In times of stress, our cortisol levels and our blood sugar levels are both impacted, which makes us want to grab for a sugary treat or a simple carbohydrate. Coach Sarah helps us "expand our menu" during times of stress.
What activities can you do to replace that emotional eating? Sarah introduces the concept of a nurture menu — options you can turn to to help you reduce stress and avoid food cravings. Some examples may be to take a warm bath, to go for a walk, or to drink your favorite tea. In our expanded content for members, we have an entire list to help you make your own nurture menu. Contact your local owner for more information.
