About Aglaée jacob
Aglaée understands how difficult it can be to take control of your physical health, especially when you have digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, or other things going on. She says that these are the easiest aspects of our health to control because you can choose what you eat. But she’s found that since she worked on her emotional and mental health, her overall health as improved.
A lot of it comes down to learning to trust your own body and food again. For many of us, we’ve been cutting foods out and afraid to eat them for fear of bloating, embarrassment, or weight gain. So a lot of the work Aglaée does with her clients helps unblock our emotional connection to food.
Aglaée shares how you can find out if your soul is malnourished and what we can all do, even starting today, to start making it healthy again. All it takes is twenty seconds to find the joy and beauty in something that will breathe some life into your soul again.
One of the biggest problems with people these days is actually loneliness, despite being more connected to the world than we ever were before. The first step to curing loneliness, however, isn’t to find friends, it’s to reconnect with yourself. Fulfilling yourself and filling your own cup has to come first.
Do you feel loneliness? What do you do to fill your soul cup every day? How is your relationship with food?
