No doubt, we live in stressful times, full of expectations…societal …and self-imposed. So many of us buy into the pressure…
How often I hear people say they feel they have to be “perfect”; to impress, to act in a certain ways, and most certainly, to look a particular way….thinner! Living with all of those expectations is exhausting! Goes without saying that all of those “shoulds” contribute to emotional eating, stress eating…even to binge eating.
What are we losing in all of our years of judgment, emotional pain and struggle; waiting to change, waiting to “lose weight” so we can be “happy”?
When I saw this video, it really resonated with me. How about you?
