Although food is essential to life, too many of us also use food as a pacifier. This emotional or stress eating can have a negative impact on our physical, mental, and emotional well-being. Today’s guest, Adina Kelman, a certified health coach and registered yoga teacher, chats with us about how this behavior can affect both males and females. Join us as we discuss some of the origins of stress eating, and how one can break this maladaptive habit.
(Adina on the impact our beliefs have on our food choices.)
When things get tough, and we feel that we have no control over outcomes, or power within certain situations in our lives, there is a tendency to want to numb those feelings and emotions. Some turn to television and entertainment and others use alcohol or other substances in order to cope. However, according to research, many turn to food.
Though we normally associate eating disorders with females, Adina Kelman, our latest guest, who is a certified health coach and registered yoga teacher, stresses that it is a universal issue that affects both females and males.
Adina has worked with hundreds of people struggling with maintaining a healthy relationship with food. Through her years working with clients of all ages, Adina has seen the toll abusive eating habits has on people’s health. Adina uses meditation and yoga as a tool to help clients break this dysfunctional habit, rebuild their confidence, increase their self-worth, boost their self-love, and discover healthier ways to communicate their needs.
