Today I wanted to share with you something more fun! I wanted to share 5 tips to help soothe the nervous system.
How does this come into play for an emotional eater?
When I would emotionally eat I used food to soothe myself. I used it to avoid my emotions. When I got to the root of my emotional eating I had to process and resolve the emotions underneath. This is the deep work that processes emotions in the body and subconscious mind.
Today I want to share some ways to “cope” and soothe the nervous system. This will not get to the root of your emotional eating but will help you manage the overwhelm a bit better and even get you ready to dive deeper!
Tips Mentioned to Soothe the Nervous System for Emotional Eaters
