Change the Channel on Food Guilt (Outweigh)

OUTWEIGH: How many times have you felt guilty before or after you ate something? Saying things to yourself like: "I shouldn't have..." or "Should I compensate after eating this...” That inner voice that beats us up before we eat and makes us feel guilty afterward is our worst enemy. Amy shares some ways to calm yourself down when food guilt pops up and stresses you out: 

- Something easy that you can do anytime, 4 rounds of the 4, 7, 8 deep breathing technique 

- Put on your favorite song….and sing along!!!!

- Take a cold shower!!!

- Practice the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 grounding technique! Acknowledge 5 things you see in your surroundings; 4 things you can tough, 3 things you can hear, 2 things you can smell and finally 1 thing you can taste. 

- Find a quiet place to try this calming yoga pose, the legs up the wall pose! Lie down on the floor and let your straight legs rest against the wall. Your butt should be up against the wall so that your body is at a 90 degree angle. If you're able, stay in this position for a full 20 minutes to really let your body reset.
