Let’s face it; the last copule of years have created so much stress as our world stopped for a while. Most people have not experienced anything like it – socially, emotionally, physically, or mentally. Many countries continue in periods of lockdown, some states in the US are open but others are more limited, and there are still questions around school and jobs and social events.
Add to it the fears, distractions, and interrupted routines, and it can wreak havoc on your life and on your health goals.
After being stuck for so long in the space where the refrigerator and pantry are just down the hall was challenging enough. Throw in a year of isolation from friends and co-workers, some extra stress from the uncertainty, shifting rules, and you have a perfect setting to drive emotional eating. As we start to go out as safely as we can, our clothes may fit.....differently.
If there were ever a time for support, accountability, growth, and shared encouragement, it is now.
