Express Your Emotions
Part of the reason we emotionally eat is because many of us are uncomfortable expressing ourselves. Instead of speaking our mind, we share a piece of coffee cake with someone (or ourselves). The next time you feel hurt, ignored or misheard, try this genius idea: talk about it! Tell the person how you’re feeling and try your best to express yourself without being accusatory (often the person who made you feel bad is unaware of their actions). Do this and you’ll not only be one step closer to curbing emotional eating, but you’ll be building confidence in yourself as well.
