3 Primary Reasons Why We Become (or Stay) Overweight

If you are overweight (as I once was), you can become obsessed with food, losing weight and that number on the scale.

But it’s almost impossible to get fit until you consider the underlying factors that are creating your body to become (or stay) overweight, because putting on weight isn’t just something that “happens” to us.

It often follows certain beliefs that we can so easily believe.

Here’s Why You Need To ‘Baby’ Your Body The Rest of This Month

The rest of this month, you might want to take it easy on yourself.

The second Mercury Retrograde of 2014 began last Saturday, June 7 and goes through July 1.

These 3-week retrograde cycles are a time for an energetic turning within.

We recently completed the Mars Retrograde, which stirred a lot of things up for people the last few months.

So Mercury retrograde this month can help us finish processing and integrating all the emotions that were stirred up and are now ready to be released.

But the new place is not in the external world. The new place is within.

I invite you to use this Mercury Retrograde to clear out the energetic debris internally so your inner vision can become crystal clear.

Here are 5 tips to support your body and emotions so you can do just that.
