Is it a Mental Discomfort?
Is your mind tired? Have you been thinking and or sitting in front of a computer all day? Sometimes we can be really into what we are doing and ignore our minds when they are becoming tired or exhausted. Since our minds don’t typically speak up and say, "Hey dude.. I could really use a break right now", instead, you find yourself grabbing the chip bag to help you push through those mental tasks.
Next time, recognize if you’ve been at it for a while mentally, and you are really wanting those Miss Vickies Jalapeño Kettle Chips, it’s time to give your mind a rest. Walk away from the computer screen. Go do something mindless and enjoyable for awhile.
Is it an Emotional Discomfort?
Time to check in on how you are feeling internally. Are you bothered? Upset? Angry? Worried? Sometimes if we aren’t conscious and aware of our emotional state it can trigger our need for comfort.. to just feel better.
If yes, put the ice cream back and go have a talk with yourself instead. Maybe keep your journal in the freezer where you used to keep the ice cream. Do what I call a Mind Dump and just allow your mind to say anything and everything that it is thinking..just listen and write. I’ve got a whole course written to help you release and comfort yourself emotionally without using food.
It’s called the Learn to Tidy and Relax Your Mind. You can check out the first 3 days free with no expectations or obligations to do more.
