Why do we crave sugar and food so much more during the holidays? And how do busyness, stress, and overwhelm contribute to holiday sugar bingeing?
When life gets busy, we tend to focus on getting stuff done and forget to “be.” Life loses a sense of meaning. The holidays feel stressful, not joyful. We feel overwhelmed and done.
When we’re feeling this way, it’s easy to use sugar (and things) as a “quick hit,” as a way to fill in the gap. It’s a simple, inexpensive way to grasp after meaning and joy.
Except sugar rarely delivers. What we’re really wanting isn’t sugar, but something much deeper.
In this video, I’ll share how you can fill your own heart during the holiday season – instead of filling up and finding meaning with sugar
Thanks for these thoughts. I felt myself relaxing and feeling calm as I watched. I will watch this video again when I'm frantically living "up there" and not from my heart. You've inspired me to treat my life and its events as sacred, precious things and to live out of what is deepest in me.
Thank you for sharing your experience with me! I feel happy that the video helped you feel relaxed and calm, and connected to your deepest values.
Yeah for you!
In love, Karly
