Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Jul 20, 2021

I begin this episode with a blog I wrote a while back about one of the common pitfalls of meditation—trying to get it ‘right’. As usual, unneeded pressure is… unneeded. Isn’t life tough enough without trying to meditate perfectly? If you’re a meditation resistor, perhaps this will resonate.

I had a lively conversation with the wonderful Coach Kir, a binge eating expert. If you’re wondering what’s going on when you just have to scarf that entire bag of chips, take a listen. There are subtle—but conquerable—forces at play.

Among other things, I learned:

  • The clinical definition of binge eating and why it matters
  • Binge eating v. overeating
  • What the telltale signs of binge eating are
  • The emotional foundation of binging
  • How to turn these mindsets around
  • Best ways to get support to change your behaviors with binge eating
  • The danger of diets and restrictive eating for bingers
  • Good limitations that support an end to binge eating

May this podcast resonate! (And excuse me while I go grab some chocolate… AND observe my motivations and emotional needs as I do!)

Take care, friend.
