It is important to be able to take care of oneself,
but there is a big difference between standing up for yourself
and expressing negative emotions.
Confrontation often isn't necessary.
Simply examine your thoughts, and practice being present in the moment.
Quiet the anger or sadness with deep breathing.
Step back from the situation that is troubling you.
Realize that emotional eating will only add to your problems later on.
Write out your thoughts and feelings in explosive detail
… but this is for your personal expression…
don't share what you've written with others.
It is critical to learn positive ways to deal with pain, sadness,
depression, and even the spaces that mean comfort or joy.
We need to feel our emotions instead of suppress them.
Take each new day and work from the inside,
and focus on the good that is inside each of us.
Meditation and prayer can both be very useful
for calming oneself down, and finding one's center.
Use positive words about weight-loss and maintenance.
A positive vocabulary will help us make better food choices,
and in time, will help us achieve our goals.
Go for a walk or engage in another positive activity,
like listening to the Words of Wisdom Playlist
located in the RESOURCES section here at DietHobby.
Feelings come and go…both good and bad.
They will always be a part of us.
Purposely place your focus on Positive Thoughts,
and you will feel good a great deal more of the time.
