In Week 1, we gently allow ourselves to begin the process of embarking on something new. It can be a scary and exciting time, and we harness that energy into a new action of tracking our food and our mood. We begin to take a look at the food we eat and the way we feel and we make the connection between them.
In Week 2, we go deep into the topic of sugar, learning where it hides, the addictive nature of it, and why we use it to soothe our emotions. We learn powerful strategies to help us reduce our cravings and take back control in our lives.
In Week 3, we learn to harness the power of our brain in order to build momentum. How often have we started something new but not stuck with it? No more! We learn to see around corners and truly move the needle on our health and wellness.
In Week 4, we go below the surface as we look to our life experiences as signposts. We create a life map where we reach back into “little t traumas” that may seem insignificant, but that have impacted our mental, emotional and physical health and habits for perhaps our whole lives.
In Week 5, we go even deeper into our lives as we write our life story, pulling out the most impactful parts that have kept us stuck for too long. We call upon our inner child, letting them know that they are safe, and allow them to heal as our inner parent is able to show up and do the work.
In Week 6, we are half-way through the program, and so it’s a perfect time to reevaluate how far we’ve come and ensure we haven’t allowed Resistance to hold us back. We push through this barrier using simple tools and techniques that really work, and we become stronger in the process.
In Week 7, we examine the way we manage our time, the way we think about our time and we begin to think about the way—and when—we plan to die. Of course none of us knows exactly when we will pass away, but thinking about the way and the age at which we will die, allows us to raise our awareness in the present moment and make choices that will help us live better now, in order to enjoy a healthier tomorrow.
In Week 8, we take a “bird’s eye view” of our lives and we get REAL about how things are actually going. No longer hiding behind “I’m fine” or “It’s fine”, we dig deeper and get incredibly honest about areas of weakness in our lives and where we can infuse more energy.
In Week 9, we get close with our feelings. So often, we can avoid our feelings or perhaps, even have a hard time even recognizing and identifying them. Until we do, though, we can believe we are “angry” or “sad” and act in accordance with those surface-level feelings without delving deeper to understand their actual root cause.
In Week 10, we get moving! We talk about the importance of exercise on our mental, emotional and physical health and we set an intention to move our bodies more for the remainder of our time together.
In Week 11, we learn a simple yet profound process for letting go. So often in life, we can hold on to past resentments, thoughts, beliefs, and habits that simply do not serve us. It’s time to let them go….and we do that starting here.
In Week 12, we tie things up with a bow, go over dozens of lifestyle strategies and supports that have served me well over the years and leave the program with a renewed sense of hope and a plan to live our best lives.
