Your emotions are super important.
Emotions are your body’s way of trying to get your attention.
Were you taught to ignore them or squash them down?
Did your parents expect you to not feel or hide your anger, frustration, boredom or whatever other uncomfortable feelings you had?
Maybe you learned that expressing these emotions was wrong.
When you ignore your feelings or bury them under a lot of sweets or chips or whatever, you are ignoring yourself, your body and your needs.
Ignoring your emotions is downright unhealthy. Eating to avoid feeling them is a very temporary remedy. It may make you feel better for a short while, but whatever caused those feelings you’re eating to avoid will still be there long after the food has left your mouth and the pleasure is gone.
In this episode, I’m introducing another tool for managing your emotions so that you don’t eat to avoid them. This method, which was developed by psychologist Julia Colwell, helps you experience the emotion, learn from it and let it go. It’s so liberating!
You might want to take notes and write down the steps, which I set forth in detail, then summarize at the end of the podcast.
