Recently, I have gone through some serious changes in my life. For awhile, I was incredibly upset, even angry. I hated myself, and because of that, I found myself disliking most of the people around me.
Then, I decided enough was enough.
Don't get me wrong. The transformation didn't happen over night. I still found myself in those situations where I caught myself acting jaded, but I did something about it.
Every time I catch myself getting down or reaching for some food to alleviate that stress... I ask myself, "Why are you really upset?" 9/10 times, it isn't the thing that is annoying you. Sure, the guy in front of you in the grocery store who is paying in pennies and nickels may be annoying, but there is no reason to truly stress over it. So, why are you angry? Maybe you are unhappy at work or school. Maybe your relationship is struggling. Whatever you figure out, once you get to the root, that is where you have to make the change.
Emotional eating is a problem, but forcing yourself to continue to eat healthy is only part of the battle. You have to be able to fix your mindset as well. Being healthy in both body and mind is the only way to really live a healthy life.
I know this is a bit of a rant, but I wanted to share my experience with everyone. If even one person finds this helpful, it was worth it to type it all out.
Emotional eating sucks. It is the reason why I, and many people, are on this site to begin with. The upside is that you can break that trend. It just takes a little time, effort, and introspection.
