habit lessons

First, bookmark this page!

 

For each habit, we will reflect on habit-changing concepts & learn ways to implement doable changes in your life that keep you on the path of courageous self-love, in alignment with why you are here and on track for meeting your goals for this program. Occasionally, you'll print some worksheets, and you have the option to watch some teaching videos to deepen your knowledge about each topic.

Seeking more resources? You might consider reading the following books or at least having them on hand throughout the course:

  • Body Thrive ~ Cate's Book about the 10 habits (Cate's book & teaching influenced much of this course)

  • Three Season Diet ~ Dr. Douillard's book about eating with the seasons according to Ayurveda

  • Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life ~ Dr. Claudia Welch ("uncommon insights into hormones, women’s health concerns, lifestyle and diet")

For more about the basics of Ayurveda, namely the 5 elemental theory & the gunas (qualities) used to guide recommendations for self-care, listen to Season 1, Episode 7: Fearless Abundance of Yoga & Ayurveda on the Fearless Self-Love Podcast (starting at minute 42:25)

All course videos are optional & linked below with each habit. You can also scroll through all of them at once here. Use password bodylove

Community, Identity, & Wellness (Welcome Week)

Have these ready for our call:

Community:

This week is about landing together, seeing one another's faces, chatting in the large and smaller groups. We will review & discuss our group guidelines and get clear on some logistics about the course.

Identity & Privilege:

We'll consider how our individual identities impact our wellness journeys. We'll have a conversation about privilege, in it's various forms, and how it impacts our access to wellness as well as how our wellness journey can impact others

Wellness:

This is a chance to connect deeply as a group around what has motivated our own wellness pursuit, why we are here, and how we intend to show up for the next 3 months. We will spend time getting very specific with our WHY & our goals.
