Mind-Body Connection: Emotional Health and Eating Habits

In times of stress, people may resort to food for comfort, stress reduction, or coping.

Stress Impact: Stress hormones may increase the body's urge for rapid energy, causing sweet or high-fat food cravings.

Mindless Eating: Emotional discomfort can cause people to eat without thinking, resulting to overeating.

Positive emotions encourage healthier eating choices, whereas negative emotions may encourage less healthy food choices.

Emotional well-being affects body image and self-esteem, which affects eating habits.

Social Connections: Community eating can improve emotional health and dietary choices.

Meditation and mindfulness can improve the mind-body connection, lowering emotional eating and impulsive eating.
