Do you schedule time for yourself? Or, are you last on your holiday list?
Do you enjoy your food? Or, is it just a sense of fuel to get out of the way?
Are you eating because you are actually hungry or is there another reason such as, stress, thirst or emotional hunger?
Are you looking to break this cycle?
If you answered yes to any one of these questions, then this workshop is perfect for you!
