(6:13) One of the first and most important things that we can do is to just work at developing awareness around emotional eating. Don't try to stop it right away, just develop an awareness.
(10:45) One effective way to develop your awareness is by keeping a food and drink journal and include your emotions in your journal. So, for a week, just write down everything that you eat and drink, along with the emotions you're experiencing when you consume them. This journal is going to provide you really valuable insights into what your patterns are. You might notice certain trends or associations that you were unaware of before; maybe that time right after work, or that time after dinner, or the mornings.
(15:20) You want to honor yourself for two reasons: The first reason is because you actually took the time to figure out what your true feelings and thoughts are, and you didn't shut yourself down. And the second reason is because you're a human being with valid thoughts and valid feelings that deserve to be known and expressed.
