What’s your favourite Christmas food? What makes your mouth water when you think of it?
I adore Nigella’s ultimate Christmas pudding with organic vanilla ice cream, homemade custard or organic pouring cream or a combo of all three!
Hmmmm – the different flavours – send me out of this world.
I’m a food lover – I feel happy and proud with my relationship with food. I’ve worked at it.
There was a time in my 20’s when I noticed some negative ‘diet’ voices flying about.
These thoughts didn’t make me feel good. I decided to change. I ‘retrained’ my thinking.
Now I help people do the same – so they feel happy and get the health results they desire – this gives them time freedom!
Your entire life changes when you up your nutrition 🙂
It doesn’t matter how much you know about nutrition, you must first work with your mind and get your attitude right.
Now Christmas is the most perfect time to do this.
Here’s my Christmas Mindset Fix:
1. There’s no need to feel powerless over your ability to say no to foods you don’t want to eat
2. If anyone judges you – it’s their problem to deal with that judgement emotion in themselves – not your responsibility at all 🙂
3. Relax and enjoy social occasions but don’t feel compelled to eat or drink everything that is on offer
4. No and smiling – is a complete sentence
5. There will always be food wastage and food shortage in the world – don’t feel bad for leaving food on your plate
Ultimately, food is not good or bad. You choose that judgement thought.
Labelling food as bad – creates negative feelings/energy and disharmony in your body. It’s not healthy – if you do this….and if you want to feel happier….you really need to – let that mindset go.
Rather..(deep moment): Ask yourself – what’s really behind this thinking?
Could it be as simple as – I need help to understand food, to know what to do, I want to believe I can do it?
We eat quite a few times a day – we want to be creating positive feelings every time we eat.
I write this because there are so many people who struggle with food and they tune out at Christmas to avoid the emotional pain.
It doesn’t have to be this way! 🙂
I did a little video for you about this topic click here to watch it:
-Now after you’ve watched this 5 minute video I would like you to take a few minutes to tune in.
-Your goal over the next few weeks is to observe your food attitude (how are you feeling, what are you doing around food). Really watch yourself.
Then ask yourself – is what I am doing – making me happy?
Mentally write down one big thing that you do with food – that you don’t want to any more. It could be that you overeat to please a family member.
Now you know….make a decision, then follow through and change it! Don’t give yourself the excuse of being ‘bad’ with food. Take full responsibility – you can do it!
Well done!! – Awareness and working on yourself is the best Christmas present you could give yourself!
I’d love to chat with you – what do you think would help us all be happier with food over the Christmas period, so we don’t ‘panic diet’ in the New Year? Tell me what you think below 🙂
p.s. Do you know someone who wants help with food this time of year? If so – share this with them 🙂
