This video is my reaction to our Mindful Eating Event last Saturday.
There seemed to be two issues that stood out:
1. People felt powerless about sugar 2. People really liked self-compassion
Sugar addiction is a complex topic. In this breakdown I talk about the relationship between self-compassion and sugar addiction.
First of all, you have to have physical balance before you attempt to reduce sugar cravings. You need to be taking care of yourself and be in tune with hunger.
But taking physical care of yourself is not enough, you also need a compassionate mindset to learn from your sugar eating experiences.
Normally sugar is associated with judgment, and judgment is the killer of learning and progress.
So to make a complex phenomena simple - we need to embrace compassion and learn from sugar.
