We are told we need to be mindful. In Food, exercise, school, meditation and relationships. That goes for our kids, coworkers, friends and family right? Why wouldn’t we nurture nurture our spouse or partner the same as we do our children? There is nor should be no difference. Being mindful in dating is especially important as well. Not a subject most want to talk about and it easily become uncomfortable. I work with this on a daily basis as I train and coach clients on workout habits and eatings habits. We ALL want to look and feel good. My clients express concerns with their bodies and wanting to look “the way they did before” or tone up. Whatever your verbiage, we all love to rock a great outfit but ultimately want to feel comfortable being naked. I know, I know….touchy subject but necessary to address. Dealing with emotional issues and trauma leaves my clients vulnerable and fearful of judgement. I spend a great deal of time with my clients uncovering body issues to help identify those fears so that ultimately we can create new habits around food and nutrition choices. We must do this before we are going to get a handle on our eating disorders and skewed thinking around “what’s healthy”.
I was researching articles today and came across this fabulous article by Cara Kovacs that I think you’ll enjoy and help shed some light on the dating scene or even help you in your current situation whether it’s a boyfriend/girlfriend, fiancé, or spouse because truly, you should never stop dating.
YES, I SAID NEVER…I don’t do that often.
