On this cold, dreary Autumn like day here in the #yyc, I felt like treating myself to some good old fashioned comfort foods. Now comfort foods mean different things to different people. Me, I was looking for something that would warm me up inside and let me relive some childhood memories. Sometimes, that’s all you need and that’s ok. But sometimes, we might use foods for other reasons that might not be so healthy (mentally speaking) for us, especially if we start using foods to try and solve our problems on a frequent basis.
There are other ways to comfort ourselves without using foods. Here are a few options:
- Take a bubble bath, maybe even with some essential oils
- Massage your feet and hands with scented lotion
- Curl up with a good book and comfy blanket
- Warm up next to a fire
- Book a massage
What are some ways besides using food that you get comfort from?
I work as a Dietitian and definitely walk the talk. I love to cook and help people get back to being healthy again.
