Many women struggle with weight loss, feeling comfortable in their skin, and dealing with menopause symptoms. Kim explains that using food as a coping mechanism is often the easiest way to cope when you need to address the underlying emotions, stress, and unresolved issues in our lives. 

This brings us to one of the many things that can make it hard to stay on track.  The main topic of the episode is clutter.  Believe it or not physical, digital, and mental - can contribute to emotional eating and sabotage your efforts towards a healthy lifestyle.

Kim shares her own embarrassing experiences with clutter, such as too many unread emails in her inbox and struggling to let go of clothes from different sizes. She discusses the various forms of clutter and how clutter bombards our senses, creates mental fatigue, breeds anxiety and procrastination, and ultimately leads us to use food as a coping mechanism.

The episode provides practical tips for decluttering, such as setting a timer for 10 minutes to tackle one area at a time, unsubscribing from unnecessary emails and social media accounts, and turning off notifications that cause distractions. Kim emphasizes the importance of creating a calm, clutter-free environment to reduce stress, improve focus, and promote overall well-being.

Additionally, Kim introduces the concept of "mental clutter" – toxic relationships, negative self-talk, and limiting beliefs that weigh us down emotionally. She encourages listeners to reclaim their space, both physically and mentally, by letting go of anything that no longer serves them, in order to make room for joy, creativity, and self-care.
