HAES® For The Holidays E-Course with Golda Poretsky, HHC

HAES for the holidays spring edition header2 rounded

I think we all have this image of an ideal holiday. We picture spending time with our favorite relatives and friends, enjoying delicious food, decorating our homes, and in general, feeling that feeling of connection and understanding with those we love.

But so often, the holidays don’t really look like that. Perhaps you have an endless to do list of shopping and preparation that can’t possibly be met. Perhaps certain family members can’t make it or have passed on and you really miss them.

Food is another huge stressor during the holidays. Perhaps you’ve been dieting or restricting your gluten or sugar intake and you’re worried about bingeing out on cookies. Or maybe you have family members who scrutinize your weight or your food choices, and you’re worried that your relatives are going to say judgmental things about it.

The thing about the holidays is that they’re just a hyper-amplified expression of what you’re dealing with much of the time. Even if you only see your Aunt Edna, who always comments on your weight, once a year, you still walk around with that Aunt Edna voice inside your head, right? You still criticize yourself for not being the size you want to be, and not eating “perfectly” (whatever that might mean). You still beat yourself up emotionally for not meeting a standard, even if that standard gets raised during the holidays.

What if you could do this holiday season differently?

What might it mean to you to have a less stressful holiday–one where you could really enjoy your friends and loved ones, feel relaxed while you’re eating, and have ways to manage comments about your weight and food choices?

What might it mean to have support in order to make this happen?

  • How to pay attention to your fullness cues so that you stress out less about overeating during holiday meals.
  • Ways to increase your self care during this time of year.
  • Easy techniques for setting boundaries with loved ones who tend to comment on your weight or food choices.
  • Body loving techniques for dealing with being in and seeing yourself in family pictures.
  • Stress-free methods for dealing with feelings of overwhelm.
  • Plus lots more!

A lot can change in just 30 days.

I’ve designed this course so that each action item will take just a few minutes of your time. You’ll notice that they’re designed for minimum effort and maximum impact. As you progress through the HAES® for the Holidays E-course that you’re feeling better, less stressed, and more capable of handling the specific difficulties that can happen during the holidays.

What Folks Are Saying About Golda’s Programs
meganGolda’s insights about self-care through expression of your emotions and setting your boundaries, along with her thoughts on mindful eating, and her acknowledgement of the importance of pleasure and play in your life were so very valuable to me. I use her suggestions every day and feel my life is more balanced and happier because of the commitment to self-care I made during the course.
-Megan, Chicago, IL

Deciding to join Golda’s course was one of the best decisions I ever made. I have learned to be comfortable in my own skin, to feel real love for my body and embrace my emotions as a real part of myself, just as real as my arms or legs. Now, I walk around with confidence and embrace my own beauty, I get more compliments on daily basis, I enjoy my meals, I identify my hunger, I stop eating when I am full, and I finally stopped worrying about going on a diet again.
-Sonia Marrón Alonso. Baja California, Mexico

If you are tired of hating your body, of looking in the mirror and wondering what if, if you want to grab at the world with all you have to offer, then please, take advantage of this program. I promise you, you will not regret taking this step to love yourself in the present tense.
-Hannah, Portland, OR

Her tremendously powerful work helped me see all the strengths I’ve always had that I always thought were weaknesses. Since working with Golda, my entire view of who I am, what my life is, and how I live in the world has changed for the better.
