How Do You Want to FEEL in 2014?

Author: Dr. Quinte Naturopathic Centre on 16 December 2013

Forget about the New Year's Resolution this year, does it really stick anyway? Those of us who are "good goal-setters" may freak out a little. What am I talking about? This doesn't mean you all of a sudden abandon your short and long-term goals, these are still very important. We need to change how we go about getting there. The truth is it's not the goal that is important, it's the FEELING it gives us when we reach it.  Once you understand the feelings that you are chasing you have a measuring stick to evaluate everything you do. You can start to eliminate what you are not resonating with and build on what you do resonate with.

For example: I want to lose weight because I want to feel energetic, healthy, and confident. Then you can start to ask yourself, does drinking this can of pop make me feel energetic, healthy, and confident? Chances are the answer is NO.  In this process you are then creating the habits you need to reach that goal and ultimately the feeling you want to have. Need a great resource and workbook to help you with this? Check out this video with Danielle Laporte to help you:

Whether it's weight loss, less stress, more energy, or any other goal, we all need 3 things to get there. A PATH to follow, the right INFORMATION to satisfy our logical brain, and our desired FEELINGS to guide us in the right direction to satisfy our emotional needs.

Need some help getting there? Check out our Eat Real Food Bootcamp at to see if it resonates with you. Through this new program and individual consultation with patients I am fulfilling one of my core purposes and why I am a Naturopathic Doctor. I want to use my organizational skills & ability to integrate information to teach people how to live to their potential in all facets of life, in order to improve themselves, their environment, and the next generation.

Make 2014 about how you really want to feel and allowing yourself to feel worthy! I am grateful for the opportunity to work with each one of you on your journey. See you in the New Year!
