We are talking SUGAR today! As you know, in the last year, my biz has taken some turns ( for the better) I am not only an Interior Designer that practices intentional interior design, but also an EFT practitioner
and Intuitive guide.
So begins our new series, “Design Thoughts Wellness”-DT Wellness for short. Each Thursday I will be adding in wellness to the big recipe of Connection that I am creating. Connection to space, connection to self!
SO….What’s your relationship like with sugar? Is it a “No big deal if I have some sugar” or is it a “GIMME SUGAR” type of situation?
I have had an interesting few weeks. As I mentioned before, I recently have been on A journey to kick my sugar habit. It hasn’t been a breeze, but now that I am several weeks into it, I have found my groove, listened to my whispers and started taking action. One of my actionable steps that works wonders for me
( and my clients!) is EFT ( Tapping). I have been “Tapping” on my sugar addiction, and really listening to what comes up. I have finally determined my WHY!! ( If you missed my “Tapping on Sugar video, watch it here
) Figure out your root, and start working up.
As with every addiction/habit that doesn’t serve us, there is a root. We don’t like getting to the root…its hard work, and it usually isn’t the most pleasant of places.
Well friends, my root is, nurturing. UGH.
I started to realize, that I turn to sugar anytime I need nurturing. If I am feeling out of control/overwhelmed/tired, sugar soothes me. A very shortened version of my story is, My childhood was filled with everything special, being accompanied with something sweet. My mom passed away when I was 24, and to fill that natural nurturing that we get from our moms, I turned to the next closest thing to feeling her love. SUGAR.
Why am I telling you all of this? Well, because through this journey, I have had to find NEW ways to nurture myself! I started to wonder how others nurture THEMSELVES?
So today, its a question for you, How are you nurtured? Do you have specific rituals that help you feel nurtured?
Here are some new rituals that I have discovered, that are beginning to take the place of sugar.
*Allowing myself to use both shower-heads of our double shower, when I take a shower ( even though it uses a ton more water). It feels luxurious to me.
*Warmth! Wrapping a warm oatmeal soothing hot pad around my shoulders, has amazingly, worked wonders.
* Saying out LOUD ” I need to be nurtured right now” when I get a huge sugar craving.

So, how about you? how do you nurture yourself? what do you need right now in your life? How could you bring more of what you need, into your life?
Have a great rest of your week!!! And give yourself moments this week to tune into your needs.
