“You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” – Jon Kabat-Zinn
This month marks 3 years since I started this blog with my very first post “Why Should We Make Peace with Food?”.
What began as a way of conveying some helpful words to clients struggling with emotion-driven overeating has grown into something I couldn’t have imagined.
This month’s theme is “change” and, rather ingeniously, I was planning to tell you I’m making some changes of my own.
I was planning to tell you that, rather than sticking to a weekly blogging schedule, I feel the desire to be more spontaneous.
I was planning to tell you that I’m retaining the monthly question and dropping the other features, because there are other things I want to work on.
I was planning to tell you that I’d much rather surprise you than become stale and predictable.
Then the Covid-19 crisis hit and life has changed dramatically for all of us.
So now what I most want to tell you is I’m still very much here.
In the past week I’ve had to move my practice online and I’d like to say a big thank you to all my clients for their patience and understanding while I figure out the technical stuff.
My apologies to eatonomy group members for having to cancel this month’s session. A number of you have contacted me about having the group online and I’ll be looking at that for April. I’m afraid I’m unable to take new participants so the sessions would only be open to existing group members (both past and present). If you’d be interested in taking part, please email me.
I may be a little slow responding to emails at the moment as I have a lot to organise, but I’m hoping things will settle down soon.
And I’ll definitely still be blogging regularly. What form those posts will take I’m not sure yet – I just want to help you through this as best I can.
With the Coronavirus situation unfolding so rapidly, I guess we’ll all just have to learn to surf so we can ride the waves of change.
Stay safe and well, everyone.
Stay home if you can.
Let’s protect ourselves and each other.
With very best wishes,
