Weird way to avoid emotional eating
Mitzi awhile back and she shared something really interesting. Mitzi is a yoga instructor by trade, but is more like Yoda. Give you great insight she can. We share a client who does boot camp and yoga. Mitzi was talking to this client about the main benefit of boot camp for her. The client said the thing she benefits most from the class is that she can get her anger out. It is something I had not really thought about. As a guy, we are pretty straight forward. Get mad, hit something, move on. Not really the same for women is it? They tend to internalize things and let it eat at them. No pun intended. One of the main things I learned at the Emotional Eating Seminar we had awhile back is that people tend to eat emotionally when a need is not being met. (In case you missed the highlights you can go here --->>>Emotional Eating tips for some other great insights) It is ok to get angry! It is ok release your anger in a healthy manner. You know what does nothing? Going on Facebook and putting a vague statement about what is currently making you angry. What is that outlet for you? For me, it is exercise. Specifically it is intense exercise. It is hard to be angry when you are completely exhausted. Punching bags are incredible for this sort of thing. For others it could be running, yoga, or any form of exercise that gets rid of anger. Find that outlet for you and see if it helps you combat emotional eating. If you are looking to do a yoga class or just need a go to person for yoga questions, visit Mitzi's web site. She is always looking to help people ease into yoga, as well as help people who are interested in becoming yoga instructors.
