Begin a Love Your Body Reinvention
FROM A CONVERSATION WITH SUSAN HYATT ON THE REINVENT YOURSELF PODCAST
What if you spent all that time on growing your life instead of shrinking your body? So asks Susan Hyatt, author of the new book Bare: A 7-week Program to Transform Your Body, Get More Energy, Feel Amazing, and Become the Bravest, Most Unstoppable Version of You.
In an energetic discussion, the Indiana native reveals how she ditched real estate (which made her miserable) to follow her heart into life coaching, where she now runs a multi-million dollar business. Along the way she discovered the phrase that became the secret to her life-time weight loss and her 7 step program.
Susan’s Top Tips for a Body Reinvention
- Move with love.
I am a big believer in dropping the transactional relationship with your body. I used to say “okay, I’ll do the stairstepper if I have JLo’s booty by Friday. I want to encourage you to move and then listen to what comes up when you do. Because when you’re not moving, your emotion gets stuck in your body. And so there’s lots of practical reasons to move your body other than Jlo’s booty. Although, let’s be clear, JLo’s booty is a work of art.
- Eat with attentiveness.
Some of the research that I’ve read and what’s been true in my own life and my client’s lives, is that if you’re eating without attention, your body can’t metabolize it properly. The brain has to understand that satiation is happening. It only takes a couple of extra minutes, I promise. Breathe, take a few minutes, look at your food.
- Pay attention to your environmental diet.
What are you watching, what are you listening to? I’m talking not just about TV and radio, but what kinds of peer conversations are you entertaining? What’s coming at you through social media? There’s a lot going on around you that’s affecting you that you’re tolerating, that you don’t have to.
Hyatt says reading Dr. Martha Beck’s Finding Your Own North Star started her on her path.
