Cheap Sunglasses: Invest in yourself instead

Michelle May


cheapsunglassesI spent twenty bucks on a pair of cheap sunglasses, rationalizing that if I lost them on vacation, it would be no big deal. When they broke on the first day, they suddenly became the most expensive sunglasses I’d ever owned at $20 per wear! Deciding how much to invest in sunglasses is an example of weighing the cost vs. benefits. What about your well-being? Do you waste money on quick fixes that don’t work (and aren’t always cheap)? Do you keep doing what you’ve always done, hoping for different results? Or do you actually invest in yourself to grow and improve your well-being?

Measuring the Cost

Consider: How much time, money, and energy has your struggle with food had already cost you? And how much more will cost over the course of your life in terms of your physical and emotional well-being?

Let’s get specific…

I acknowledge that an Am I Hungry? Mindful Eating Retreat or Workshop is an investment in your well-being—and worth every cent because of the life-changing transformation that takes place!

I’ve personally witnessed people transform in a short period of time. They show up a feeling little nervous and a little unsure about telling their secrets to a bunch of strangers. Within hours, they aren’t strangers anymore! They are fellow travelers on an exciting journey toward freedom: freedom from dieting, freedom from binging, and freedom from guilt!

A missed opportunity

It honestly breaks my heart to think of all the people whose lives would be changed by showing up, but who will continue to try one diet plan after another.

Or worse yet, have given up hope of ever finding freedom from their struggles with food.

And then there are those who don’t believe that freedom is possible, so their only option is to weigh, measure, and count food, and punish themselves with exercise for the rest of their lives.

It doesn’t have to be like that!

What could you do with the time, energy, and money you’ve been wasting on yo-yo dieting?

Skip the cheap sunglasses. Invest in yourself instead and learn to eat mindfully!
