How do you want 2015 to feel?

It’s that time of year {…already?} when everyone is coming up with their yearly resolutions.

I loooooove a good resolution.

Not the kind where you’re supposed to lose 15 pounds or go on a strict diet,

or even the kind where you start working out for the next 364 days of the year.

I heart the kind of resolutions that address how I want to feel.

Can it be that simple?

OK folks, Let’s get honest.

When you’ve got a low-functioning thyroid or your hormones are as unpredictable as a

roller coaster then you know that you just don’t have the energy to put into a major New Year overhaul.

Reality is, we’re kinda maxed out as it is.

But don’t fret. Rather than put your attention on what you want to do this next year,

put a little bit of thought into how you want to feel.

Do you want to feel adventurous?

How about in tune or in charge?

Do you want to feel in love? Or connected?

When you focus on feelings, the “to-do’s” fall right into place.

Here’s what happened for me {and my surprising Aha moment}

Ever since I started Danielle La Porte’s Desire Map- I’ve focused a lot less on doing and a lot more on feeling.

This year, my hubby and I sat down by the fire {like we do every year}, got out the paper and started

our New Year’s process. By the end, I nailed down my 2015 feeling.

I aim to feel free.

{Spoiler alert: what happens next is the real eye opener so keep reading.}

Once you nail the feeling, then all you do is have fun brainstorming the actions.

What actions will bring you closer to your feeling?

If you’re like me, and you want to feel free then go ahead and make a list

of everything that brings on that free feeling for you.

Maybe hiking helps you feel free. Maybe wearing lipstick, or leaving work a bit early on Fridays,

or planning spontaneous dates with your girlfriends helps you feel free.

Maybe trying new foods or travelling brings the free feeling home.

Don’t worry about editing yourself here. Just keep writing down activities/behaviors

that bring you closer to your New Years feeling.

As I was writing and conjuring up freedom feelings, one activity kept coming back

to the top of my list. It was time for me to start clearing out. As in, get rid of stuff, clean out the cobwebs,

donate, trash, purge, whatever you want to call it. Cleaning out was my quickest path to freedom.

What…Sounds boring right?

I would have taken before and after’s, but that would be wayyyyy too embarrassing.

Like most low thyroid types, I too can get a little obsessive.

So, with a whole lotta support and a kick in the rear from my friend- Tamara Star and

her 40 Day Personal Reboot program, I started purging like a mad woman. Seriously, no corner went untouched.

[If you’re ready to clear out the cobwebs and start fresh, I highly recommend Tamara’s Reboot Program.

You can find all the deets right here. She’ll give you all the how’s, why’s and when’s to make it happen.

From Day 1 she kicked my rear in gear and boy, am I glad that I listened.]

Once the stuff started hitting the appropriate box [donate, gift or sell]-

I started feeling free! Lighter, more energy, yep….the whole deal felt free.

This is major when you struggle with hormonal swings and low energy. Having my space clear has literally

made it easier to move around in my world. My head is thinking clear, my memory is better,

and I’m telling you…I’ve got more mojo. Now that’s a Reboot (Tamara style;)).

How Can The 10 Day Sugar Free Challenge Help?

By the time New Years rolls around, nearly everyone is ready to hop on a new diet,

try another exercise program or lose 10 pounds in a snap.

And while those intentions are well and good, our intentions have a hard time sticking unless we can

feel into our bodies. You see, our bodies are great communicators {to read more about how your body talks click here}.

Yes, in the 10 Day Challenge we cut out the sweet stuff for a few days so that we can finally feel

how we’re relying on food to medicate, soothe and get through the day. There’s no pressure to

stay off sugar forever, there’s just a whole lot of tools from recipes to techniques (and one stellar Facebook community)

to get you to feel your body again.

Are YOU Ready to Take the Challenge?
