When we lack consistency, we feel out of control. When we feel out of control, we take desperate measure to control things.
Okay, so why am I saying this? What is my point here?
Because whether you are feeling fear surrounding the crazy political anger right now, or whether you are feeling doubt about your ability to lose the weight or stop turning to sugar at times of stress, if you don't have a PLAN in place to create a life that feels safe and secure and consistent, you will feel out of control and you will take desperate measures to stop that feeling.
Alright, Alegra, fine. But what is the answer?
Well, luckily, the answer is simple! (Which does not mean it's easy.)
The answer lies in creating a PLAN to take ACTION that creates the environment you need to feel consistent, safe, and secure.
If it is the political climate you fear, find a way to voice your opinion that feels meaningful. Whether that is calling your representative, writing postcards to the white house, creating a discussion/support group with friends, signing petitions, or otherwise finding a way to champion what you believe in, you will break the spell of fear and anxiety through ACTION.
If it is your relationship with sugar, if you binge on sugar in times of stress, anxiety, fear, or loneliness, you also need to create a PLAN in order to take ACTION to get to a better place.
Finding a support person, like one on one coaching with me - or someone else you know of, creating a support relationship with your spouse, or getting your best friend on board with you, will create a consistent environment to change the patterns that are sabotaging you.
If you know you need support to create a plan and begin taking action to end the sugar binging, let's talk.
I help busy, ambitious leaders to step off the emotional eating roller coaster, so they can lose weight and keep it off, still eat all the foods they love, and finally find the work life balance they crave.
