Relaxed eating responds to changes in your routine, changes in your mood, and changes in your physical demands with compassion and ease.
Some days, you’ll expend more energy than usual. On these days, allow yourself to eat more food.
Some days, you’ll feel like snacking on a bar of chocolate. Let yourself.
Some days, you’ll feel like ordering a salad to go with your burger. Other days you’ll feel like having a side of fries. Allow yourself to eat what you want.
Show yourself compassion, and don’t beat yourself up for making these “wrong” choices.
Doing so is an extension of self-care and body acceptance.
Doing so helps you create a relaxed relationship with food, which will allow you to eat more intuitively, gain a better understanding of what your body needs, and develop a deep sense of self-trust that will inevitably benefit you in all areas of your life.
