When we experience the pure bliss and peace of new romantic love, that is the impact of primary nourishment. No kind of food, no matter how fancy, can replace the full-body feelings and distractions of young love. And what about your career? Have you ever ‘lost yourself’ in the middle of a work project? Speaking from experience, I can tell you that passionate entrepreneurs are fueled by their work.
“The excitement and rapture of daily life can feed us more completely than any food,” says the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
Consider with me the opposite circumstances to childhood thriving, young love, or a passionate work life. Perhaps you can recall a time when you were in a blue or bored mood? How about a period in your life when you felt trapped by low self-esteem? At times like this, does the food you eat become your focus? No matter how much you ate, you never felt satisfied and were always thinking about foods you craved. Many people nurture themselves with food when emotional, physical, spiritual, and intellectual needs go unmet. Many people overeat because their lives lack purpose, excitement, or new challenges. Has that ever happened to you? Now is the right time to reinvigorate loving self-care.
Holistic health coaches teach their clients that primary nourishment goes beyond the plate, and turning to food to fill the holes in our lives does not solve problems–it adds problems.
As you look at this list of primary foods that fuel a thriving lifestyle, you might start hearing a little voice in your head telling you falsely that “This won’t work for me.” Like everyone, there are many experiences from the past that lead us all to believe in limitations. Some clients tell me it feels like there are many “selves” inside of their one life. On days when the little voice, often called the egoic mind, thinks it needs to be in charge so that we can remain safe, it begins the process of talking us out of taking action toward primary nourishment.
Another common experience is to notice a big difference between how we conduct our work and financial lives, and how we conduct our food lives. No matter the success achieved in some areas of life, healthy eating often feels like an impossible dream. What is unhealthy seems good and what is healthy seems boring. This kind of confusion goes beyond the logical mind, so I won’t expect you to now read a lot of biology about macronutrients! All of the menu items on this holistic health list can become sustainable primary nourishment for you because fear messages from ego can be transformed by the energy of self-love and self-care.
What is the next step for anyone wanting to nourish their life using this holistic menu? During the “Just a Taste” strategy sessions I offer for phone coaching, my clients and I revisit many of the habits and notions that now either cause illness or healing in their physical body. Perhaps you’d like to have one of those conversations with me? In the meantime, here are my Eight Holistic Ideas for you to begin thinking about as you transform fear to self-care, and reach toward a life fueled on primary nourishment.
What would be most helpful to you today? Perhaps your strategy is to print off this page and read it again later. I often do that, too! Maybe you’d like to call a friend you’ve lost touch with and make a plan to catch up? Both of you likely have news to share. Or, how about you look into what it’s like to work with a compassionate holistic health coach? Sometimes talking to a kind stranger about work/life/nourishment balance is the best place to start. If you would like to apply for a FREE, no obligation JUST A TASTE phone session with me, I’m happy to hear from you!
