Toxic positivity, or stifling negative emotions for the sake of "good vibes only" often does more harm than good. Instead, we show you how to use negative emotions for what they are: signals pointing to your needs and wants.

In this episode, Registered Dietitian Nutritionists Dalina Soto and Melissa Landry interview Mimi Cole, therapist-in-training, to talk about how to express negative emotions productively, especially if you are an emotional eater during times of anxiety, stress, and, boredom.

We discuss:

  • what is "toxic positivity"? how does a the "good vibes only" attitude get in the way of us coping with emotions?
  • whats the difference between feeling anxious and an anxiety disorder? how does anxiety impact the way we eat?
  • as intuitive eaters we are trying to listen to our bodies to decide what, when, and how much to eat without external. what do you do when stress and anxiety impact appetite and cravings? can you really trust your body when you are an "emotional person"?
