How quickly do you digest your emotions? Wait, what does that mean? Don't worry. I'm here to explain it to you - and help you reliably (and consistently) digest your emotions so you can get into a relaxed state before each meal.
To catch you up, we're looking at the 2nd tool in a 7-part series learning HOW you eat is just as important (if not more important) than WHAT you eat. If you haven't read the last post, click here to get up to speed!
Today I want to discuss eating in an emotional state. Have you ever had the experience of eating when you're super stressed out? Like there is just something you can't shake, can't get out of your head? And it's time to eat, but you're totally worked up and in the stress response? I mean, of course, you have. We ALL have been there.
So, because of what we're learning in this series, we know that our body can't digest food when it's in the stress response, right? It doesn't even make sense. Again, it's the natural fight or flight response. Our body can't tell the difference between the stress caused by being chased by a tiger or getting yelled at by our boss... It just diverts all the energy away from the digestive system and stops production altogether.
So, in this case, before trying to digest food, what we really need to be digesting is our FEELINGS. Enter Emotional Brain Training... This is such a cool little hack that produces huge results. It's really one of my favorite tools I've learned in my training so far.
So, what is Emotional Brain Training, or EBT for short? EBT is a science-based program built to rewire patterns of anxiety, depression, overeating, and unhealthy habits by using a specific and easy to implement set of tools. And, yes I'm going to give you a cheat sheet for it. In fact, if you subscribe to my weekly newsletter, you've already received it.

When I work with clients around emotional eating, this single tool can be so powerful. The transformation they experience is like nothing I've seen and I LOVE watching the empowerment grow within each and every one of them.
