Stress-eating, beaches & koalas 🐨

April 05, 2019

​I’m writing to you from beautiful Bondi Beach in Sydney, Australia. This trip has been a dream of mine for 15 years, and I am loving every second of it! ​

On the plane ride here, I sat next to a really nice Irish guy who was afraid of flying. He was especially anxious during take-off and landing, so I tried to chat him up to keep his mind off of the fear.

I, on the other hand, am cool as a cucumber when I fly. Once I’m on the plane, I’m totally fine, but the weeks before a trip I am a ball of anxiety. 

There’s something about getting ready for a trip that is just stressful for me. I have to plan my itinerary, book all of my transportation and places to stay, pack my suitcase, and make sure everything in my business and life is going to be taken care of while I’m gone.

And I can’t even imagine what it would be like also having to factor in a partner and kids. It’s just me and I still feel like I’m gonna have a meltdown getting ready for travel.

Like many of you who have taken my quiz, I am a stress and anxiety eater. So, if I don’t manage my stress, my natural tendency is to cope by eating everything in sight.

Enter, my killer anti-anxiety practice that puts me back into a zen state no matter how anxious I am. I do it every single day, but I upped it to 3 times per day in the weeks before my trip. It absolutely saved me.

I highly recommend you try it, and to make it fun and SUPER easy, my team made a super cool infographic that I am just drooling over. I saw it and lost. my. mind. If you’re like me and like visuals when you’re learning something new, you’re going to love it.

I mean look at this!

In news of other free stuff for you, I was interviewed by sisters Donna and Gwendolyn for their Eat With Intention series. We talked about my own struggles with food, and why eating with intention is so important for feeling like, with food, you’re the one controlling the show. You can see it right here.

And last, I’ve had quite a few of you emailing me asking when I’m doing free calls again. I’m taking a break while in Australia, but I did go in and open up a few slots for when I’m home. So, if you’ve been thinking of hopping on a call with me, grab your spot while they’re open and let’s do it!

On our call, I’ll ask you some questions about your history with food, and learn more about your unique food story. Then, I’ll help you get down to the root cause of why you feel the pull to overeat, emotionally eat, or binge eat.

And you’ll leave with the perfect next step to get you on the right track. It’s easy, incredibly helpful, and free.😄

Hugs and high-fives to holding koalas,

P.S. I really did hold a koala and it was the best day of my life. It did get a little fresh with me. 😂
