Your Health Is Not a Project

Great news – you are NOT a project!

What do you mean, Dan?

If you are tired of feeling like you’re constantly battling your body, read on, this is for you!

Your Health Is Not a Project

Many of us approach our health with a “project” mentality – diets, unsustainable workout plans, and the pressure to reach a specific goal as fast as possible.

Because as soon as we “get there”, THEN all our problems will vanish and we will finally be happy/fulfilled/energized/lovable/no longer lacking anything.

(If you believe that, you’re dreaming)

But what if there were a better way to build a better relationship with your body, and not turn your health into a project?

Your body is not your enemy

Imagine your body as another person. Your best friend, your partner, not your enemy. This email will help you shift your mindset and build a healthy, sustainable relationship with your best friend, your body.

Step One: Ditch the project mentality and focus on building a strong foundation.

How?  Think of it like any relationship:

Communication is key.

Pay attention to your body’s signals – hunger cues, fatigue, aches and pains. It’s talking to you!

Respect your body’s wisdom. It’s working hard to keep you alive, and so far it’s done an amazing job. For that it deserves thanks!

Mutual Respect: Nourish your body with healthy foods, and move your body in ways you enjoy. It’s the only place you have to live!

Fun: Don’t make everything a chore! Find activities you love, like dancing, cooking, or playing games.

By building trust and communication with your friend, you can:

  • Heal emotional eating patterns
  • Feel more motivated to make healthy choices
  • Enjoy a more peaceful relationship with food – and with yourself!

Relationship First

Goals are great, but they come later. Focus on building a healthy foundation first. You have to build a healthy relationship with your friend before you can take a trip together!

When your relationship with your body is strong, you’ll be ready to tackle any goal – and in a loving and sustainable way.

Just like brushing your teeth is a daily habit, taking care of your body is too. It’s about self-care, not punishment.

This journey isn’t always easy. There will be uncomfortable conversations with yourself, but you don’t have to go it alone. Reach out for support – a coach, another friend, or your therapist can be a valuable resource.

Focus on progress, not perfection. There will be setbacks, but don’t stop trying. There is never a journey where nothing goes wrong or isn’t what you hoped. There is never a journey where nothing unexpected happens.

You deserve a healthy and happy relationship with your body!
