Here are 3 healthy living tips, 2 book recommendations (one self-improvement and one fun), and 1 journal prompt to ponder this week!
*TBJ = Tips, Books, Journal Prompt
☀️ 3 things you can do today to feel more in control of food:
- Eat when you feel hungry (regardless of what the clock says)
- Eat real nourishing and filling meals
- Tell that judgmental voice in your head to GTFO
☀️ Afraid to stop counting calories in fear of ‘losing control’? HARD TRUTH: if you’re binge eating, repeatedly overeating, or constantly obsessing over food, are you really ‘in control’ now?
☀️ 5 things you can thank your body for today (even if you don't love it): thank your body for…
- Allowing me to taste – taste chocolate, pizza, and all the other delicious foods that are so yummy
- Allowing me to hug – to hug my partner, my family, my pets, and all the other people I love
- Allowing me to laugh – and to smile, and to experience joy
- Allowing me to experience today – whether its a great day, or not, thank you for allowing me to be here
- Still being here, even after everything I've put you through – because you didn't deserve that and I am so grateful to still have you with me
Friends.. FRIENDS, I have a story to tell you. I always struggled with relationships growing up – choosing people with SO MANY RED FLAGS, yet ignoring everyone because I thought I could change them 😳 I went back to therapy to specifically talk about this and she recommended I read this book. CHANGED. MY. LIFE. I am not kidding, I met my husband a few months after as I completely altered the way I approached relationships knowing about my attachment style.
Whether you are single or in a relationship – learning your attachment style is a MUST for healthy relationships! Could not recommend this book more!
Quick Synopsis (from Amazon): Rachel takes the same commuter train every morning and night. Every day she rattles down the track, flashes past a stretch of cozy suburban homes and stops at the signal that allows her to daily watch the same couple having breakfast on their deck. She's even started to feel like she knows them. Jess and Jason, she calls them. Their life—as she sees it—is perfect. Not unlike the life she recently lost.
And then she sees something shocking. It's only a minute until the train moves on, but it's enough. Now everything's changed. Unable to keep it to herself, Rachel goes to the police. But is she really as unreliable as they say? Soon she is deeply entangled not only in the investigation but in the lives of everyone involved. Has she done more harm than good?
✏️ Is there anything I am currently doing that is making life harder than it needs to be?
Is there anything I could do instead to simplify?

🎙 PPS – Click HERE to hear me answer the question: ‘Hi, Ryann! I have a question. I have a really hard time eating intuitively when I'm at a party with friends and there's snacks. I cannot stop eating chips and peanuts, even if I'm full. Do you have any advice for that? I love your content, thanks for everything you do ♥️‘
