When you reach for that next chocolate bar, bag of crisps or umpteenth biscuit be mindful of why!
If you learn to pause before taking the first emotional bite just long enough to allow yourself to fully experience your emotion, you would not need to eat as a way to distract or suppress them. .
Once you’ve paused, you have a choice.
You can choose to eat, or you can choose to allow your feelings. .
Observe and allow whatever arises until it changes and you feel a sense of release, or some loosening or opening up.
This will not take as long as you might think! When we allow our e-motions – they do just that – move!
When we resist, suppress, discount, ignore or distract from them, with food; or screens, shopping, sex, books, work etc.; they stick around and resurface later.🙈
