“Why do I eat, and eat, and EAT and never feel satisfied??”
This used to be the *question of the day*, EVERY day.
I was living under the assumption that once I got my diet under control and my “dream body” emerged, life would become all the magic I was waiting for it to be.
Of course, I’m well aware now that it doesn’t work that way.
Even when, in my many intense diet cycles I DID lose a bunch of weight, it was never enough.
I lived in constant fear of putting the weight back on.
Nourishing ourselves with food is SO important but if that’s the only nourishment we’re getting, even the wildest binge won’t feel like enough.
My old-self was obsessed with “upgrading”, “cleansing”, “bulletproofing”, and “detoxing” my body – and jeez louise, that can be a full time job!
These days I swap “superfoods” for much more nutrient dense choices like CONNECTION, CREATIVITY, PRESENCE, EXPLORATION, EXPRESSION, and CURIOSITY.
Or rather, maybe these ARE my superfoods!
I make an effort to feed ALL parts of myself.
And since everything is connected, my body responds to this too and feels all the more strong, healthy, and capable than it did when I was focused on FOOD fixing everything.
So what does “nourishment” mean to you?
How can you nourish yourself in non-food related ways?
