The new year is here. Some people love it. Some people hate it. Some people don’t care. Wherever you stand, I want to give you something to think about.
In our culture, the focus is primarily on more. More money. More material items. More accomplishments. More strategies to optimize your time. More ways to be happy. When it comes to health and nutrition: More information. More diets to try. More ways to lose weight. More products and supplements. More ways to be healthy.
This creates a shitstorm of external and internal noise. It adds stress, confusion, and doubt to our decision-making around our food choices and health. This noise interferes and breaks the trust between our brain and body. It clouds our innate ability to choose things that nourish us and make us feel good.
Take a moment to reflect on this. Are you exhausted by the never-ending push to be healthy? Is your brain overloaded from the dizzying amount of nutrition information available? Do you try to do too much and continually find yourself back at square one when it comes to your health goals? Do you feel like you don’t trust your body?
Has the more mentality empowered you? Has it made your life better? I’d guess your answer is no, and you aren’t alone in that.
Maybe it’s time you do less.
Less reliance on external validation that you’re doing the “right” things for your health. Less focus on weight as an indicator of health. Less time researching the newest strategies, products, or supplements. Less focus on body size. Less restriction. Less focus on outcomes and more on the process.
When you do less, you create more capacity to listen, learn, and rebuild trust within your body.
