Weight Loss Wisdom: Worry Less, Play More

Greetings!  I’m back from teaching my Feed Your Soul workshop at Rowe Camp and Conference Center, which was a full-all-out blast!  Amazing people in the group!   Because we were there to feed our souls, the word pleasure surfaced.

We collectively and individually realized that we often give up the things that give us pleasure when we are seemingly short on time.  (Sound familiar?)   As a result of the stress and the absence of pleasure, our mood slips, depression sets in, and self-esteem erodes. Without pleasure, without leisure time, it becomes more and more difficult to define yourself apart from your job or your paycheck.

Juliet Schor, Harvard economist, reported that factory workers in Britain were forced to give up their overtime due to the company’s economic woes.    What do you think happened?

With time on their hands, people got together with their friends and family and the meaning of life became clear.  Their self-esteem began to rise; they found emotional balance.  They worried less and played more.  They felt better.

Adults need to learn, relearn and/or reinforce their ‘finding pleasure’ skills.

Pleasure: plezh-er – the state or feeling of being pleased; enjoyment or satisfaction derived from what is to one’s liking; gratification; delight. sensual gratification.

What gives you pleasure?  I’m not talking about big fun. I’m not talk about happiness. I’m talking about the small things in life that give you pleasure.
