Is it time to shed pandemic weight, both physically and emotionally? 

If you are tired of comfort eating and need a fresh start, this workshop is for you!

Participants will be:

  • introduced to new healthy life-enhancing rituals, which will replace the ritual of comfort eating during stressful times.
  • encouraged to take charge of their wellbeing and to replace comfort eating with calming and comforting rituals.
  • guided to practice mindful self-compassion exercises.
  • invited to journal about what to let go of and what to bring into this new year.
  • empowered to discover their “true path” and to design small action steps, which can easily be implemented into their daily routine.
  • gain a deeper understanding about cognitive-behavioral strategies and mindfulness practices.
  • sharing their story with like-minded souls, who are ready to shift to a higher level of awareness and greater self-care, and to fill their inner self-love reservoir.
  • assured that this will be a “safe space” for connecting and sharing.
