60 Second Reset
So why is a nutrition coach doing guided relaxation audios?
One of the biggest problems people have with sticking to healthy food, is what you do when you get stressed..... you comfort eat.
Next time, try taking a quick 60 second reset, or the longer 3 min timeout.
Close your eyes, listen and let go.
Feel free to share this with anyone you think might need it.

Why a Nutrition Coach Is Offering Guided Meditation: The Connection Between Stress and Comfort Eating
Hello everyone! You might be wondering, "Why is a nutrition coach like me diving into the realm of guided meditation and relaxation audios?" Well, it's because I've seen firsthand how stress can throw even the most disciplined eaters off track. The usual response to stress for many of us? Comfort eating.
The Problem with Comfort Eating
You've probably been there—work deadlines piling up, personal issues spiraling, and what do you do? You reach for that bag of chips or that tub of ice cream. It's a quick fix, a brief escape, but we all know that this kind of emotional eating isn't doing us any favors in the long run. Not only does it lead to weight gain, but it also fails to address the root cause of our stress.
The Power of Meditation in Stress Management
That's where guided meditation comes in. By taking just a moment to step back, close your eyes, and focus on your breath, you can gain a new perspective on your stressors. This process not only calms your mind but also equips you with the mental clarity to tackle your problems, rather than resorting to comfort eating.
How to Start: The 60-Second Reset
The next time you feel the stress levels rising and your hand creeping towards that snack drawer, stop. Take a 60-second reset. Close your eyes, focus on your breath, and listen to a guided relaxation audio if you have one. Even just a minute can be enough to break the cycle of emotional eating.
A Deeper Dive: The 3-Minute Timeout
If you've got a little more time, consider taking a 3-minute timeout. This longer session can provide a more thorough mental reboot, giving you even greater control over your reactions to stress.
Share the Calm
Feel free to share these guided relaxation audios with anyone you think might benefit from them. After all, we could all use a little more peace in our lives, couldn't we?
So, yes, while it may seem a little out of the ordinary for a nutrition coach to be offering guided meditation sessions, the connection between stress management and effective diet control is too significant to ignore. Instead of reaching for comfort food the next time you're stressed, reach for peace of mind instead.
Feel the difference, make better choices, and live a healthier, happier life.
