We are back after a short hiatus for Episode 16. We talk about how it is important to take a step back to ground yourself when you feel like things are causing anxiety, sadness, or anger. Typically Jacqueline felt these feelings and emotions and used food as a coping mechanism. Taking this break gave Jacqueline some time to really think about these emotions and think about why she wants to eat or turn to food. Taking the time to breathe, get some movement in, crying, journaling, or taking a hot shower or bath are some of the ways that Jacqueline has learned to ground herself and get back to the basics when she finds herself wanting to turn to food. We discuss these tactics and why Jacqueline has really leaned on in these past few weeks while we were taking a break. We think that these are great coping mechanisms that will apply to many areas of life when life seems to be spiraling out of control and you are being overcome with emotions. We truly appreciate your love and support as we continue on this podcast journey!
