Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Jan 3, 2023

Learning how to eat more mindfully, and not emotionally overeat is a skill many of us need to learn. Suzanne talks to Jessica Procini, emotional eating expert, on how to use food as food, instead of a comfort substitute.


I don’t know about you, but I’m a WAY restless meditator. So this week I start the show by sharing a practical list of ways you can overcome that restlessness… and just settle down and chill out. Good idea for the start of a new year, right? Because we all need to get ourselves on the meditation cushion if we want serene minds.


To that end, I also interviewed an emotional eating expert, Jessica Procini. She’s got a fascinating take on emotional overeating and how we can heal from it—something she calls “digesting your emotions”.


Among other things, I learned

  • What emotional eating actually is
  • What to do when your emotions feel like a threat
  • How to recognize if you are an emotional eater
  • Why high powered, super successful women are prone to emotionally eat
  • Tools other than food that she recommends for managing intensity


  • Ideal lunch breaks!


Hope you find this chat an inspiring way to start the new year.


With love,
