It’s time Hack Emotional Eating!
I truly believe in trimming down though and through. Lighter everything instantly stands for increased flow. So, I will not be packing your e-mail by messaging you every day. I know, I know all marketing specialists would tell me to do so otherwise, but I believe in walking my talk.
So today I’ll be speaking of the power of getting Trim from Within! What does getting trim from within mean? It means literally travelling lighter in all aspects of your life, starting today!
I spoke of your e-mail list just above, that’s only to give you an idea on getting rid of clutter. That’s just an example. To really get to the core and the nit and grit of your losing weight – or at least starting to trim down – is dealing with your emotions and toxic relationships; as those are a straight line to comfort foods and over-eating.
I still won’t lecture you on how those comfort foods affect your body, as I’m fairly positive you already know it all… about that. I will be talking about the three core emotions that keep you falling off the wagon.
1. Anxiety – also known (and more popularly known as) stress… A meeting with your boss, a heavily loaded work-day, traffic, DEBT (financial or emotional), politics you name it. Endorphins needed!!!
2. Sadness/Pain/Grief – any loss. Literally any loss. We don’t seem to grow much through time, do we? Do you recall when you cried over a doll or a toy car? Bad news is, in a way, you still do! We all do. Say you lose your I-phone 10, or your favorite technology gadget; or cannot buy it. You’ll get comfort food instead, right? Again, think of the break-up ice-cream scene of any movie.
3. GUILT – ah! This is a heavy one, perhaps the heaviest in the list. There are so many things we feel guilty for, so very many! The most popular among super-busy over-achievers?a) I didn’t go to the gym AGAIN! Ugh, I cannot make time for even that; b) I didn’t get to my family reunion for working, I got too late to see my kid/s off to bed (again!) Ugh!; c) I failed at … (fill it with whichever thing you want on this list). The problem with guilt is that guilt is the mother of all addictions and mindless activities. As guilt is a combination of anxiety and sadness with the extra point of self-blame and typically, self-demanding (possibly through unrealistic goals or lack of boundaries).
So, if you want to trim from within…
Start tackling those emotions by cleansing the people and activities that trigger them; you could change the meaning of the interaction or just stop seeing that person or avoiding the activity.
Get into emotional liberation practices like EFT.
Make your goals more REALISTIC and ELIMINATE or MINIMIZE your self-demand. Yes, goals should be ambitious, but not overwhelmingly so. I’ll speak about those in my next article.
And of course, to succeed START TODAY! Take ONE action, ideally one you can stack up into a habit.
