I am assuming that many of you are headed to the airport to see family. Binge eating and binge drinking at the airport is extremely common. Long airport layovers are recipes for compulsive behavior because:

  • Traveling is stressful and binge eating is a stress relief
  • You are bored and it’s a way to fight boredom
  • Although you are traveling among several thousands of people, if you are traveling alone, you are in a city where nobody knows you and this can feel very isolated and anonymous and secretive.
  • There is a bounty of fast foods and “forbidden foods” in relatively small radius.
  • You can secretly slip away from your travel companion and have a quick and secret binge.

Long, multi-hour layovers are rough, but there are many other things that you can do besides binge eat before a long flight. Click to Continue Reading…

Inspirational Quote

Caring for myself is not self-indulgence, it is self-preservation, and that is an act of political warfare. Audre Lorde

Love this quote and it’s so appropriate for those who are going home to see their families. So often we get right back into a dysfunctional pattern with our families and forget who we become. When you are with your family for the holidays, make sure to implement lots of self-care. Not to be selfish but to preserve yourself and to make your holiday more pleasant.

Most recent quote from community member: "Unbelievable progress. I had a slice of cake, wasn't that fussed about it and moved on. Cake is just cake! I never thought I'd get to this place. I keep thinking back to an earlier meditation when all the negative energy left down through my feet. That was really powerful. I'm planning to play it again. I've also drawn up a weekly meal plan of healthy balanced meals. This just helps to give me a bit of guidance and planning and eliminates any need for impulsive decisions when I often feel stressed after work. Amazing, thank you so much. I always hoped for hope, but n ow I feel like I'm living hope! I'm so grateful Leora. Thank you."
