“Is It Worth Tracking Emotions for Mindful Snacking?”
While self-awareness plays a key role in personal growth, tracking emotions to curb emotional eating might not be as effective as one might think. Why? Most people are already aware of their emotional triggers, yet they continue to seek solace in food.
Emotional eating is a coping mechanism to escape pain and achieve pleasure. It provides temporary relief from stress, boredom, frustration, and other unpleasant feelings. But merely knowing the reasons behind this behaviour doesn’t guarantee change.
Understanding a problem in detail doesn’t always lead to a solution. For instance, knowing why your car broke down doesn’t necessarily mean you can fix it. Similarly, identifying emotional triggers won’t eradicate emotional eating. To tackle this issue, we need a two-pronged approach:
By focusing on these two aspects, you’ll be able to regulate your emotions from within and choose how you want to feel, without relying on external factors like food, alcohol, or social media. This internal regulation grants you the freedom to break free from emotional eating and other unhealthy habits.
Our 3-month Intensive program addresses these crucial components, empowering you to make lasting changes where other approaches may have fallen short.
I look forward to speaking to you.
