New Year Be You

I’m sure you’ve all seen Forest Gump – still one of my favourite movies. If you have seen this film, you might remember the scene where Forest visits Jenny in her dormitory at college and she asks him if he’s thought about who he would like to be one day. Forest’s response: ‘Aren’t I going to be me?’

I’ve seen so many articles in the New Year and leading up to the New Year that say something along the lines of ‘New Year, New You’. Are they saying that you are not good enough being who you are? Most of us don’t even know who we are, yet we are still trying to change to be something different. We look for the answers out there, instead of looking within. It’s kind of like exploring outer space when we don’t even know what lies in the deepest depths of our own beautiful oceans on earth.

That is why each New Year so many resolutions are made, but very few hold. We try to work from the outside in: ‘when I have a well-toned body, I will be happy’, ‘when I’ve lost 10kg, I will start to have more fun.’ It actually works the other way round! You can only start to improve yourself once you love and accept who you are right now. Then you are starting from a stable foundation.

My challenge for you this year is to find out who you are. Stop being the person you think you are supposed to be, the person that you think others will like or be impressed by. Then spend all this energy you will be saving, on becoming best you possible!

Why is dieting so bad? As I’ve mentioned previously, most of us are born with the innate ability to know what our bodies need and when. We slowly lose this ability through social conditioning or for other reasons. Some of these reasons being: eating because we are...

Why do we overeat?

Why do we overeat?

What does it mean to overeat? It means to take in more energy than our bodies need. If we are consistently taking in more food than our bodies are using, the extra weight gets stored as fat. This takes us back to our energy equation: energy in (food) > energy out...
