Choosing to feel better now?

Do you struggle with emotional eating?

If so, I understand. I hear you. I promise. So I want to share something that someone said to me recently that helped me so much! This is it. Sounds so simple, but its so true. Eating (or drinking) something as a way of coping with difficult emotion is choosing to feel better now! And it works, that’s why so many of us find this to be challenging.

That lead to this thought. Choosing to not have something that tastes good now but makes me feel crummy later must be choosing to feel better later. The truth is difficult emotions come up sometimes, that’s just life. But maybe there’s some other things that could help me feel better now!?

So, here’s the real question….do I want to feel better now or do I want to feel better later!?
