Why a dog with a pacifier in its mouth I hear you wonder? Well, this blog is about self soothing and pacifier came to mind but I did not want the photo of a baby because that is not my point and I thought the dog one was cute.
So, I was thinking the other day of how I always have a mint tea and a square of chocolate at the end of the day when i sit down to watch some television. It all goes together. I am not hungry, I have just has supper. I want the mint tea because it …
CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 4
A bit more on Food addiction and cravings. It is a terrible thing that people who are addicted to food, like I am, do not get a look in really.
We are told to pull ourselves together, to use our willpower. We are told that we are just lazy and to make an effort.
It is all our fault, somehow.
There is no help out there apart from diets and deprivation.
The problem with all of that is that will power does not work, never has and never will.
Do you know why?
Because research …
CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 3
How are you finding the series of blog posts of Food Cravings?
Did I tell you that it is because I knew about the feelings that made me overeat that I started following my own Body Magic Program again in March 2020?
As the world was locking itself up and people were terrified of all sorts of horrible things happening to their families, I thought to myself.
What do I do when I feel anxious/sad/angry?
I eat too much!
Do I want to put on weight again? NO!
So, I started us…
CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 2
I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of Crush your Cravings!
My craving is Cheese, preferably French with may be some sourdough bread! I could eat tons of the stuff if I am upset about something. During my work with EFT Tapping and Cravings, I realized something important. I eat too much of the craved food when I feel out of sorts.
So today, we are going to look at feelings.
Brene Brown will disagree with me but for the sake of simplicity (this is only a one page blog), there are …
I SHALL NOT FEED YOU!
I wonder how you are feeling right now?
I know I am a bit nosy but I thought I would ask. Because frankly things are really really weird, I fear.
Two years ago, our world ended as the Pandemic caused us to become prisoners in our own homes for months on end. No-one seems to be marking this moment.
I am not quite sure that my resilience to stress has recovered.
And now, what with the war in Europe...
Anxiety is everywhere.
Every single person I talk to, every single client, is…
CRUSH YOUR CRAVINGS PART 1
For the next four Mondays, we are going to explore Food Cravings and how to use EFT Tapping to handle them better.
What is your craved food of choice?
And that is only the ones starting with a C!
Do you know anything about EFT Tapping?
If not, here is a quick summary
Emotional Freedom Techniques is an alternative therapy for anxiety, post traumatic stress and also helping you deal with food better.
Tapping on different parts of the face and…
I don't know about you but I am finding it difficult to focus these days and to not get into a state of panic when the tiniest thing goes wrong
or not to randomly lose my temper at the slightest opportunity.
No, I do not think I am going mad, it is just that two years of endless stress have taken their toll.
I keep thinking that I should be feeling fine now that the Restrictions are over in Ireland
they might be over, but people are still getting sick and there are still masks everyw…
January blues. Fancy a story?
And so it starts again, the merry go round of the year.
January is the flattest of times. Yes, we have signed up for the new courses, yes we have stuck bits of paper and photos on our vision boards and yes, we are doing yoga/running/whatever, every day so far but let us be honest, it's only Thursday 6th January and we are already fed up with it all.
Because, well because all the sparkles of Christmas have gone, the pandemic has not, and frankly, we don't know what to do with ourselves.
So what? It's a New Year and?
The other day, the weather person on the television said "The weather on the 1st January 2022 will be very similar to the weather on December 31st".
And here I was thinking that things would be different in 2022...
Not really, just messing with you.
So why on earth is everyone writing down goals, creating vision boards, and making New Year resolutions?
Because that's what we do?
No, because that is what I want you to do
because, if you do,
you will sign up for one of my programs, …
