Wanting a 𝒑𝒐𝒔𝒊𝒕𝒊𝒗𝒆 𝒓𝒆𝒍𝒂𝒕𝒊𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒉𝒊𝒑 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝒇𝒐𝒐𝒅 often needs to start with having a positive relationship with yourself!!
Do you love yourself right now or does the sight of your reflection in the mirror make you cringe with embarrassment and shame?
Now it’s not easy to move from self-loathing to being besties with yourself overnight but yoga can help you find acceptance of yourself and your body!!
𝙔𝙤𝙜𝙖 is a practice of getting to know your body, mind and soul, in doing so you are able to connect with your true self. As you uncover more layers of yourself, you are able to find more acceptance and love for yourself and your body.
Yoga becomes a 𝙨𝙪𝙥𝙥𝙤𝙧𝙩 𝙨𝙮𝙨𝙩𝙚𝙢, your body becomes stronger and your understanding of your thought and mind deepens. The more you commit to your yoga practice, the more you will see things shift for you.
Yoga is not just a physical practice, it consists of movement, breath-work, meditation and mindfulness. If you want to heal your relationship with yourself and food, incorporating yoga into your daily life can be an easy resource for you.

🧘♀️Quick breath work before getting out of bed.
When we wake up we send out minds and thoughts straight into our busy to-do lists, this heightens our stress levels which will lead to cravings later in the day. Starting with a 2-5 min breathing exercise will let you start your day feeling calmer and less likely to face plant into a bag of cookies later in the day.
🧘♀️Be mindful during the day
Practice mindful eating, be present when you speak to friends and family, check-in with how you are feeling on a regular basis. Being mindful with how you are feeling will often help you overcome the urge to overeat.
🧘♀️Attend a yoga class after work
This will help you decompress your stresses from the day, making you more tolerable to your emotions and your body
🧘♀️Short meditation before bed
Set yourself up for a good night’s rest with 5-15 min of meditation and journaling before going to sleep. This will help calm your mind and understand where you might have been triggered during the day. Switch on some music or find a guided meditation that will get your body and mind into a state off rest. Body scan meditations can be very useful to release self-judgment.
