After a long and tumultuous day, the image above is likely all too familiar to many of us - an absolute zonk-fest! If you're a corporate worker struggling in your weight-loss journey, it might be time to dive deeply into the mind. As it turns out, most of us have emotional eating patterns, negative beliefs, and learned habits that lead us astray from our fitness objectives. But when we address these issues with intentionality, we may find ourselves on the road to lasting results! While counting calories and ramping up workouts can be helpful, they’re often not enough.
The Science Behind Emotional Eating Patterns
Research has found that specific triggers cause us to reach for unhealthy foods - even if the food isn't tasty or high in quality. These triggers usually stem from emotions like stress, anger, sadness, boredom, or loneliness - all feelings that are common among corporate workers navigating long hours and high-stress levels. To make matters worse, these emotional eating patterns often become engrained in our brains over time; research shows that after as little as three weeks of engaging in them consistently, we can actually establish an “emotional eating habit” - which is much harder to break than simply indulging every once in a while!
Negative Beliefs & Learned Habits
It's no secret that the workplace can be an incredibly stressful environment - but this pressure doesn't just impact our emotions; it can also trigger underlying negative beliefs about ourselves and our potential for success. Whether we're conscious of them or not, these beliefs can impede our ability to stay healthy and reach our goals - particularly if they become deeply engrained over time. Similarly, learned habits (like sitting at a desk all day) can also contribute to poor health outcomes because they encourage sedentary lifestyle behaviors without us even realizing it.
The Mindful Approach to Wellness
Rather than trying the same old methods (which research has proven don’t work), why not try something different? Taking a mindful approach to wellness could provide access to some long-awaited results! This means looking beyond physical factors like calorie counting and exercise frequency and instead focusing on mindful eating practices, positive affirmations about body image, or self-talk exercises explicitly designed for busy workers with limited energy resources. You might find that when you start addressing your mental wellness needs, first, you will see far better physical results!
Sounds like a switch you're eager to flip? Then let go of all those old (and empirically ineffective) hangup strategies, and try something different today: get underneath the hood and see what mental adjustments can do!

It's little wonder that RTT is becoming one of the most sought-after therapies out there - it works quickly and effectively when it comes to helping people conquer their cravings and regain control over what was once considered an uncontrollable mindful habit.
