In this podcast episode we explore the connection between loneliness and overeating. All of us experience loneliness at some time in our life. And for those of us who also struggle with overeating the relationship between loneliness and emotional eating can be complex.
Listen in to this episode to both explore what to do when you want to stop turning to food to comfort yourself when you feel lonely, and what you can do to avoid isolating yourself because of how you feel about yourself and your eating.
One of the reasons for talking about loneliness on the podcast this week is that next week, 13th to 17th June Loneliness Awareness week in the UK.
UK Loneliness Awareness week was launched by the Marmalade Trust whose aim is to reduce the stigma of loneliness and encourage people to talk more openly about it.
