We all have those foods that we love but know are probably more nourishing to our minds than our bodies. I’m talking about those cookies, cakes, ice-cream, donuts or in my case wine and croissants.
In one of our sessions my client told me, “Hannah, I can’t have chocolate at home because if it’s there I’ll eat the entire block in one sitting – I just cant stop!”
Anyone else relate?
It took a bit of convincing but I asked her to buy a block of her favourite chocolate and told her to try making a few simple mindset tweaks. Later that week I followed up to see how she went and she told me:
“Mindful eating has been successful, I’ve had chocolates sitting in the fridge that I haven’t even felt like touching!”
So what’s the trick? What were these little mindset changes that are so successful?
