The holidays can be stressful... unrealistic expectations and certain family dynamics may cause you to reach for food to comfort and calm yourself.
Can you practice mindful self-compassion instead? Can you carve out time every day to re-group, meditate for a few minutes or simply sit quietly and take a few deep breaths?
Place your hands over your heart and tune in to your energy and stress levels. Talk to yourself as if you were a child in need of reassurance and love. That's the way out of emotional eating.
Be kind and gentle with yourself this holiday season.💜
