Why do we crave sugar and food so much more during the holidays? And how do busyness, stress, and overwhelm contribute to holiday sugar bingeing?
When life gets busy, we tend to focus on getting stuff done and forget to “be.” Life loses a sense of meaning. The holidays feel stressful, not joyful. We feel overwhelmed and done.
When we’re feeling this way, it’s easy to use sugar (and things) as a “quick hit,” as a way to fill in the gap. It’s a simple, inexpensive way to grasp after meaning and joy.
Except sugar rarely delivers. What we’re really wanting isn’t sugar, but something much deeper.
In this video, I’ll share how you can fill your own heart during the holiday season – instead of filling up and finding meaning with sugar.
