Have you ever wondered if you are an emotional eater or if you use food to soothe yourself? Join us for this support group where we will examine emotional eating. You will learn how to comfort yourself by using your sense of hearing, seeing, smelling and touching instead of using your sense of taste. We will do a guided imagery exercise incorporating deep breathing techniques to help you learn a new way to deal with emotions. We will also talk about aromatherapy and what scents can help with stress, anxiety, depression, or fatigue. And the best part about this support group is that you will learn new skills that you can use life-long to help you manage your weight.
After this support group, patients will be able to:
- Identify if you are an emotional eater or if you use food to comfort yourself.
- Understand how to use new ways to comfort without food.
- Identify other senses and alternative behaviors to eliminate emotional eating behaviors.
