Health and Human Design

Research shows when you feel good mentally and emotionally, this impacts your physical health too! Most of us don't need science to tell us this because we can feel it.
I am a Registered Dietitian and use a functional nutrition approach to get the root of issues. In addition, I use Human Design as a tool to help bring my clients more ease, awareness, fulfillment, and happiness into their lives. Why? This always trickles into your food choices, energy levels, eating habits, and often times any weight loss effort you want.

Here's where to start to determine what lights you up in your daily activities and life:

Do More of What You Love, When You Want

In Human Design, I am a Manifesting Generator. A Manifesting Generator is multi-passionate, impactful, magnetic, and is meant to follow the passions you feel energized by at that moment, even if it seems like you're bouncing around from thing to thing. I am meant to lean into play and happiness, and doing this creates more energy to continue. Doing what excites me makes me magnetic and this actually attracts things to me and gives me things to respond to.

When I found out I was a Manifesting Generator, I knew I had to shift my day to do more of the things I love. I did and immediately felt a change for the better in my energy. It helped create more success, ease, and satisfaction in my life. What did I do to create that shift? I made two lists and from there made a conscious effort to start changing my day based on my findings.

I believe all the Human Design Types will benefit from this activity of determining what lights you up.

Make a List of What Lights You Up

The first thing I did was take inventory and asked myself, “What Are the Things in Everyday Life That Excite Me?” Write down your list.

Ask yourself these questions to help make your list:

  • What situations, people, activities make me respond, “Heck yes!” I will feel like an energy boost, or the body feels expansive about the thing.

  • What makes me genuinely happy?

  • Who do I love spending time with? Who makes me feel alive and happy?

  • What do I spend hours googling or wanting to learn more about?

  • What situations make me feel like time flies because I’m so into it? What could I spend hours doing?

  • What do people come to me for?

Luckily, my list was long! It included things like dancing, hiking with friends and family, doing yoga, cats/kittens, drinking bulletproof coffee, making matcha lattes, researching topics I’m interested in, new traveling adventures, the beach, being in nature, listening to music, talking about nutrition, being with my friends, reaching out to friends and family when I think about them, learning about human design, journaling, and the list goes on.

Get really micro with your list to truly find what energizes you. For example, WHY do I like talking about nutrition? I like to help solve people's problems and dilemmas around food. WHY? I want them to feel empowered in their nutrition decisions and take away the confusion. WHY? I love empowering people - that's what lights me up. Call it ironic, but Empowerment is a huge theme in my Human Design chart :)

Make a List of What Sucks the Energy Out of You

The other list I made was: “What Are the Things in Everyday Life that Suck the Energy out of me?”

Ask yourself these questions to make your list:

  • What are the things you do either daily or weekly that make you feel bored, drained, exhausted, or “turned off?"

  • Think about things you have a difficult time finding the energy for. What is it about that thing that drains you?

For me, this included things like stressing about unprepared dinner plans, too much TV time at night, doing the dishes, house cleaning, watching a movie, sitting too long, packing school lunches, making afterschool snacks.

Next Step..

From here, make a point to remove just one thing daily from the “energy-sucking” list.

For me, the first to go was TV time at night. I found friends to walk with, things to read, podcasts to listen to, things to study, and other activities I loved. It made a HUGE difference in my satisfaction.

This list brought awareness to the things I was putting energy toward that drained me, and how often I was doing that. As a Manifesting Generator, when I’m sucked into things that drain me, I quickly start feeling frustrate, bitter, and have zero energy to put toward the thing I don’t want to do. It’s not a good feeling.

Take-home Message

Doing more of the things I truly love is like the magic wand that makes my life so much more in flow and more magnetic. Doing less of the things that drain me or always serving other people will create space for transitions in life and real “YES’s!” to come my way.

What is Parent Coaching?

"Parent Coaching is an invitation to consider new information regarding present, everyday challenges; not requiring healing, but fresh approaches. Coaches use techniques such as questioning, stories, metaphors and affirmations to help clients participate deeply in their own change process." ~ Gloria DeGaetano

What is not Parent Coaching?

Coaching is often mistaken for therapy or other types of mental health treatments. During the coaching process it is almost a certainty that I am going to touch upon areas related to emotional and mental well-being, but I am not providing therapy.
I am not a licensed psychologist or specialist healthcare professional. My services do not replace the care of psychologists or other healthcare professionals.

Are you licensed and insured?

Coaches do not yet require licensure to practice their profession however, I have completed Parent Coaching Certification Training at Parent Coaching Institute. I also carry a policy for private practice professional liability through Forrest T. Jones & Company.
