Feed Your Hunger, Starve Your Stress
Are you overwhelmed by life’s demands and responsibilities? Are you juggling a job, a family, trying to maintain a social life and just don’t have time to eat right? Do you always have good intentions, but just can’t follow through?
Too much stress and too little down time can wreak havoc on your ‘good intentions’ to eat healthy.
For example: You’re having a stressful day at work trying to hit a deadline and your constantly thinking about the 800 other things to do when you get home. Do you:
A) Grab a fast ‘to-go’ lunch and scarf it down quickly in-front of your desk?
B) Skip lunch altogether but grab a coffee and a pastry to keep you going?
C) Take a break and calmly eat a mixed green salad in the lunch room?
If you chose A or B that’s a sure sign that you eat because of stress. Stress can be due to the constant demands and responsibilities of our lives, or they can be due to the EMOTIONAL RESPONSE to the stress and demands. We feel frustrated, inadequate, annoyed, and/or anxious so we eat the wrong foods to make ourselves feel better.
This workshop is about identifying the stress and emotions which create our negative eating habits. I’m not sending you home with recipes on how to make green smoothies and kale salads, so here’s how we’ll do it:
- Learn to identify the difference between physical and emotional hunger
- Develop the ability to recognize exactly what you are feeling
- Discuss awareness techniques to release negative emotions and make better food choices
- Establish lifestyle changes so you’re better equipped to deal with stress
