Many women question whether their drinking has become too big a part of their lives and worry not only they may be gaining weight, but affecting their overall health and their day to day function.
In saying that, they resist to change their circumstances anyway because of the fear of losing the pleasure and stress-relief associated with alcohol.
We all know that when trying to lose weight, it’s recommended that you refrain from drinking alcohol.
This is based on the fact that alcohol has a high concentration of unhealthy sugars and empty calories as well as alcohol generally drives you to compromise on good eating habits, which might make you eat the wrong foods.
It’s not only the weight gain, but what about coincidently waking up at 2am every night to pee or sometimes unexplainedly waking up in the early hours to find yourself staring at the ceiling.
Then the self-loathing thoughts creep in as you ponder your life and what it would be like to be free from the burden.
Those woken moments, are no co-incidence.
They are signs.
You know you can’t go on like this and regularly make vows of promises.
But once the daylight hours hit, it’s almost forgotten of the thoughts from the night before.
Until.. it happens again.
A lot of women I consult are confronting this very issue and it’s not alarming as the years go by, the trend is on the rise given the hectic schedules we all face.
Some women are actually in denial about the quantity of glasses of vino they consume on a weekly basis.
Have you ever stopped to really, really count and put it into perspective?
It may surprise you.
I wanted to bring your attention to a book called: This Naked Mind by Annie Grace that a few of my clients struggling with this recommended as an empowering read.
It can be found on Amazon and I have no affiliation with the book. I merely wanted to pass it along as something which may help you. It is designed to empower and delight you, to allow a forever change in your relationship with alcohol.
It’s a stepping stone…
And like the book says, sometimes what you are searching for is in the journey, rather than the destination.
Let me know what you think of the book.
If I can assist you in anyway to take back control of your health, please don’t hesitate to schedule a call with me and let’s talk.
