When we live on the surface of our life we often turn to overing behavior such as indulging in eating, drinking, or shopping because we don’t realize we are hungry for something much deeper.
Whether that is more intimacy, more fulfillment, or simply to feel excited, we evade our deep hunger by distracting ourselves with small hits of dopamine that never have a lasting effect.
Learn how addressing our deepest hunger can lead to a more fulfilling life, without needing to fill our physical bodies with extra food or drinks that would never have satisfied our craving.
