Emotional Eating Help Video Tip #11: Lighten Up!

emotional eating help strategyWe can be so hard on ourselves! Problem is, it usually makes things worse instead of better. When you are trying to control emotional eating or overcome overeating, it’s tempting to take a hardline, “get tough” approach.

The problem is, any approach based on willpower and self-discipline has its limits (and don’t we really deserve more compassion and kindness?). For long term success with eating habits, the best approach is always an approach that FITS you, takes into account your needs, and is flexible when life gets challenging.

Today’s emotional eating help tip is about approaching change with lightness—even playfulness—and avoiding perfectionism.

What do you think? Would things flow differently if you launched your next attempt to stop overeating with playfulness and permission to tweak your approach as you go along? What would be different if—instead of feeling like you “blew it” when you got off track, you saw that as a signal to readjust or make a change in your approach? I’d love to hear your thoughts on this!

Take good care,
