The Three Pieces of Behavioral Health Advice Everyone Gets:
“Reduce your stress!"
But we never really hear how to do those things. Sure, there are millions of fitness programs, and boot camps. There millions of people who want to tell us exactly what we're supposed to eat and when. There are more diets than we can count, meal plans, and healthy recipes available every where we look; platitudes about lifestyle changes, thinking positively & self-care are everywhere too.
But there's not a whole lot by way of teaching us how we're supposed to turn those things into reality on a sustainable, long term basis for people who are completely unmotivated and have years or decades of worth of unhealthy habits or sabotaging behaviors wired into their brains.
Below you'll find two different program options to choose from. They're designed to help you build all the three biggest elements of behavioral health: moving more, eating better, and reducing stress in a sustainable, realistic, way using the evidence-based modalities of mindfulness, meditation, cognitive behavioral strategies.
Building a healthier lifestyle and diet-free weight management are absolutely possible.
Healthy Living Made Easy And Sustainable
Eat better, move more, reduce stress and connect -- those are the key elements of healthier living and the behavioural advice we always get from doctors but how? How do you unlearn years of bad habits and relearn a whole new lifestyle in a realistic way that's actually sustainable? With Mindful Movement.
Ditch the Diet Cycle & Heal Your Relationship With Food - Weight & Food Freedom Is Possible
Feeling guilty and ashamed after eating isn't normal, nor is it healthy. Chronic dieting, restriction or bingeing, weight & scale obsessions aren't normal, or healthy either. That war in your head everyday over what you feel like you "should be" eating versus what you actually want to eat isn't normal or healthy either.
But you don't have to be destined to be stuck in those cycles forever. There is hope. Change and freedom is possible — with cognitive eating.
About Our Healthy Living Partner & Your Instructor
A Note From Graham,
For over a quarter of a century I’ve helped people with their health, with or without medications. This has included helping manage their weight. During this time I have come to realize we really aren’t all the same and what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for the next. I've also learned what a huge role our brains play in determining our habits and behaviors and they are what ultimately determine the the results we experience. I definitely see a huge benefit in Roni’s approach in this area.
Roni Davis is an author, coach and speaker who spent many years struggling with her own weight, an eating disorder, depression and an anxiety disorder. She's also been a champion athlete, and spent almost a decade helping people transform their bodies as an award winning personal trainer and nutrition and wellness coach. Her years in the fitness industry, combined with what she learned through her own recovery, have caused her to make a radical shift in beliefs and focus. As a result, she left the fitness industry to become a speaker and mindfulness-based cognitive behavioral coach to help people focus on behavior and habit modification at the brain level. Roni says lasting change to our lifestyle or eating habits requires changing our brains because they control everything. We're pleased to partner with Roni to bring our customers these programs designed to help them move more, eat better, reduce stress and anxiety and improve their relationships with themselves, their bodies and food.
I also see the benefit of managing your medications during a time of weight gain as well as weight loss. If you have been struggling with making healthier lifestyle choices, what you think your ideal weight should be, I encourage you see which program may be right for you or reach out to Roni for help.
NOTE: While counselors or therapists often use CBT to deal with mental illness or a patient’s mental/emotional conditions and/or processing trauma, MBCT & cognitive eating does not. My roll as an MBCT & cognitive eating coach, in its most simple form, is to encourage, coach and/or act as a facilitator of a client’s self-reflection, decision making, planning for the future, and creating life changes. As an MBCT & cognitive eating coach, I am obligated to refer clients in need of mental or physical health therapy to an appropriate licensed professional.
