I think we all can relate to Mary Poppins’ phrase: “a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down.”
One way that you may be overeating sugar is to “sugar coat” the difficult moments, times when life feels a bit too much to bear. There’s a bittersweet nature to certain times of our lives. Sugary foods are one way to soften that experience.
In this video you’ll learn:
- Why rather than facing those things that feel too much to bear, we seek to ‘sweeten’ the experience.
- Why we do not need to judge ourselves for this pattern, only recognize it.
- What can we “grow” inside of ourselves to help us temper the bittersweet, so we don’t have to sweeten it with sugar
