Wow! I love this post Michelle. You hit on so many salient points. I’ve been in a funk like this more than once or twice myself. While I am not an emotional eater per se, I have used food to numb myself or other negative habits. And sometimes I have found that I need to just ‘be’. To just experience it and go through it. As they say, sometimes the only way out is ‘through’.
Many times, I go to bed and wake up the next morning feeling on top of the world. This gives power to the school of thought that sometimes you just need to ‘sleep on it’.
Thanks also for sharing a resource if we need help with emotional eating.
