Want to thrive? Choose nourishing over numbing- here’s how!

fullsizerender I’m passionate about ridiculously simple, research-based tools that support us to thrive. One of my favorite go-to tools is my NOURISH CARD.

This tool is where science meets soul and puts it into action!

Every day we humans (yes all of us) come up against uncomfortable moments – vulnerable human moments. We’re stretching ourselves in new ways, venturing into new territory, or having a ‘triggering’ experience (you know, one of those darn growth opportunities!). Sometimes it’s big, but often so small and so subtle we don’t even notice it.

Running on automatic pilot, we are hard-wired to move away from the discomfort of being human.

Our brain interprets that discomfort as a threat. As a result we unconsciously choose to numb ourselves out, distract ourselves, take the edge off with… a glass of wine, surfing netflix, numbing out on social media, ‘comforting’ ourselves with chips, chocolate, new shoes…

Numbing takes you down in a negative spiral, away from the discomfort.

Nourishing lifts you up, it gives you the loving support and capacity to move through the discomfort, rather than run away from it.

The ability to in the moment to consciously choose nourishing over numbing -to choose upward spiral rather than down- is the key to thriving in your life rather than merely surviving through it.

This simple yet ridiculously powerful tool that is going to help you do just that!

Creating my own NOURISH CARD has been transformational. I’ve also witnessed the magic this simple tool has worked in the lives of many, just like you, who decided to give it a try.

I’m thrilled to share this with you!  This short and fun PLAYbook will dive into more depth and walk you through the WHY and HOW of creating and using your very own NOURISH CARD.

Let’s get this powerhouse tool working for you today.  May I send it to you now?

And be sure to share with us what made it on to your list!

Big Love, Tanis

  1. I’m ready thrive and leave behind the negative unnecessary “stuff”
    I have all this positive loving nurturing emphatic hesling energy inside of me but it’s not flowing – I can feel it’s stuck

    1. Sending you lots of love Kim. Thank you for sharing. If you’d like to connect feel free to reach out through an email and we can set up a call. It sounds like nourishing yourself, plus a whole lot of loving curiosity will be key to getting that energy flowing. I wonder what it might look like to welcome ALL the stuff with compassionate curiosity? Sometimes when something is stuck, we’re not yet clearly hearing a message from some part of ourselves, and that once we can hear and honour it, things can begin to move. I’m here if you’d like to talk. Big Love to you.
