ARE YOU AN EMOTIONAL EATER? HERE'S HOW YOU CAN STOP!
ARE YOU AN EMOTIONAL EATER?
If you eat when you are stressed, sad, depressed, bored, anxious or at any time due to the emotions you're feeling, here are some ways you can break that negative cycle.
1. If you're depressed or feeling lonely, pick up your phone and call someone who always puts a smile on your face. Or get in touch with a friend you haven't seen for a while and arrange to see them. It's good to talk to people, especially those who care about you.
2. If you're feeling anxious or stressed, reduce that negative energy by dancing to your favourite song, going for a walk, running yourself a nice hot bubble bath and relaxing in it, or doing something that you know will cheer you up (but not eating!!!).
3. If you're bored, do something that you'll enjoy. Watch a film or catch up on a tv series you've been meaning to see. Go for a walk and explore the outdoors. Or maybe you could take up a new hobby where you may also meet new people.
There are so many things you could do instead of eating. Understanding what makes you emotionally eat is the first step. Then try some of the tips above and see how that helps. And if you need to talk or a helping hand, I'm here for you. Get in touch if you would like my help.
