There’s a lot of misunderstandings around health behaviors and these misunderstandings are what is causing us to be on and off of our habits that we know make us feel damn good.
Anything we teach inside Undiet Your Life is counterculture and revolutionary because that’s what we need as women socialized to diet & wellness culture to liberate ourselves and create our best life.
And how we think about health-promoting habits also needs to change.
Shift #1 Health is not a moral obligation
Contrary to what diet & wellness culture and may have taught you, health is not a moral obligation, just like being in a particular body size or weight.
You are free to decide how and if you will pursue health.
This shift is most important in our ability to experience ease in creating new health behaviors. Moving from “I have to” to “I choose to” moves us into being in a position of autonomy and power over our reality.
Shift #2- Health is more than physical health
As women socialize to the thin ideal, we have been socialized that we are our body and that our health is the outcome of our physical body. That leads to poor mental and emotional health resulting in challenging behavioral patterns.
Health comprises four bodies: Mental, Emotional, Spiritual and Physical. All equally important and worthy of the investment of our resources
Shift #3 Health is not a destination
When we move away from health as a signal of our worthiness, we can appreciate our health as a resource.
Health is a state of adaptation that allows you to adequately cope with all demands of daily life AND create your best life, the one you choose to live.
