7 TIPS on HOW TO COPE WITH S.A.D - SEASONAL AFFECTIVE DISORDER without food!
Do you suffer from the Winter Blues?
S.A.D: Seasonal Affective Disorder
A lot of people suffer from the winter blues when the days get shorter, colder and darker and there’s less sunlight outside! Some people also suffer from S.A.D which is Seasonal Affective Disorder which is when you start feeling down.
It can affect your mood, your energy levels, make everything more dreadful around this time of year, and for our group it’s important because a lot of us are emotional eaters so we often turn to food as a coping mechanism.
Why is it important?
The reason why being aware of the winter blues and S.A.D is because once we are aware we can understand that there is no particular reason we are sad, and we can take the steps necessary to cope with this feeling. Knowing and understanding is the first step to healing.
The reason I wanted to address the winter blues in this group is because a LOT of us are emotional eaters. When we get sad, happy, bored, stressed, you name it - we often turn to food.
This being said it’s important to have other tools as a coping mechanism this year in order to deal with winter blues, S.A.D and overall emotional eating so we don’t get in the habit of self-sabotaging and backtracking on our weight loss goals.
Tip: Remember, the key tip to remember is that weight loss always starts with a change in MINDSET! It’s all mental!
