Actively listening - to yourself and how you communicate with yourself - can actually prevent you from being stuck in a vicious cycle of unhealthy emotional eating. Learning to listen to, and change negative self-talk into healthy, compassionate self-talk will also help you maintain a healthy weight. Active listening is also critical in the health of relationships with other people. Having solid, trusting relationships with others is essential! You want and need positive support throughout your weight loss journey and active listeners have healthier relationships. Listen in and learn more!
