For many of us, life is uncomfortable.
Especially right now.
Not only do we have busy, hectic lives, heartache in our relationships, fears in our own blossoming, wounds from our past—but also, the world feels really fucked up right now. Weird shit is happening, people are dying, starving, fighting... We're surrounded by all this concrete, buzzing, anger, mania, and confusion.
It's not an easy time to be alive, to say the least.
It's tempting to want to numb out right now. For many of us, that means eat. Eating helps to soften the blow, soothe our nervous system, and it tells some part deep inside of us that we're safe, we're okay.
Even if we're not always aware of it, eating helps us cope with the current discomfort of everyday life.
