Over the past few days I have been trying to confront things. I am fairly sure that body binges were always the more minor issue for me. The mind binge is definitely something I have been and still am clinging on to. It is a HABIT.
My biggest downfall is perhaps that I tend to avoid things right up until the last moment or until breaking point. Whether it be university work, relationships, organising things, emotions...I am an avoider! This ties in with binge eating in a HUGE way.
I have noticed that the need to binge comes as a reaction to avoid things in my life. This can even be the case in the morning, when I am trying to avoid getting myself up and out to face a day of work. This could also be to do with me being half asleep in the morning and my mind not being quite its rational self. Either way, I am going to try to stop avoiding difficult situations and confront them.
By confronting everything head on, I will be living a busy lifestyle which is a bit daunting...but this is all about keeping busy and living an interesting, full life. I know that this is ultimately what I want so aim to strive for it!
Regarding morning time, I think for now it could be a good idea for me to shower, get dressed and feel good before eating breakfast. Perhaps I should even wake up a little bit earlier to eat a calmer breakfast with my housemate.
Does anyone have any suggestions for avoiding morning binges?
Apart from this, realisations like the one above do make me feel POWERFUL!
