Chapter 3 - What's Going on? from Life Is Hard, Food is Easy - by Linda Spangle
The discussion of heart hunger and head hunger is very valuable, both types resonate with me. These issues are something I would benefit from paying more attention to.
Emotional eating of both the head hunger and heart hunger varieties DOES postpone what I need to do to address my situation.
The references to feeling invisible and wanting it to be my turn could have come straight from my mouth - in fact those words have.
"Like bandaging a skinned knee, food temporarily hides your wounds but doesn't make them disappear." Wow - what a powerful image.
I am pondering some ideas for 'insteads' - what to do in the moments of head and heart hunger. Head hunger insteads: walk, exercise, deep breaths while saying to myself 'I CAN do hard things', clean a shelf, chew gum. Heart hunger insteads - lotion on my hands, crochet, cardmaking, plan for a social activity (craft class, hiking club).
