Flowers and chocolates are great, but most of the time material gifts do not make us feel nearly as good as a compliment from a loved one. Even better than a compliment is support. You are on your own individual journey into mindful eating, but while you work on loving yourself this Valentine’s Day, ask for the gift of support from your loved ones.
This journey into mindful eating that you are on is very personal. It can sometimes be hard to let others in. But when you involve the ones you love in matters going on in your life, you may be surprised how much it helps. Chances are they have seen you go on and off the diet roller coaster so many times and they will be excited to see you embracing a diet-free approach. They don’t want to see you trapped by a “meal plan” and they certainly don’t want to see you disappointed and not able to reach your goals.
So this Valentine’s Day let your loved ones in on the new, diet-free you. Ask them for support while you travel the road to mindful eating. Ask them what is it they love about you and let this remind you of the wonderful person that you are. Love and emotion is a powerful thing, and the support that comes with loving relationships will certainly help you succeed!
Let me know what your loved ones had to say about your new diet-free mindset!
