Today I was talking to someone newly diagnosed with diabetes. She was down and discouraged. I told her She’s got to stay on top of the disease and not let it get the best of her. By the end of our conversation she had hope in her voice and felt #optimistic ! #livingwithdiabetes
We all need to know the difference between physical hunger and emotional hunger. There really is a big difference and if we learn the cues of how to not give in to the emotional hunger we can be healthier and happier. Emotional hunger is when we eat to not have to feel hurt feelings or deal with stress. When your craving sugar or bad carbohydrates you should start to evaluate your feelings and journal them so you don’t eat and numb those feelings. I have many journals and have found when I write my feelings on to paper I release stress and don’t need to turn to food to deal with my stress. Writing is therapeutic for me. If you don’t have a journal Ross or Target sell them for a reasonable price. Ross in my opinion has the best journals. Journal your feelings when you feel yourself craving unhealthy food. You will be surprised how this helps.
