I’m craving sweets this afternoon what do I do?
I check in with my emotions.
I find out I’m super tired.
I stop for just 5 minutes to pause.
To rest my eyes.
Because I’m busy working and that’s all the time I have.
But this pause is important.
And when it’s over I allow myself to eat if I choose to.
I don’t punish myself or restrict myself.
I have full permission to eat that sweet food, and I’m well aware of my emotional state.
This is what food freedom is all about.
This is how to make peace with food.
This is one way to begin to adapt an intuitive eating lifestyle.
