Did you set goals or resolutions for the New Year?

If you did have you managed to stick to them?

Or have you given up?

It’s hard isn’t? The weather is cold, you’re working, looking after children or parents or both. There are only so many hours in the day and you don’t have time to exercise or cook properly. So you leave it to another day.

And you keep getting told that you just need to change your mindset and everything will magically fall in to place.

But you don’t know how to do that, you’ve tried affirmations but you really sure your were doing it right.

The thing is that yes, you do need to change your mindset but the changes need to start in your body.

The body stores all your memories, hurts and traumas, the emotions you haven’t processed because you’re too scared to feel them again. This causes energy blockages and prevents the body functioning as well as it can so it sends you signals to get you to process the emotions you’ve stored.

We ignore these signals or squash down the emotions with food, alcohol, nicotine or drugs. 

The body doesn’t give up it keeps sending signals and you end up with a physical illness or anxiety and depression or all three.

So how do we solve this?

We do it by getting back in touch with the body. Learning to love and respect it. 

When we respect the body we will listen to it, we will process those emotions and we won’t be reaching for whatever junk we were using to supress them.
