Take Pause in the Moment before Mindless Eating

2021-06-04T12:59:48-04:00June 4th, 2021|Motivational Letters|

It is so easy, and so common, for us to eat mindlessly.  I may come home and begin eating whatever is available without thoughts about hunger, need and the quality of food I’m eating at the moment. This is especially obvious when we snack in front of the TV.  We snack automatically, distracted by whatever we are watching and end up eating far too much without regard for the consequences of weight gain or impact on our metabolic health. Eating mindfully takes a willingness to sit and slow down; to become aware of the emotions inside of us.  We must [...]

Effective Goal-Setting

2021-05-03T14:21:42-04:00May 3rd, 2021|Motivational Letters|

Goal-setting can be frustrating. This has been especially hard for many of us through the covid-19 pandemic.  Many of us make ‘goals’ or ‘resolutions,’ and then falter before achieving them; this creates a pattern of negative thoughts that make us believe we 'can never accomplish them.' The problem is that we have trouble following a 'self-imposed' goal versus a goal set by our boss, school or profession. (You might study hard to pass a course in school, but be less likely to be diligent about ongoing learning when it's something that is important for you but not imperative.) People who [...]

Focus on Improving One Unnecessary Habit

2021-04-06T06:38:39-04:00April 6th, 2021|Motivational Letters|

I enjoy reading Amy Berger’s twitter feed; she posts her ongoing daily work on improving negative habits that we all have to deal with. As you know, Amy helped write “End your Carb confusion”. She has a masters degree in nutrition. We all think someone else has ‘it all together’; not so. Each one of us battles the food demons, exercise demons, sleep demons or stress demons, daily. Mine would be evening snacking. Every day, my goal is to not eat after 7 pm; I know if I do that, and that alone, at very least my weight is controlled; [...]
