TAKE CHARGE WITH MINDFULNESS. DIETS FAIL US. Our relationship with food is interconnected with all our human needs, so it is no wonder that diets don't work. In our struggle against weight gain, obesity, and disease, we try to listen to our brains when we really need to listen to our bodies. It’s easy to get lost in the usual diet advice on what to eat and what not to eat. But this tired old process quickly becomes an unhealthy war against our own bodies. What’s missing in our quest for health? Feeling nourished. The answer is not out there—it is inside each of us. Our bodies know best. Jeanette shows us how we can learn to listen to our bodies and become empowered to take charge of our self-care habits, master daily stress AND thrive while we are busy. SELF-CARE IS THE BEST HEALTH-CARE. To change the way we eat, we first need to change the way we think about getting healthy and losing weight. Food is so much more that what is on our plate and nourishment is more than good nutrition. Self-care is often dead last on our list of priorities. Yet if it could add handling stress better, increased productivity, improved efficiency, empowered feelings and happiness, wouldn’t we? Jeanette shows us how to put self-care first to improve our wellbeing. YOU CAN’T TAKE CARE OF THINGS UNTIL YOU TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF. Our food is not just our basic nutrients to get us through the day. It is also our tool box for crafting our daily wellbeing and our medicine cabinet for taking charge of our future health. Jeanette shows us how to use mindfulness and self-compassion to change the way we eat.
