I'm not sure but its something I've been preoccupied with a bit of late.
Between balancing work, house selling, packing ... my brain has been at times... ridiculously overwhelmed. At times I've struggled to cope with the demands of my life. One of my 'coping mechanisms was to eat. Pretty much anything with sugar in it. In secret. It wasn't helping.
I also stopped exercising as my back had been playing up when I exercised and I was scared to do more damage. No need to point out the obvious issues so far.
So this is not going well. Brain is foggy from being over tired/lazy/sugar-dependent. Body is sore, blocked and sluggish [honesty time ok?] and overall I feel... not so crash hot actually.
After a day of eating mainly chocolate, I caught myself in the car on the way to Bible study with chocolate in my pocket, waiting for Awesome to look out the other window so I could sneak bites. And something snapped. What am I doing? I can't live my life like this. I'm paying a small fortune for gluten-free products and stuffing my body with crap on the other hand.
Time for change. Simple life habits.
Back on the lunch from home bandwagon
Pilates twice a week
Cooking at home. Making things from scratch.
Sleeping with the window open (helps you sleep better and not get as sick. apparently.)
Talk to people. Process thoughts and feelings.
Seek out inspiration: read and search things that help me to process thoughts.
I feel better. I still eat some chocolate. But its not as much. And I'm trying not to be secretive about it.
I have a Pinterest board for nourishing habits. Helpful.
