Release Emotional Weight to Release Body Weight

How many people vow every New Year to lose weight? What if your weight doesn’t have anything to do with food? What if it has to do with all of the emotional baggage you’ve been carrying around for years? What if it has manifested itself as excess pounds on your body? If you have deep psychological scars from your childhood or some other traumatic event in your life, your extra weight can be acting as ‘pounds of protection’ that won’t leave you until you resolve your issues.

7 Ways to Let Go Of Toxic People

Toxic people are all around you. The most prevalent are family, friends, bosses, and co-workers. Their negativity can infect your mind, body, and soul and multiply like cancer!

Overcome the Effects of Domestic Violence From Your Childhood

Those who grew up within an environment filled with domestic violence (I did) could have scars that run deep. The emotional, mental, and physical trauma of childhood that was filled with abuse will wreak havoc on your life if you don’t process what happened to you. You’ll self-sabotage yourself in many ways from becoming a ‘people pleaser’ to becoming co-dependent. You’ll stay in a vicious cycle until you decide to break it. Have the courage to face your inner demons and free yourself from the bondage of domestic violence. Don’t you owe it to yourself?

Addictions Hurt More Than Just the Addict – How to Recover From Living With an Alcoholic

If you live with or have lived with an alcoholic (my father was an alcoholic), you can recover from it. Addiction can hurt you more than you think. Remember, you can’t fix a person. Your partner, spouse, parent, or friend must admit they have an addiction. Most alcoholics are in denial. They can’t recognize and see they have a problem. However, you can take control of your life and heal from alcoholism. If you had a parent (or both) that was an alcoholic, it wasn’t your fault. They had issues that had nothing to do with you. Chances are they had issues within their childhood that weren’t resolved which led them to drink. Whatever you do, get help. Join groups, journal, and get counseling because you can recover from living with an alcoholic.

5 Ways to Use Affirmations When Dealing With a Negative Body Image

Many people, especially women, have a negative body image. I struggled with this for years. While I was growing up, I heard the following from family members, “Why are you so fat? Why can’t you lose weight? Why can’t you be slim like your sister? You have a pretty face, it’s too bad you’re fat.” Do you know what this does to a child’s self-esteem? To say that my childhood was awkward is an understatement! The good news is as adults we can ‘shake off’ what family, friends, strangers, etc. said to us and cultivate a healthy body image. Learn to love your body by using affirmations. Over time, you’ll begin to see your body in a new light and so will others. Remember, whatever you put out into the universe will come back to you.
