How often do you eat when what you really want is connection? How often is eating over a social event like lunch or time with the family? Most of the time when people are eating for connection purposes, they are mindlessly eating because what they really want is to be connected with other people. So start paying attention to how often you are using connection as an excuse to eat. You will notice that you really do want to spend more time connecting with people and it is really unnecessary to overeat. So spend more time on connection and less time on over-stuffing, you’ll start noticing more control.
