Do you make time for pleasure in your life? I’m talking about pleasure from sources that don’t involve food.

One of the reasons so many people are overweight and have difficulty dropping those extra pounds for good is that they allow food to be too big a source of joy in their life. Consequently, they rely on food and don’t develop other sources of pleasure.  

For some people, food is their main source of joy. While food is certainly pleasurable, and as foodies, we love food, it is not healthy to have food as your only real source of joy.

Listen to this week’s episode to learn about these two important components of self-care:

(1) adding more healthy pleasure into your life and

(2) self-compassion.

In this episode, I discuss the Denial-Binge Cycle, the Cycle of Diminishing Self Care and a few other vicious cycles that keep you stuck.

What gets in the way of you accessing these simple pleasures? What can you do to prevent that from happening?

Listen to find out how you can include more pleasure in your life that isn’t food, and how this can actually help you melt down to your naturally healthy size.
