that. The number one most important step to stop stressing around food is improving your mind-body connection.


Improving your mind-body connection is learning to hear and trust the communication your body sends you to let you know what it needs to feel it's best. This involves when and what to eat, when you need to rest or move and all your emotional needs too. You must learn to work with your body instead of fighting against it if you want to feel good around food.


Only when you have developed this connection can you begin to use food knowledge to support you to feel good around food.


Here's a video to help you learn how building your mind-body connection can help you stop stressing over food.




If food feels stressful with or without a diet, then this is the important step you have been missing.
