3 CRITICAL THINGS TO UNDERSTAND 

TO CREATE FREEDOM FROM EMOTIONAL EATING: PART 1


Hi Beautiful friends!!

Sending you love from Washington State!

I love talking about the brain-it’s the most amazing gift & machine on the planet. How fortunate we are to have a brain! I mean it! I’m not a neural scientist, nor do I claim to be, I just love learning about it so that I can be more happy, efficient & successful by learning the basics about programming my own mental “software”.

I want to share with you 3 critical points to understand about your brain to help you begin to create emotional freedom & healing around food.

3 CRITICAL POINTS: Our brain is wired instinctively to:

1    **Seek Pleasure

2    **Avoid Pain/Discomfort

3    **Be Efficient
       
       (WE WILL DISCUSS **AVOID PAIN & **BE EFFICIENT IN PARTS 2 & 3 NEXT 2 BLOGS)
Ok, you might be asking, why is this important or relevant. 

Well…let me explain what each one looks like & then we’ll get to that.

1-FIRST: THE BRAIN’S WIRING TO SEEK PLEASURE:

Our brains are wired instinctively to seek pleasure. In other words, our brains seek to repeat things that “feel” good because that’s the way our brain sends our body information that it could be a good thing and if we keep doing that, it could help us stay alive.

The challenge with this is that there are TONS of things out in the world that may “feel” good for a moment, but they have a cumulative negative result.

FOR EXAMPLE: Eating a pint of ice cream or a pan of brownies, or cereal or snacks late at night ONLY “feels good” for a short amount of time when we are feeling sad, disappointed, let down, afraid. 

It “feels good” for a short amount of time because of the extra concentrated chemical hit of the sugar but as you know, it doesn’t provide long-lasting well-being.  

The brain registers the sugar hit as an easy way to numb out some of the emotions—then our brain focuses on the hit of sugar instead of the emotions we are experiencing & THEN OUR BRAIN SCREAMS: DO THAT AGAIN!
It can be a vicious cycle when we don’t understand that our brain’s own wiring to seek pleasure doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with us, it just means we have a human brain.

It can be a vicious cycle being caught in it the downward spiral & not knowing how to get out OR understanding that there is a way to get out! 

AND THERE IS A WAY TO GET OUT! IT IS POSSIBLE!

This is what I teach & coach on in my program Create Freedom From Emotional eating.

HUGS & LOVES TO YOU,
