4 Surprising Reasons Why You’re Gaining Weight

4 Surprising Reasons Why You’re Gaining Weight

This blog post is for you, if you feel like you are doing everything “right” but your body seems to be functioning “all wrong”.

This information is for you if you’re positive that you're not eating more food or “junkier” food but you're still gaining weight.

This is for you if you feel bigger than ever, even though you are eating intuitively, only when you’re hungry and stopping when you’re full and really listening to what your body needs (and definitely not bingeing), but your clothes no longer fit you and you’ve gone up one or two dress sizes in a matter of months.

You might be asking yourself, how is this possible? Am I totally crazy?

Darling, you definitely are NOT crazy!

And here's why.

Whilst in theory the whole “calories in, calories out” argument makes sense, it’s an overly simplistic view of weight.

There's definitely more to the story than just what you're eating. For sure you can’t out-exercise a bad diet, but even following a healthy diet can still mean you have difficulty in losing weight and you can even gain weight despite being “good”.

A lot of this comes right down to your metabolic rate which is affected by things like your activity level, history of dieting, body composition, and even what you eat. Unexplained weight gain is usually a message from our body- which means we need to stop and listen to what it’s telling us so we can rectify things.

How to Balance your Body and Soul by Grounding

How to Balance your Body and Soul by Grounding

Everyone could use a little grounding in their life. You may be unfamiliar with the term grounding or earthing, but it is nothing to shy away from! Grounding is a natural way to ease the stress in your life, as well as improve sleep by using--that’s right--the very ground we stand on! Our bodies were meant to come in contact with the earth daily, multiple times per day even.

Throughout the years, we have gradually spent less and less time outdoors. Between long hours at work, the day-to-day chores associated with owning vehicles and homes, over-stimulation with our various electronic devices, and easily accessible entertainment right from our couch, it has become increasingly difficult to enjoy our leisure time outside.

Usually, we will find tiles, carpet, wood and other synthetic floorings in homes and work spaces, that replace the very floors our ancestors walked on- the earth in its purest form.

Read on for ways you can ground your body and get back in sync with Mother Earth, all while relieving stress, decreasing inflammation, and syncing your body with the earth below you.

How to Keep a Positive Mindset and Clear Negativity as an Entrepreneur

Without a doubt, so much of our success and wellbeing as an entrepreneur really comes down to our mindset. Being able to ward off negativity when it strikes, and to keep a positive attitude in all areas of our life, is what can make or break it for us.

Now of course, we are only human. It is completely normal for negative thoughts to creep into our day-to-day life and to cause little bumps in our lives. Its when these thoughts become a pattern that they become not only harder to shake, but they can also affect our ambition and ability to navigate through our daily tasks as fluidly as wed like.

Negative thought patterns can also affect our sleep, motivation, productivity, emotional strength and stability. Negative energy has this way of being able to pull us down, and the unconscious mind works in such powerful ways that it can diminish our happiness and make us feel badly about certain things in our life.

Sometimes, our mindset can be affected by stress and overwhelm in trying to juggle everything in our business and life. Other times our moods can swing due to our menstrual cycles, the lunar cycle or even just the weather getting us down. It may seem like there is no good reason to be feeling negative, whilst other times it might be very clear what has caused the shift in mood and thinking.
