HCB's Journal, 09 April 2013

Whewww...I just completed a four day long intensive training! It was great, and if I complete the cycle of training for this treatment modality, I will do three intensives per year for three consecutive years. WOO HOO...

So, the coolest part is that it is a body-focused process for helping people reduce traumatic events - usually accidents, violence, abuse, etc.

The body conscious approach is GREAT for checking in about the experience of hunger and appetite.

People tend to label many many things as "hunger" when it may be other physical and emotional impulses. So, each time I think I am "hungry", I check all areas of my body to see what else may be happening inside.

I ate very well during the training since I brought all my own food = I had too many calories - but the quality all was good.

I am enthused and hopeful.

Let's rock it together!

I am dedicated, determined, and diligent!

Congrats on completing that training! I appreciate what you are saying about hunger because I eat to relive stress and boredom, and sometimes just to give my hands and mouth something to do. Sounds like you've got one step up on those bad habits!

Good for you! You sound so healthy & upbeat -- I love it! What an interesting seminar. I've been reading a lot lately about emotional eating & just as you said so many times while we truly feel hunger, many times its not for food. I'd always assumed if I truly felt hungry, it had to be for food. its been really enlightening. Thanks for the reinforcement! xoxo

That's awesome. I heard once that a lot of times when we are "hungry" we are really thirsty instead.
