Have you ever thought about your relationships? The ones that mean the most to you? I’m willing to bet there’s one important relationship you may have a habit of neglecting — your relationship between your body and food.

There’s a fine line between healthy eating and gluttony that many of us teeter on and sometimes all it takes is one bad day at work or one comment from a loved one to send us running straight to the kitchen cabinets (or the drive-thru of the nearest fast food restaurant). A disastrous relationship with food can often be as damaging as being addicted to an abusive ex you can’t seem to get rid of… But what if you could stop this kind of self-destructive behavior? And what if you could stop making decisions about food and about your body that just don’t serve you or your mental wellness anymore?

All of this can come to an end once you learn how to change your habits, behaviors and become more mindful so you can change your relationship with food.

Maybe you’ve tried every diet out there and you’re sick and tired of working out all the time with little or no progress to show for your efforts. Maybe there’s something you just haven’t tried yet — and have no idea what that is or what it could mean for your health. That’s where my incredible friend Lisa Goldberg’s free Well Fed MIND Summit comes in! This exclusive online summit can help us all focus on being more aware and mindful of what our bodies need so that we can feel good and have the energy and vitality we need all day (every day).

If you’re truly ready to break up with that box of cookies for good, you can find all that you need to know in this upcoming virtual tele-summit where 21 nutritionists, doctors, authors, psychologists, coaches, therapists and other transformational experts (including yours truly) will be gathering for 11 straight days, during which time they’ll be sharing their most useful techniques, tools, trade secrets and more — allowing everyone who participates to have a healthier and more fulfilling relationship with their bodies, eating and food.

(I also happen to know that a lot of the summit experts will be giving away free gifts to those who participate… Although you didn’t hear that from me!)

Let me also tell you what this summit won’t be about… It won’t be about dieting, what you can and cannot eat – and it won’t be about spending countless hours at the gym. What it will be about sustainable, long-term changes regarding the way you think of food. You’ll learn how to be mindful of this relationship and take away lots of healthy ways to nourish your body while also nourishing your mind.

Because I’m a guest panelist for the event this year, I’m able to invite whomever I want to attend the event 100% free of charge. That means you (and whomever else you would like to invite)! Spots are limited, but you can register right away by clicking here. (Lisa told me I could share this free participation link with anyone I wanted… Hope she doesn’t mind me making it public this way! LOL!)

I hope you’ll take part in this online summit. (Again, it’s 100% free!)

No matter how much we plan in advance or mentally prepare, life is going to sometimes bring stress our way (in all sorts of different forms – many of which can’t be predicted). The trick to not being eaten alive by this stress (which, in turn, often makes us want to eat everything in our path), is to not let the stressful events give us an excuse to cheat on our diets, yell at the people closest to us or to let the rest of our day (or week!) be ruined. Stress is on its way. Bank on it. The trick is accepting it, dealing with it and moving past it.

Here are a few practical tips for keeping stress in its place:

Learn from the stress:
Yeah, I know this can sound a bit trite. But a lot of times there is a good lesson to be learned from stressful situations. Sure this ‘learning’ usually happens long after the stress has come and gone. But putting a positive spin on what occurred and seeing away to avoid and/or handle the same stressful situation in the future is a valuable lesson. For ideas about how to gain helpful insights from stress, click here.

Breathe Deep:
Controlled breathing can be like a “Mini Meditation” and help us to change the mental channel by getting more in touch (and in control) of what’s going on with ourselves, internally. Helpful breathing exercises can be found in lots of different places (including on page 77 of my book). There are also lots of helpful links online. Here are a few:

Do Something Productive:
Sometimes we can’t do anything about a particular stressful situation we’re facing – but wecan increase our own self-worth. Next time a stressful situation has you down, clean out your closet or reorganize kitchen shelves. The act of accomplishing something and seeing the results of your work can help to transform your mental state and remind you that you can accomplish anything (even if it’s making your sock drawer more attractive).

Work It Out:
Besides making you even more beautiful on the outside and healthier on the inside, exercise releases endorphins that take your mental mood from sour to sublime. Even taking a brisk walk for just 30 minutes can make a difference. Try listening to “Feel Good” music that lifts your spirit while you’re walking. And don’t forget to pump your arms, pay attention to your posture and suck in that tummy for extra benefits from the walk (besides just strutting the stress away).

Do you have personal stress busters that you rely on during times of mental turmoil? If so, I’d love for you to share them below with a comment. Or, if you dare, share an actual stress. I promise to help you ‘Ommmm’ your way through it!
