Episode 206: It’s Okay to Feel Low Right Now AND Not Overeat


What do you do when you wake up and feel low?
Or anxious?
Or worried about things?

If you’ve been listening to me for a while, and you know how your mind works, you might be tempted to think: what can I think to feel better?

You might struggle to think positively so that you don’t overeat.
If you’re an emotional eater, you know how strong this habit can be.

But what if you could have a down day, or a ‘blah’ day, like I sometimes do, and don’t feel compelled to fix it?

You could just accept that ups and downs and in-betweens are all just part of the whole picture of you.
And when you are feeling blah, there is no need to fix anything.

When you don’t like how you feel, you might assume that you need to do something to feel better.
And, do it quickly!

But it’s when you think you ‘shouldn’t’ feel low that you then add to the original low feeling. You might be resisting feeling all the natural emotions, and this leads you to want to run to the escape hatch…quickly!

What’s one of the fastest ways away from a painful emotion?
Whether you are hungry or not.

So, join me today as we explore what you might do with challenging emotions. It’s a skill worth learning.
