Worry, Anxiety & Comfort Eating
We all worry, especially now. Some worry is necessary for addressing what matters to us. Like anger, worry helps us to avert danger or discomfort. But, like anger, we aren't usually taught how to cope with worry. So, worry can be another major reason why you might overeat or binge-eat.
The overeater's main worry is often about how you look. Learn to replace fear and avoidance with curiosity and compassion.
This podcast begins with a Q & A section (questions provided by you). Then, I’ll share with you:
- What anxiety or worry is.
