Emotions and foods are closely tide together. We all have that one food we turn to when emotions strike, whether it is sad, anxious, home sick, or mad, all we want to do is eat that one food for relief.
It’s ok from time to time to have your comfort food in moderation, but finding a healthy outlet for your emotions is very important. When your emotions strike and all you want to do is eat chocolate, ice cream or whatever your go to food is, pick another outlet to relieve stress like walking.
Lately, when I feel stressed out or overwhelmed instead of picking up a candy bar and eating a bowl of ice cream I go for a walk in the park.
