…means to me that you remember you are multidimensional and completely unique.  Like the seasons of the Earth and the phases of the Moon, you change.

You are Wise, Creative, Sensual, Nurturing, and Ambitious.

You are quiet and bold, reserved and wild, a mother and sexy, angry and loving.

 

And because there is no one like you anywhere, you are going to do life, motherhood, work, and self-care differently from everyone.

 

So why are we always trying to fit ourselves into a box? And why is it that even though we so desperately long to create a life that truly feels like OURS, everything seems to get in the way…

 

We’ve been sold this one-size-fits-all solution to happiness. Like if we can just look like a model, get married, buy a cute house, and have a couple kids, then we’ll be completely fulfilled.

Before I had kids, I devoted years of my life to being at peace with my body and challenging the “body box” that so many women feel pressured to fit into. The freedom and joy I experienced birthed my international program Live More Weigh Less, where thousands of women have found freedom from emotional eating and fallen in love with their unique and powerful bodies.

 

When I had my first child, I felt pressure to fit myself into the “good mom” box. I stopped thinking about what I wanted and focused on how a “good mom” is supposed to act.  As I spent my time running errands, making meals for my family, doing laundry, and making sure my kid was getting everything he needed – all while financially supporting my family – I lost touch with who I was and what I wanted.

 

But the truth is that women are innately powerful, insanely unique, and have these wild, magical, creative souls. We can act like 5 different people in the span of a day. This is what makes us amazing.

 

And when we embrace this range of how we express ourselves, and how unique each of us are, we create a life that is as distinct as our fingerprints. None of us are meant to do motherhood the same way, work the same number of hours, or have the same kind of marriage.  When we try to fit ourselves into a box, we lose the magic of who we are.

 

And on top of that, we’re taught that our job as mothers is to run around like crazy making sure our partners and kids are happy and growing, getting to all of their activities, being fed and loved and fulfilled… while we are left too tired and overwhelmed to do the same for ourselves.

 

And what’s even worse, when we get real about how unfulfilled we are and how disconnected we are from our desires and dreams, we feel guilty for wanting more, and we just put on a happy face and keep going like the “good mother” that we should be, wondering why everyone else seems to be enjoying life while we’re starting to feel so empty inside.

 

After I had kids, everything looked great on the outside: Handsome Doctor Husband, cute curly-haired kids, and me with a flashy Instagram feed and successful business. But on the inside I was dissatisfied, overwhelmed, and deeply unhappy.

 

I’d lost my connection to my soul and a higher power, I didn’t feel nourished, I dreaded getting out of bed in the morning, I was constantly in survival mode, and I had no idea who I was or what was going to make me happy. I honestly felt dead inside.

 

Every time Jonathan and I would talk about our future, my throat would tighten. Something about the life we were creating didn’t feel right to me.

 

I finally started to create space for myself, which allowed me to see the ways I was prioritizing the life I felt like I “should want” instead of the life that was a true expression of who I am.

 

I spent the next year soul searching with the intention of forging a deep connection with my soul and the magic that exists in the world around me. And I just kept asking myself, “Who am I and what do I really want?”

 

This led to our buying a retreat center in Medfield, MA, where women come to connect with who they are and what they truly desire. Seeing this dream become a reality so quickly was the most crazy magical thing that’s ever happened to me.  

Jonathan and I strive to create lives that are aligned with who we are and are always watching out for ways in which we feel pressure to fit into a box. Our house is a bit wild, always filled with flowers and magical objects. I strive to create a space that tells the story of our family and who we are as individuals. Since I no longer do a bunch of stuff I don’t want to do, my days can be a mix of work, rituals, and downtime.  

 

Since I’ve embraced the life that is a true expression of me, I have a better with relationship with my children – they are happier and more settled. Jonathan and I are in sync and laugh way more. I’m not immune to the same ups and downs and challenges as a woman, but there’s a comfort and strength I feel from my life being completely mine. I just feel alive, creative, and whole.


 

On this site you will find ways to work with me and connect with other cool spiritual women. My most popular program is Whole Woman, a monthly membership for women who feel too tired and overwhelmed to pay attention to their own dreams and desires but are sick of always trying to fit inside a box and long to create a life that is a true expression of their unique magic.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “There is no “right” type of person to benefit from Sarah’s life-altering work; there is no “one” lifestyle or business strategy that it she is better aligned with. I sat in a room of engineers, mathematicians, health coaches, models and actresses, yoga instructors, and so many more. Some say Spirit, some say Divine Feminine… for me I follow God — but in our hearts as we sat in the circle and supported one another, nothing could be more clear than we were all channeling the same life-giving force and working together to change the world.”

    – Chellie
  • “In 2010, my roommate and I won fluke tickets to an NYC bridal expo, where I first met Sarah. Her celebration of pleasure, the body, joy, beauty, and gratitude immediately impacted me. Her emails started to have a HUGE impact on my life right away… even though, she was a weight loss coach! I wasn’t really trying to lose any weight, but her method, which was all about infusing life with so much magic and pleasure that food could be FOOD rather than an escape, still resonated so much. Ultimately, she was teaching women to listen to their bodies, lead with their hearts, and learn from their intuition. She has truly been one of the most profound teachers of my life.”

  • “Sarah has a unique way of getting to the heart of what you need versus what you believe you need.”

  • Happy Autumn Equinox!! Today is a day of balance. Our planet is in such a position that the length of day is equal to the length of night, and we are supported in taking the next step on our growth cycle.

In my life and in Whole Woman, we use the cycles of nature and the moon to guide our personal growth. On the spring equinox we planted seeds, set intentions for the year and tended to the growth of what we are stepping into. In the summer we celebrated all of what we had worked so hard for during the spring and reveled in the fullness of our life. And now on the Fall Equinox we take stock of all that we have and decide what we want to keep and what we need to release.

