Handout on will power “body image I wills”
So there you are, friend. My mini compilation of things that aim to send you back toward the path of Self. Is this an exhaustive list of every single thing that might help you reconnect? Hell no! But it might be a start. Even if you’ve tried one of these before, or maybe even if one feels especially uncomfortable or hard - I encourage you to try it out. Worst case scenario, things stay exactly as they are right now.
Other reflection questions: What’s been holding you back lately? Where could you use an extra bit of encouragement? Who supports you? How will you know when you’re off-track from your intention? What’s your big WHY for doing this?
I’m rooting for you.
p.s. What kind of person would I be to suggest this and then not do the work myself? I’m going on a journey of my own this month - to reconnect with my Self, nature, and whatever else might come my way. I’m still (loosely) available by email and am taking a few discovery calls, but will be traveling and living out of a van for the next 30 days! See you in October, friends!
