Tired of the "New Year, New You" rhetoric that flooded your social media feeds? You are not alone. Brooke Van Ryssel, the owner / founder of My Body Fitness + Nutrition, recently took on Instagram all the things that they think they should be "broken off" for 2019. (Related: The Best Size Inclusive Activewear Brands)
"Diet culture will be discontinued in 2019," she shared with a photo of herself. "Here's." Some other things I would like to cancel in the new year … obesity, racism, assault (of all kinds, including, and above all, disguised as "health concerns"), toxic relationships, self-doubt, self-hatred, rejection, transphobia, ageism, uninhibited privilege , cultural appropriation, discrimination of any kind and finally … New Year New You … should also be canceled.

It's no secret that there's a lot of pressure in the New Year, especially when it comes to setting goals and intentions, regardless of your current situation or lifestyle there is this looming sentiment that you need to do and be "better" than your current version, but Van Ryssel suggests stopping this term in its tracks and being happy with who you are and where you are in life instead of constantly trying to change them for the better]
Oh hey, I returned from vacation to bring you some memories since Many of us go on holiday after the New Year … You can continue to feed your body with whatever food it wants / regardless of what you have eaten over the holidays And pay attention to what it tells you, because it knows best. Speaking of … Your body is so amazingly amazing, it knows exactly how to regulate itself in times of abundance and shortage. Sometimes it's the way you find your sweet spot by gaining or losing weight. Fear not and have confidence in your body, which is biologically programmed to help you thrive! You do not have to try to force your body to a place where you do not want to be just because someone or something tells you that you "have it." You are not a failure when your body changes. Do not let anyone tell you to compensate for what you eat by eating less, restricting or supplementing with exercise. No, you do not need detox after your holiday, your liver has you babe. Just listen to this beautiful body and honor its hints! Report these damn diet ads! They only want to benefit from insecurity and direct lies. They will tell you that you were "bad" and you have to get back on track, spoiler! You've never left the lane, the lane of life is not a straight road where everything & everyone just looks and stays the same forever. That would be boring af. Bodies change, people change, environments change, that's normal. Move your body if it feels right for you. (If you want to do this in a supportive environment where the focus is on what you are capable of rather than what you look like, then come to us.) Supportive motivation and motivation for coercion / guilt are two very different things. Move because you love your body and your mind. Holidays can be tough, and even if they were great, that's what you feel now. Anxiety after vacation, depression, joy, confusion, exhaustion, excitement, relief, uproar … you name it. It's all NORMAL. Honor your feelings, they are important and YOU are important
"Body Change people change, environments change "It's normal," she said in another post on Instagram. "Move your body when it feels right for you. (If you want to do this in a supportive environment that focuses on what you are capable of rather than what you look for.) Supporting motivation and forced / guilt motivation are two very different things. " Of course, anyone can relate to these feelings of distress because you are not where you thought you were in your career or now They are not the weight you were before, or you have never met anyone.
"It's okay not to feel okay," she wrote, "Holidays can be tough … whatever it is valid, fear, depression, joy, confusion, exhaustion, excitement, relief, riot after the holiday … you name it, it's all NORMAL, honor your feelings, they're important, and you're important. "
The Challenges This year is to change the perspective. This does not mean that the person you need needs to be updated, updated or changed. Love where you are now.
