Non-Diety
Self-Care Coaching

Fridays, February 9, 16, 23

Originally a challenge, the Non-Diety Self-Care coaching is for you if you'd like some support around a specific self-care concern. Could be anything (non-diety) from nutrition, to Intuitive Eating, to exercise, to habits (making or breaking habits), etc. 

Self-Care things I helped clients with in 2023:

  • Finding motivation to exercise/move

  • Making more time for self-care (i.e. like pausing to take a lunch break) as a woman always looking after her family and putting her needs last

  • Learning to say "no" to colleagues when they take advantage of your generosity

  • Easing nervous eating from social anxiety

  • Learning to take drinking breaks and slowing down drinking overall

  • Learning that it's ok to eat for pleasure and not just for fuel

  • Making a plan to get started on a creative project

  • Addressing the barriers that prevent you from getting started on a creative project

Why is it "Non-Diety"?​

  • Because I'm an Intuitive Eating counselor and my work is based in a non-diet/anti-diet, body neutrality container

  • Because the coaching is about nurturing emotional and mental well-being by engaging in activities or routines that help address these directly or indirectly

  • Because dietary restriction, such as from dieting, can be a form of self-punishment and this challenge is the exact opposite of that 

  • Because "Non-Diety" also means engaging in self-care routines that are NOT based in, one, self-judgment (i.e. I'm going to walk everyday because I've been so lazy), two, "shoulds" (i.e. I'm going to exercise more because I 'should')

  • That means that there is no pass-fail, successful or not successful, etc.

PROMPTING QUESTIONS FOR SELF-CARE COACHING

  • In which areas of your life are you not feeling fulfilled or quite how you'd like to feel

  • Are your basic needs like sleep and nutrition being met? 

  • Is there a habit that you engage in that is counterproductive to your well-being at the moment? Like excessive screen time, social media or phone use? Drinking? 

  • Do you feel like fun is missing in your life? Have you thought about taking a dance or art class but feel silly about it, like it's not a 'responsible' thing to do? 

  • Is your body craving more movement?

  • Do you feel a longing to start a creative project or hobby? 

 

Suggested Self-Care Topics to bring to Coaching
(some are not really coaching topics per se but you can use them for prompting)

1. GROUNDING 

  • 5-10 minutes of deep breathing each day once a day

  • 10 minutes of gentle stretching daily

    • Add an extra serving of fruit daily

    • Hydrate, up your fluids 

  • Movement/Exercise

    • Engage in movement you enjoy, daily or whenever possible

  • Alcohol & Caffeine 

    • Take a drinking break (i.e. abstain during the challenge)

    • Cut back on coffee IF it's making you anxious and jittery because you're drinking a lot of it, and/or skipping meals and drinking coffee instead 

3. FUN/ENGAGING/RELAXING

    • Turn off social media notifications

    • Avoid checking your phone or social media for the first hour

    • Avoid checking your phone every 5 minutes

    • These are endless...

  • Challenge your self-defeating thoughts (I can help with this one)
