Emotions are an essential part of our human design. Ignoring,
denying, or feeling shame about having them will only weigh you
down with emotional obesity. Emotions are an energy that you get to
feel, accept, and examine."

Obesity by Laura Coe
Every year, we spend millions of dollars on healthcare
and beauty systems. Our days begin with teeth brushing, hair
combing, and perhaps even exercise. Even if there are still many
who need persuading or incentivizing towards participating in such
routines, there is a general consensus that these self-care rituals
are good for us.
But when it comes to our emotional health, we are taught from a
young age to “get over” our feelings, and yet, in reality, most of
us just stockpile them, carrying their weight throughout life. Even
though we are not conscious of them, the feelings are weighing us
down from the life we want to live. The messages they create—of not
being good enough, not worthy, undeserving–become the guiding
principles of our lives.
Our goal is to become aware of our feelings. Then subscribe to
the habit of daily rituals for our emotional health, just as we
have for our physical health. By doing this we can free ourselves
from the destructive and unresolved feelings of the unconscious
mind and begin to direct our lives from our authentic self where
our true passions and desires reside.

Power Quotes From The Show
"Don't let emotions weigh you down. Instead, you have to get
curious about yourself and accept that there's nothing right or
wrong about feelings; they're just they're interesting pieces
information." - @laurascoe on @WellnessForce Radio episode 243
"We're aware of the impact that food has on our body but when it
comes to our thoughts, we don't really consider how they impact our
lives. What do you feel when you think of your outlook and
perspective of the world, life, and yourself? Do they weigh you
down? How can we get to a place where our thoughts don't feel heavy
but instead we feel light, free, and content?" - Laura
"There's a tipping point where we become overly focused on the
external world, people and their thoughts, other's approvals, and
even our own thoughts. That's when we lose touch with that deep
connection with our authentic self. These barriers of thoughts,
knowledge, and focus on the outside world block us from focusing on
ourselves and our internal compass and inner truth." -
"This idea that the feelings we're having are somehow right or
wrong is false. People often think having emotions means there's
something wrong with them when what we feel is completely normal.
Then, they feel amazed that they actually have all these emotions
they're feeling. So, with each strong emotion, find out what
triggered that reaction within you so you can grow, learn, and make
a decision of what to do with that emotion." - Laura
"Some people don't know where to start at all with what they
want to do with their lives. If that's you, it's a process to get
there but it's not that difficult. It's really just learning what
your unique talents are, what you feel uplifted towards, and then
starting to pursue those things more and finding what feels more
like play and enjoyment again to you in life." - Laura
"If I'm feeling angry about something while another person
isn't, that's an inner energy that somehow was triggered in me. In
moments like that, we want to start asking ourselves what's
happening within us and get very curious about ourselves. To get
curious about yourself, you have to be able to accept that there's
nothing right or wrong about these emotional states; they're just
happening and they're interesting pieces of information." -
