in it now: the season of giving and the season of shame.
Thanksgiving only lasts for one day, and it can be an intense one!
But everything from Black Friday to New Year's can feel like an
endless parade of demands and performances, of holiday parties and
forced social interactions we'd rather not have. What do you do
when you find yourself stress-eating to cope with a situation you
wish you could get out of? In this episode, we talk about the guilt
that lurks behind the tidings of comfort and joy.
Whatever coping mechanisms you lean on during this
season, let's examine them and honor them for what they are. Let's
look at the situations that create a need for them and ask
ourselves what WE need to get. And most importantly, let's remind
ourselves that when we "enjoy" something while simultaneously
promising to "fix" or "undo" it all with a New Year's resolution in
the future, we're not actually allowing ourselves to enjoy
how do we approach these thought patterns and interrupt them?
