Put down the potato chips and no one gets hurt ✋
Hi, I’m Lindsay and I am a recovering boredom eater. If you identify as a mindless muncher or over grazer, it’s your lucky day. I’m going to share with you my top secret tips to overcome boredom eating.
Here’s the deal: Boredom eating is a type of emotional eating and guess what? We are all emotional eaters to some extent.
Over time, you develop learned eating patterns based on how you feel. You establish a neurologic pathway in your brain so the next time you experience the same feeling, your body yearns to repeat the same behavior.
The good news: You can break the habit and retrain your brain to cope with boredom (or any emotion) in a new way. At the end of the day, emotional eating is just a coping mechanism.
Learn a new way to cope and your life will turn DOPE.
It’s difficult to quit a learned behavior cold turkey. The three-step-process provided above is needed to rewire your brain to align with a new supportive habit.
Practice is required, so don’t give up after one go. Keep at it and the need to rely on food to deal with your problems will gradually fade away.
Food freedom is possible.
You must shift your mind to change your life.
