Handling Big Emotions Without Food

Mar 02, 2022

It’s ok to experience negative emotions - this is part of the human experience. 

Nothing has gone wrong. 

You don’t have to try to fix them, eat through them, or avoid them; in fact, THIS is often where we go wrong.


If you find yourself reaching for food when you're not truly hungry, you're likely trying to avoid negative emotions.

It could be something like disappointment or uncertainty...

Or it could feel heavier, like grief, depression, or anxiety.

That's why today's episode is all about processing and allowing negative emotions, no matter how big or small they might seem.


You'll learn things like:

  • Why negative emotions make us so uncomfortable.
  • How to be at peace when negative emotions come up.
  • 4 simple steps to process your emotions.
  • How to make hard decisions when experiencing strong negative emotions.


If you'd like my help learning how to allow negative emotions, without needing to eat or drink over them, then I would love to help.
