I think about emotions a lot.
Not just because I teach people how to kick the emotional eating habit so they can fix what’s causing them to overeat.
I think about them for other reasons, too.
One is because I’m an emotional person. I wasn’t taught to suppress my feelings, and I don’t have trouble expressing them. I have trouble NOT expressing them.
Another is because my husband was taught by his parents to suppress his emotions, and learned how detrimental that approach was on many levels.
In other words, emotions play a large role in both my work and home life.
So when I was listening to Glennon Doyle talk about emotions in her We Can Do Hard Things podcast episode 24, it got me thinking about how to get the point across to my listeners and students just how super important it is to stop eating to avoid your feelings, not just because it is the doorway to weight loss and a life of enjoying food without struggling with your weight, but because if you want to live a fully human life, it’s necessary to understand your emotions, use the information they provide you, and to feel them, both the fun ones and the not-so-fun ones.
Tune in and learn why being human is not just about feeling happy, it’s about feeling everything, and the importance of befriending all of your emotions.If you’re ready to kick the emotional eating habit for good, start with my free video masterclass, available on demand HERE