Almost every woman I’ve met admits to be overcommitted to the needs of others. Our hearts and calendars are full of doing things for other people. Especially the summer encourages us to have full social calendars, lots of travel and if you’re a Mom, lots of time making sure our kids have a good summer.

So the way to come into balance is to RELEASE, just like the trees are releasing their leaves. It’s time to make space, to take things off your plate, to say no. It’s important to shift from giving to others to giving to you. This is how we come into balance.

Today we’re starting “Back To Me”, a free 7-day program where you’ll be guided to doing 1 practice a day to get your life force back no matter how exhausted you feel. We’re doing it as a community and it’s not too late to sign up or invite your friends to join us. 
Click on the link in my profile to join Back To Me, it’s free!

We have families, old college roommates and friend groups doing it together. How amazing to have your whole group of friends doing this together? 
Our first practice is the perfect thing to do this evening on the Equinox, so I hope you’ll join us, and I’m also sending you two other fall equinox rituals and today is Moonday email. If you’re not signed up for Moonday emails, just download my sacred playlist, There’s a link for that on my profile as well.

I’d love to know, what are you releasing today? We can all hold space for each other and have a mini ritual here. 📷 of our family’s equinox dinner last night!
  • I used to be a people pleaser.
I used to be a peace keeper.
I used to be everyone's best friend.
But I wasn't pleased with myself.
And I didn't feel peaceful.
And I was a terrible friend to myself.
Now I disappoint a lot of people, and I am happy.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tomorrow we start “Back to Me” simple (yet radical) practices to relearn how to prioritize yourself. For me, this is the foundation of having the courage to be yourself and create your most epic life. If you can’t take care of yourself, what you dream for your life will never come true because you will always be too busy trying not to disappoint other people.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hope you’ll join us! It’s free and we start tomorrow. Visit the link in my profile to sign up.
  • When was the last time you did something just for you that didn’t involve a glass of wine or a bar of chocolate 🤔? Something that didn’t involve kids or work or doing something for a friend or family member? Just something soft and warm and nourishing to your soul?

Can’t really think of anything?

I get it. Been there. Like last week. But I now know after years of never carving out space for me (even though I talked about doing it all the time) that taking the time for me is critical.  If I don’t, my mental health suffers, my emotional eating and drinking gets triggered and I start to spiral and it feels awful.

I used to think it took too much time and was too expensive to take care of myself, that what I really needed was a month at a spa in Bali. And to be honest, maybe it was 🤷🏼‍♀️ but I have 3 littles who I’d miss and that’s not how I roll. BUT there are some small daily practices I do that stoke my life force, that make me feel like a woman, that make me feel feminine and soft and relaxed and whole.

I wanted to share them with you so I’m hosting a free week long program called “Back To Me: Simple practices to take your life back, know your worth & feel alive no matter how drained, overwhelmed and far gone you feel.” We already have over a thousand women signed up (can you imagine us all spending a week together at a huge retreat center doing this!? Omg. Some day! For now, virtual is cool) and it would be incredible to have you. All you have to do is sign up in my profile. It’s free and I’m not launching a program or anything, it’s just a sweet time for us to get back on track together.

With me? Give your fave “back to me” emoji below. Mine is 🧙🏻‍♀️👩🏼‍🌾👯‍♀️.
  • I probably sound like a broken record at this point but I think it is so important for us to understand that our inner voice that tells us we are selfish or indulgent for taking care of ourselves is part of the brainwashing that keeps women in a constant state of overwhelm and adrenal fatigue so that we can’t access our own innate power and overthrow this patriarchal culture.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Taking care of yourself helps you to remember your individuality, your authentic excellence, your fierce power. And when you connect with and remember that part of you, you can’t help but make your mark on the world and make the changes we so desperately need to see.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So next time that voice comes up that you don’t have time or that your kids are more important or your job is more important or your partner is more important that EVERYONE ELSE is more important than your well-being, remember that that’s what they want you to think and it’s just not true. If you are shell of a human all of those people who you love so dearly will not flourish because you will have nothing to give, and your children won’t have the modeling of what it means to be a powerful person in the world and they will also have the brainwashing when they are adult that it is selfish to take care of themselves. Let’s not perpetuate this brainwashing.

GIVE ME A ✨HELL YES✨ BELOW IF YOURE DONE WITH PERPETUATING THIS CYCLE! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
On Monday, I’m guiding women through seven days of nourishing themselves. Each day you will receive one very simple, easy to accomplish act that will start to give you back your life force. We already have hundreds of women signed out and I hope that you will join us. Link in profile.

  • Is anyone completely exhausted from the past 3 weeks? 🙋🏼‍♀️ Double tap if you’re with me.

I feel like the back to school energy completely engulfed me. There was definitely a stretch of 3 days I didn’t shower, goofed on a few work things and haven’t been able to get off my kids emotional roller coaster. My nervous system is basically toast.

I’ve learned to embrace these chaotic times (finally) but they really do leave me feeling drained, exhausted and not exactly  pumped to go for it with my own life and projects. You can’t pour from an empty cup. 
I know I need a time of replenishment, and I thought you might too, so starting on Monday I’m hosting a completely free seven day program called “Back to Me” (like after back to school comes back to me... get it? 😂) Everyday you get 1 simple action to take your life back, know your worth & feel alive no matter how drained, overwhelmed and far gone you feel.  I’m not selling a program at the end of it, this is just a time for us to get together and cheer each other on for making the time to get our life force back after over giving to everyone else.

Just visit https://sarahjenks.com/backtome and invite someone below to do it with you!
