When I’m anxious or stressed, I want to eat. It must be some kind of comfort mechanism that I turn to when I’m not processing my feelings in a more healthful manner.
It’s a problem – I get it. But how do I fix it?
Today was one of those days when I needed help with my food intake because I was anxious. There are a lot of uncertainties in the world right now, and I suppose they just all piled up.
I needed comfort. I needed to eat. I wasn’t physically hungry, but I needed to eat.
So what did I do? I ate.
However, I really did try to keep it under control.
I ate fruit, I ate soup, and 3 very small pieces of candy.
The question is: how do I keep from doing this again?
How do I fix myself?
I’ll let you know what I figure out.
