Emotional Eating and Healthy Food Relationships



Emotional eating, sometimes known as "comfort eating," is the practice of turning to food in times of stress, melancholy, boredom, or worry.

Mind-body connection: Pay attention to your feelings of hunger and fullness and respond accordingly. 

If you eat when you're upset, try exercising, deep breathing, writing, or talking to a friend or professional.

To develop emotional awareness, recognize and interpret your feelings. Focus on feelings instead than food.

Good Eating Habits Try to use food for more than just emotional support. Health benefits from a diversified, nutrient-rich diet.

Listen to your body's hunger, fullness, and happiness rather than obeying rules or reacting to emotions.

Care for Yourself Emphasize Relaxation, Stress Reduction, and General Health and Wellness.
