Welcome to Episode 61 of the Emotional Eats Podcast!

 

In this episode, I share the importance of calming the nervous system to prevent emotional eating, stress eating and overeating. 

 

I explained that when the nervous system is wired up and stressed, people often turn to food as a coping mechanism or escape, even though it only provides temporary comfort. Calming the nervous system can help people be more mindful and present, reducing the urge to emotionally eat. Keywords: nervous system, emotional eating, overeating, coping mechanism, mindfulness.

 

I provide 10 techniques to calm the nervous system including some you know and some you may haven’t thought to do.  Pick the ones that work for you and incorporate them daily to reduce stress and calm yourself to not use food as a coping mechanism.  You want to enjoy food and not eat it mindlessly, but these techniques also help you enjoy life more, too!

 

Highlights:

Calming the nervous system to reduce stress eating. (0:00)

Breathing exercises for relaxation and well-being. (4:36)

Various self-care techniques for managing stress and emotions. (9:09)

Nature walks, calming music, and their impact on calming the nervous system. (13:54)

Calming techniques for the nervous system, including breathing, tapping, journaling, laughter, and communication. (17:48)
