Stress And Overeating Part 3

April 23, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 180

For the last two weeks, I have been bombarded with questions about stress and overeating, which is great because that means my clients are analyzing themselves and are finding the causes of their overeating addiction (stress).

Which is why I am going to write a series on "Stress and Overeating", incorporating their questions and erasing some of the myths we have in the marketplace today on overeating and stress.

Many people who are under stress do not look for the solution first. Instead they look for explanation and understanding, and that's the step we have to get rid of.

For example: You start out fine and a co-worker says something and it really get's under your skin. Next, you're in the break room or at another co-workers cubicle letting them know "so and so" is a jerk. Yes, you'll receive temporary relief, yet is the problem solved? Ask yourself, if you came in tomorrow would that same person that got under your skin today stress you out again? If the answer is yes, than you got to change how you respond to this form of stress (because you'll end up getting bent out of shape again, and lose more of your working time trying to explain it and understand what just happen).

"Today's lesson is about letting stress linger"....

I had a client who learned from taking successful notes in his journal that he would never have a binge attack on the day he went to the gym. He also discovered that when he waited to go to the gym after work versus before, he would make excuses not to go, hence he wouldn't. A lot of people I work with recognizes this part of their life, yet they continue to fall into the same trap. (The recognition does increase the amount of times you go to the gym, yet still their are times you don't).

So, my client had the solution, but still overate because their were days he would talk himself out of going to the gym in the morning and then when night came he would talk himself out of the gym again. He looked for understanding instead of the solution that was staring right at him (going to the gym in the morning). We have to embrace the solution, and not the excuse or what feels momentarily comfortable. (Every single time, until it becomes habit).

Now that we know, that by letting stress linger we in turn will never fix our problems. We must seek to find the solution as fast as we can. You must sacrifice something if you truly want change, yet don't think of sacrifice as just losing something. Think of it as losing something, in order to gain something in greater value.
