“You can’t hate yourself happy, and you can’t criticize yourself thin, and you can’t shame yourself healthy.
That’s the strategy that so many women are using and it’s important to address the emotional side of weight loss and to take a different approach.” –Jessica Ortner
Who am I to take care of myself when so many people depend on me? I hear this all the time. The fact is that self-care is not a reward. It is an essential ingredient to living, to surviving, to having a healthy life. “Tapping” is a technique I use myself of literally tapping with your fingers on acupressure points in order to relax your body and/or change your mindset. It is useful for alleviating cravings, stress, anxiety, and much more.
