Seven Things + November Meal Plan
The 2024 Nourished Planner is here!
It’s wild to think this is the Eighth Edition of the Nourished Planner now released. While it’s gone through its own transition, I’m happy to say that in the last few years, the design has felt just right.
It includes everything you need to live your healthiest life and prioritize what’s most important to you.
You’ll find monthly how-to’s to help you live a more fulfilled and healthier life. Monthly priorities, tasks, budgeting, weekly wellness plans, appointment schedules, daily to-do lists, and plenty of white space to make it what you want.
And it’s single-handedly the only reason I stay remotely organized with my life.
Inside my top seven things this month, you’ll learn:
How to stop complicating health
My favorite quote
The wrong I admitted
How to use body scanning
How you lose body fat
Why I don’t think self-regulation exists
My current favorite thing
20 recipes to cook in November
Let’s get started!
01: Health Tip:
Stop complicating things.
Complicating life is a metric of protection against change. I know you want to change, but your body has a lot of resistance to it, especially if it’s ever felt particularly unsafe. For most of us, health, or the pursuit of it, has become one of the greatest stressors of our time.
Something that was intended to give you life is taking it.
In the process, it’s preventing you from experiencing it.
Ironically and unfortunately, a lot of this is due to our own need to overcomplicate the process of getting healthy. Leaving us chasing health or a destination we believe is healthy without ever really arriving.
Have you ever wondered if you’re the reason you can’t get healthy?
I’ve spent a lot of time here lately because I think we’re often our own worst enemy and the very thing stopping you from living what you’ve been seeking.
Here are a few things to note:
If it feels complicated, you’re on the wrong path. Health should be simple (that doesn’t mean it won’t require work).
Just because someone said it’s healthy, it might now be healthy for you. Here are three surprising things that could be making you more unhealthy.
**Don't use this to beat yourself up, but motivate you to do something different.**
02: Quote I love:
03: Current win:
Admitting I’m wrong.
I’m certain my husband is going to copy and paste this, blowing it up to large proportions and printing it out so he can forever and always remember the day I admitted I was wrong.
But I am, most of the time. And I’ve learned the more I dig my feet into being right, the more wrong I am (or probably am).
It’s funny how difficult it is to admit you’re wrong. But it makes sense biologically.
Being wrong is a threat to your story. If you’re wrong, then what you grasp as truth must also be wrong, dismantling what you’ve believed and forcing you to re-evaluate.
Which is why it’s easier to fight to be right. It’s why I fight to be right. To protect my broken story.
