an all-or-nothing thinker?
maybe a catastrophic thinker?
someone who likes things in their  control?

have a lot of 'rules' around food, as good and bad?
experience stress or anxiety, overwhelm or frustration that gets in the way of your health goals?
have 'good' days and 'bad' days?
believe changing your health is hard?
believe maybe you can't actualy achieve the health goals you set?




For sustainable, permanent, and meaningful change, you first have to learn how to THINK DIFFERENTLY.

Thinking is the cause;
behavior is the symptom.

Stress, anxiety, overwhelm, depression, despair, hopelessness, frustration, confusion, busyness, pride, worry, fear, concern, anger, discouragement, doubt, blame, guilt, insecurity, unworthiness, grief, victim, boredom, impatience…

emotional Habits

Perfectionism, all-or-nothing thinking, overthinking, catastrophic thinking, obsessive thinking (circling), storytelling (perception distortion), indecisiveness, drama
queen-isms/melodrama, analysis paralysis, identity attachment (that’s not me, I couldn’t do that, that’s just how I am)

Thought Habits

•Fear of the unknown
•Fear of failing/succeeding
• Belief in one’s unworthiness
•Fear of ‘rocking the boat’
•Fear of what others will think of you
•Belief in ‘I don’t have time’ or
‘I don’t feel like it’ or ‘I don’t deserve it’
or ‘I can do it myself/ should be able
to do it myself’

(or being afraid) it’s possible.

Thinking is the cause; behavior is the symptom. For successful behavior change, start first by changing how you think. 

More knowledge without integration into your life will do nothing. This is experiential learning

Change in our children, our families and even our world, starts with a change in ourselves.

There is no greater way to be in control of your health than to accept your current reality and learn how to change it through honest inventories, evidence-based behavior change work, and objective measures.

Through the implementation of the Nuuaria(R) program, you will cultivate the 15 inner qualities required for permanent and sustainable change:

Self-Awareness; Self-efficacy; Empathy; Agency; Stress Management; Acceptance; Self-Regulation; Self-Examination; Resiliency; Self-Direction; Executive Functioning; Sense of Belonging; Growth Mindset; Relevance of Good Health, and Purpose

Changing how you think will challenge your beliefs and ways of living. Changing your health by changing how you think is the gateway that allows change into your whole life.
