Total Health: Nishah Dennison On How We Can Optimize Our Mental, Physical, Emotional, & Spiritual Wellbeing

Habit one: Completion as Satisfaction — When overwhelmed by many things at once, make a list of all, rate the priority of each, and complete one thing at a time in order of priority. Notice how you feel each time something is completed: more relaxed, able to be happy, less burdened, able to laugh. Feel the relief and satisfaction as things are completed. Completion de-stresses the psyche.

  • Keeping food beyond ‘sell-by’ date or only buying reduced food: lack of self-care/self-worth, money obsession/scarcity fears.
  • Over eating: to fill a void, desensitize from feelings/emotions, comfort/reward instead of dealing with the core issue.
  • Under eating: as a way of feeling in control when in reality, are feeling out of control in life and relationships.
  • Minimal eating: can be a form of self-punishment, maintaining a history of deprivation. Feeling sick if eating a bit more, overwhelmed by food in general, can only allow themselves a miniscule amount.
