Weight loss hypnosis session philosophy-this weight loss hypnosis mp3 and journal assignment addresses boredom eating and raises the question...are you hungry or
bored? We all sometimes experience life as being monotonous,
boring and repetitious. We experience the same old activities, thoughts
feelings day after day. Is it any wonder that people use food to add a
excitement to their lives?
However, over-eating or mindless snacking when bored
can become a habit. It is a habit that adds a little spice to a boring day and
seems to be harmless. Certainly we might convince ourselves that there are many other much more inappropriate ways
to bring a little excitement into life.
Boredom eating is without a doubt a concern for many
people.When we are bored we are not being
engaged or stimulated. Being bored may suggest that our day to day way of being
is not meeting our deepest needs for expression, creation or purpose.
When we feel engaged, involved, excited and fully
absorbed in our lives we do not need to use food as a tool to alleviate
boredom. The choice to use food to manage boredom may be viewed as a loving
self care behavior until the choice begins to negatively impact health and self-esteem. Boredom
can be a wonderful wake up call that we are missing something. Boredom may be
habitual and it may be an internal nudge or yearning for more meaning; that we
need to move out of our comfort zone and find ways to create more joy.
Boredom may be our potential knocking at the door
saying there is more life to experience. We can begin to recognize patterns of boredom eating and
create new strategies to manage this state.
