One of the biggest issues brought to me by clients is this: 'I just don't know how to relax and unwind without food at the end of the day/week'...
Here's the thing: OUR HUMANS BRAINS ARE DESIGNED TO SEEK PLEASURE AND AVOID PAIN. (It's part of something called the Motivational Triad!)
In short, it makes TOTAL sense for us as humans to seek forms of 'Escapism'.
ESCAPISM is defined as a mental diversion within our daily life and /or an 'escape' from the day-to-day routine activities.
I can't tell you how many women I've coached who have told me that they don't know how to relax, and that their ONLY method of escapism involves food.
In this week's podcast episode, I teach you the importance of NOT judging yourself or ANY forms of escapism but instead, to simply understand your mind, your brain, your choices, actions and results so that you can do 'ESCAPISM' ON PURPOSE. (That's ultimately what matters.)
If you feel like food is your only means of escapism, I want to invite you to diversify your options...to explore other means of escapism on purpose that work for YOU.
It's essential that we teach our brain how to relax, unwind, decompress and have other means of escapism that FIT INTO YOUR LIFE; that contribute to your life in a way that works for you.
NOT JUDGING my human brains' desire for escapism (motivational triad, remember!) and INSTEAD doing it 'on-purpose' has revolutionized my life (and results!).
To understand how to choose forms of escapism that work for you- LISTEN NOW.
