When Chris and I were real estate agents in San Francisco, most of our business came to us from referrals from our existing clients.
We were lucky. We liked our clients and they liked us, so to honor that mutual like and trust, we did our best to provide helpful information that they cared about well after the completion of the purchase or sale of their home.
One of the things we were diligent about was publishing a monthly newsletter about what impacted home values, statistics about where the market was, our newest restaurant find, and what fun, cool thing was happening in the city.
They loved it. And for some reason, I really resisted writing it.
I don’t really know why. It wasn’t that long, nor was it particularly hard.
But the end of the month would roll around, and I’d find myself staring at the blinking cursor trying to rally some kind of inspiration.
Instead of writing, I’d find myself snacking a LOT.
I could barely sit long enough to write more than a couple of sentences and then I was up and rummaging through our snack cupboard.
I wasn’t hungry—I was avoiding. Trying to distract myself from something I didn’t want to do.
Many of us eat not because we’re hungry, but because we’re bored, trying to find distraction from a task, a situation, or an emotion we don’t want to deal with.
In this week’s episode, Fiona and I talk about what (from frequency level) causes us to emotionally or compulsively eat, and how we can overcome it.
The Group Frequency Calibration® (GFC) associated with this episode will help you to begin to clear the distortion patterns that cause emotional eating and the patterns of guilt, non-worthiness, and shame that often come along with experience.
Without clearing these distortion patterns we can feel like we’re out of control when it comes to food. And it doesn’t have to be that way.
Let’s rise together!™
Have you ever noticed yourself eating when you’re stressed out, bored, or just procrastinating? Often when we eat, we’re not even particularly hungry—we’re eating compulsively because we’re seeking comfort, soothing ourselves. We’re eating for emotional reasons.
In this episode we talk about what emotional eating is, what causes us to eat compulsively even if we’re not really hungry, and what the best way is to help us stop what can feel like out-of-control and self-sabotaging behavior.
