Radical Self Care: Getting what YOU need everyday

Many of us fall into the pattern of taking care of everyone else first.   This program is designed to help you get back in touch with your body and what YOU need for optimal health.   What signs and signals have you had to ignore to keep up your pace? We’ll use mindfulness techniques to increase body awareness and help you get in touch with cues such as hunger, satiety, stress, emotion and fatigue. We will work on accepting where you are right now while tapping into your strengths to help you get where you want to be.   You will gain insight into what might be holding you back from achieving your health goals.  You will also learn tools to get at the roots of your behavior and strategies to help you follow your intuition toward more nourishing health habits.

Core Learning Areas
Each week we will focus on listening to our internal cues, aligning with our strengths and honoring our bodies for optimal health.  The following areas are core to the learning experience:

  • Mindful Eating: And the 5 Senses
  • Listening to our Bodies: Understanding Hunger and Satiety
  • Behaviour Change: Using Our Strengths for Success
  • Rituals for Health: What is Serving You? What is Not?
  • The Hidden Gift of Failure and Cutting Yourself Some Slack
  • Keeping Health on your Radar: The Power of Intention

Desired Outcomes:
Changing your perspective on self care changes everything.  Your past struggles will begin to fade as you refocus on the new habits you are drawn to.  You will no longer have to create goals for yourself that are based on willpower.   Instead you will be able to set yourself up for success by grounding your new habits in your signature strengths.
