049: Allowing Happiness
It may sound strange but a common thread I have witnessed (and personally experienced) with women who are trying to reclaim their health, is that they often struggle to allow happiness to enter fully into their life.
Women seem to be really good at sabotaging the “feel good” in their life in one of two ways:
- They are more focused on doing than being; often maintaining schedules that are so busy, they simply do not have the time or awareness to feel happiness.
- They have limiting beliefs around how much happiness they deserve, what is possible for their life, or even the belief that life must always be hard (and so it is).
Many women are especially good at robbing themselves of the joy of food when it comes to their efforts to improve their health.
This episode explores some strategies to help women to embrace the joy of healthy food and to help them build a tolerance for happiness in their lives in general.
