How to Nourish Your Craving Brain & Build Resilience

Have you ever wondered why it is so difficult to reduce cravings and get rid of bad habits?

Cravings are motivational states that give us the urge to - for example - seek out and consume a particular food. You know the feeling - no matter what you eat, you’re not satisfied until you eat that one, specific snack.

These uncontrollable urges may relate to sugar, alcohol, obsessive worry, overspending etc It doesn’t matter what your vice is during this workshop you will learn practical tools to build your inner resilience and nourish your nervous system in a comprehensive and consistent way.

Your rational mind wants the great beach body, but your emotional mind wants the cookie, or glass (or more) of wine. Drawing from research in functional nutrition, neuroscience and somatic (body) psychology you’ll discover how specific foods, movements and relaxation techniques can help you calm and regulate your body/mind in a healthy, sustainable way.

Jolene Park will share the science behind why it’s important to replenish your neurotransmitter and nourish our nervous systems. You will learn how to support your individual biochemistry and regulate your fight, flight, freeze stress response.

During the workshop you’ll learn:

  • Why you crave what you crave
  • Easy ways to boost your neurotransmitters
  • Secific exercises, techniques to reset and bounce back from stress
  • 10 essential nutrients that everyone needs
  • Natural anxiety remedies
  • Superfoods for a healthy gut and brain
  • How to naturally boost your energy and reduce sugar cravings
  • Strategies for deep regenerative sleep that can help you lose weight too!
  • How to close the gap between self-sabotage and the procrastination

Join us for an interactive, experiential 2-hour training on brain chemistry and cravings.
