Seeing Food Babe (Vani Hari) speak live was definitely my highlight of Day 1 of The Take Back Your Health Conference.
Inside today’s post I will share my notes with you, hope you get value from it!
Take Back Your Health Conference and Some Incredible Lessons
Everyone at the Take Back Your Health Conference (created by Robin Shirley) seems to have an incredible story. Listening to these stories is so inspiring for me, and strengths my belief that if people can heal from stage 4 cancer, if they can heal get through all the challenges that life throws at them and come out better on the other side of it, eating right and having a health pregnancy should be so much easier than that.
Pregnancy is not easy (we’re growing a human being inside of us for goodness sake!), but it doesn’t have to be harder than it needs to be.
Vani Hari, the “Food Babe”, creator of foodbabe.com, was a guest speaker at the event, and she gave some interesting insights into her story and what her life is like as a food activist. As her new book, The Food Babe Way became the #1 National bestseller in 2016, her life also became very hard as she experience media attacks that aimed to discredit her and her work. Two of the three lessons that she talked about was:
- The universe has your back. When things get tough, we have to remember that there is a higher power that is guiding us.
- “No mud. No lotus.” – Buddhist proverb.
These two lessons that Vani Hari learnt applies so well to pregnancy as well! We just have to remember that our babies are the little lotuses that is going to be born onto this earth, through all the pain, throwing up, nausea, waiting, and emotional ups and downs. It will all be worth it in the end.
Another point is that if you are not feeling your most feminine when you are pregnant, have a look at your diet, have a look at your relationships, your spirituality…is there an area of your life that you can work on to feel great? There is something about feeling great, that inspires us to bring out more of our femininity.
What Was The Best Part Of Your Day?
When you are pregnant or looking after the babies, and are just having a hard day, make a shift in your focus and mind by asking yourself,
“What was the best part of my day today?”
Pretty soon, you’ll start to notice more and more good things happening to you and around you.
