NOURISHMENT FROM THE HEART
When it comes to trying to decide what to eat and how to eat, we are often overwhelmed as there are so many options these days. But if we look to the generations that came before us, they seemed to think little beyond the question of can it make you strong, healthy and full of life? Is it full of love? In other words: does it fully nourish a body? So much wisdom gets lost when we lose touch with the traditions of our families, whether they are by blood or by connection. If you’re interested in hearing about the power of love in the human diet, check out Marc David’s article on Nourishment from the Heart here.

MORE AWARENESS, LESS APPETITE - with Emily Rosen
Have you ever wondered why you didn’t have the willpower to simply stop eating when you knew you’d had enough?

Most of us don’t have an excess of appetite -- we have a deficit of attention when it comes to eating. In this inspiring video from #IPEtv, Emily Rosen, Director of the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, explains how we can channel the power of attention to naturally regulate our appetite. Tune in now! In the comments below, please let us know: What differences do you notice in your appetite when you eat with attention? We love hearing your thoughts!

WHAT’S UP WITH PERFECTIONISM?
From an early age, many of us learn that in order to be loved, accepted, or be successful, we must be perfect: the perfect wife, the perfect man, the perfect employee, child, etc. But if we take a step back and look around, we’ll quickly see how everyone’s definitions of perfection are often different and unique according to one’s own story. It’s a virus that cleverly mutates to fit the host. While many believe this is the source of their drive and ambition, it’s often the thing holding them back from living a life free of stress and fear. Are you ready to let go of your idea of what perfectionism can do for you? Check out “What’s Up With Perfectionism” and learn more.
