Have you ever stopped to ponder how many references there are to things we decide are good, lovely, desirable or cute that are all to do with sugar?
“Sugar and spice and all things nice, cute as a box of chocolates, sweet as honey” etc etc
Maybe you’re like me and just find those associations all too irresistible, especially at those tricky times of the day, or when you’re feeling a bit low and just want to reach for the biscuits or the chocolate!
But it’s no wonder we are obsessed with sugar! Our brains are constantly filled with images and associations of it meeting our needs and we want and crave it more and more.
Not only that, but a lot of manufactured foods have extra sugar added to them to make them super palatable, so you are likely to over-eat without even trying. These foods often aren't nutritious and just add to your fat reserves, without benefitting your body. So your weight goes up - which puts you at risk of heart disease, diabetes, tooth decay ...
Maybe you have also noticed how you 'roller coaster' with sugar. Too much of it upsets your body's built-in automatic blood sugar regulation mechanism and you swing between having too high blood sugar levels and too low blood sugar levels. You can feel panicky and anxious or wired after a sugar hit, or tired and sluggish when the effect wears off, setting off the craving again.
Of course, you know this as much as I do.....The big question is, how can you break out of this cycle, cut down your sugar intake, and lead a healthier, more emotionally stable life when it’s soooo hard to kick the habit?
Imagine the you where...
With RTT you can make this a reality...
RTTs ability to rewire the brain’s association and the emotional hold of sugar is super powerful and effective. First by finding your own root cause for your sugar addiction. Then by replacing old images and words with new, more positive and healthy ones WITHOUT all the diets and mustering up the will power....
Sounds too good to be true? Our brains are remarkable in their ability to reshape our thoughts, beliefs and the pictures and words we tell ourselves. And what’s to lose? A few pounds maybe for a truly sweeter looking future!
💕 Take the step to get the body you deserve
If you have those times when you get overwhelmed with strong feelings give this a try.....
Here’s a really useful approach to handling feelings of anger, sadness, jealousy and so much more.
To remember this method, just think of Triple A.
Aware - Take a minute to be fully aware about what you're feeling. You'd be surprised how many people don't do this and act out because they are not fully aware of what they are feeling.
Accept - Even if it seems irrational, accept the way you feel. Even if you can logically think of a reason why you shouldn’t be feeling this way, just accept that you do. That means you are allowed to feel jealous or envious or angry.
Articulate - Say it out loud, to yourself. Articulate what the feeling is. You can do this in private, if it'll make you feel better.
Your feelings are like a class of children all calling out “look at me, listen to me” They want to be listened to and acknowledged. Closing them down doesn’t help them go away.
When you use the triple A approach they will go away very quickly because they have been heard. Try it and share it - the more you do it the easier it will become. ❤️
I like this statement, because it is actually a statement of truth, not of opinion.
It has taken me 49 years to stop looking for the things or people outside of myself who I thought were going to complete me. It took me being in a place of feeling desperate, alone and abandoned before I was ready to really start looking INSIDE me and not just finding out that I was ok, but actually falling in love with who I am. I can honestly say that now life looks totally different. Who I am is different, what I think, how I behave, my relationships. Because from this place of being grounded, we discover what was really true all along...and its the most beautiful and inspiring journey!
Perhaps the most essential thing for you to believe is that you are already enough, just as you are. NO MATTER WHAT. You are inherently enough.
Not once you hit the goal (the weight loss, the wellness, the relationship, the money) you’re after, but right now.
See how that feels to believe in your magnificence before you get the thing you think you need so you can feel enough.
It’s a quiet contentment, an “oh, there’s nothing for me to hustle after in order to feel worthy cause I’m already worthy. I am free to simply just enjoy my existence.”
Then the things you’re after actually come to you more easily cause you don’t NEED them to feel okay. You might want them, but there’s not a heavy attachment. Big difference.
