How to Stop Eating Your Emotions

How to Stop Eating Your Emotions Many of us turn to food when difficult feelings arise. And it’s understandable. Eating is a quick way to adjust our emotions, according to clinical psychologist Susan Albers, PsyD, in her book Eating Mindfully: How to End Mindless Eating & Enjoy a Balanced Relationship with Food.

We’re able to immediately soothe or distract ourselves, she writes. But, of course, eating only stuffs down our emotions. And, in turn, we never process our feelings or truly nourish ourselves.

The result? Our emotions consume us, and we’re left feeling miserable.

In her book, Albers offers valuable ways we can effectively cope with emotions.

These are some of her soothing suggestions.
