For this episode, I delved into the archives. My guest is a long-time online friend of mine, Alania Starhawk of AlaniaStarhawk.com.
In my post Self-Isolation: Challenges of Physical Distancing, I spoke about becoming more mindful of the thoughts that are going through our head at this time, which can cause use mental suffering. This time, I thought I would offer some suggestions for activities one could do to thrive, rather than merely survive, while in isolation.
I started my efforts to shed excess weight back in December of last year, and I did have a small amount of success. But, the commitment. The readiness to release the pounds just wasn’t there. At the first sign of stormy weather – family stress – any progress that I had flew straight out the window.
It was not my first attempt. In fact, the size of my body and the accompanying body-image issues have been a part of my life since I was a young child.
