Do you obsess over when, what, and how much to eat? Are you afraid that if you start eating, you won't stop? What if you can't trust your body to tell you when you're hungry/full?
It's hard. I know because I've been there before. When we've been at war with our bodies, we become disconnected. But, unfortunately, this disconnection sometimes causes us to push past pain, injury and eat our emotions.
After chronic dieting, restricting, or binge-eating, we can't feel our hunger and fullness. Of course, it doesn't mean that anything is broken. But, we can learn to hear these signals and trust our bodies again. I've done it, and I've seen how this transforms how the women I work with experience their lives.
"I was eating my emotions, afraid of certain foods, and eating out of control. I wasn't sure that it was possible to make a positive and lasting change in my relationship with my body, food and myself. Now, my world of food has opened up. I trust my body and its wisdom to communicate with me."

I spent years not trusting my body and was afraid that I'd never be able to stop once I started eating. It was a constant struggle. Being able to listen to our body means developing awareness. This awareness is essential when healing your relationship with food and your body.
One tool that radically changed my ability to tune in was yoga nidra meditation. This is just one technique I use with my clients to help them trust and feel confident in their bodies. Nidra works subconsciously to heighten sensory awareness reconnecting us with our body.
Practice this Yoga Nidra regularly and start to reclaim the life that chronic dieting has stolen from you.
