Episode #165 - Jeanette Bronée

Nourishment Expert, Speaker and Author Jeanette Bronée has more than 15 years of experience helping people overcome their daily confusion and struggles with eating while avoiding the restrictive nature of dieting. Her core belief is that when we focus on feeling healthy, vibrant, and nourished, weight loss is just a welcome side effect. This handbook offers a condensed guide to the first step in her path to self-nourishment. With a focus on basic food knowledge -- including a lucid explanation of hunger and digestion and an in-depth guide to the foods and eating habits that will help you stay satisfied longer after a meal -- her book Eat to Feel Full aims to help its readers feel better about eating, feel better after eating, and gain mastery of their appetites through an increased sense of well-being. Her TEDx talk is an example of how we can take charge of our health by changing our relationship with food.

Now more than ever, time is currency, but self-care is not where to save time, it is how we get time back. To achieve ideal personal and organizational health, it is essential to make self-care the foundation for how we perform–at work, at home and on the go, because essentially health is the new currency. Health and nourishment is the foundation for peak performance, sustainable success and a good life.

The way we work in our modern busy lives doesn’t work and we are a breaking down from burn-out and overwhelm. What if instead of just surviving every day, we could thrive?

We struggle, because the first thing we leave behind on a busy day is ourselves and our self-care, even our basic needs for sustenance and our longing for feeling nourished.

I developed the Path for Life Method, which integrates the 3 key essential ingredients to create sustainable change in the way we eat, perform and thrive every day: Food-Knowledge, Mindfulness, and Habit-shifting.

Food-knowledge is how food becomes a tool for being at our best. By learning how food affect us it becomes a tool to support our body and ourselves in achieving better daily well-being while still being busy at work.

Mindfulness is how we learn to listen within. To pause and ask questions. Questions that create change. It is how we can re-train our mindset from that of the inner critic to the inner coach.

Habit-shifting is how we change from being stuck to being engaged, active and focused. When we feed the natural process of change; the human desire to make progress and grow our human need for connection, community and contribution, good change happens and we can create sustainable success.

Self-care does not come last. Self-care is not a luxury or a perk, it is the foundation for achieving work/life/health integration and living a life we love.
