As a parent, children growing up is oh so bittersweet.  I am just now starting to adjust to the idea that I’m the mother of kids that aren’t babies or toddlers anymore. While my kiddos are not yet flying the nest, many of you have expressed anxiety and sadness about the upcoming transition for your parenting to kiddos leaving the house. In this episode I’m joined by journalist Celia Dodd, author of “The Empty Nest: Your Changing Family, Your New Direction” and “All Grown Up: Nurturing Relationships With Adult Children”.

 

We cover this issue from so many angles from how this impacts you, your spouse, your adult child, a sibling still at home, how this is different for a single vs. a married or partnered parent and more. Celia approaches this subject with compassion and we discuss how to handle the myriad of emotions from sadness to fear of the unknown to anxiety that your child may be farther away than they’ve ever been from you and the excitement for getting in touch with other aspects of yourself beyond being a mother.

 

I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did, although I’ll admit this interview made me anxious about my future for sure! Pointing towards work I need to do within myself to ease this transition for myself and my family - and illustrating that it’s not too early to listen to this episode! Even if you feel this phase of motherhood is a long way off.

I’m joined for this episode by Galina Denzel, author of the amazing, interactive book “Peace with Self, Peace with Food: A Trauma Healing Approach for Emotional Eating”. We dive into how past events can leave us vying for distraction, safety and even control when we experience everyday stresses from the big to the small. Many of us soothe that stress with emotional eating, never fully understanding that it’s not a lack of willpower or acknowledging that nothing is wrong with us, we are unhealed in some way and self-medicating or self-soothing it with food, wine, etc. 

 

In this show we talk about how your brain gets a bit rewired from trauma and how certain aspects of eating, like crunching (who knew??) can be so stress relieving making it no wonder so many of us turn to food to feel better when we’re under stress, in pain or otherwise hurt or out of sorts.

“Tis the season to be busy and surrounded by foods that may not work so well for you. Should you go all in cuz it’s only once a year? Swap out the sugar in your pumpkin pie for stevia and coconut sugar? Indulge and then beat yourself up for not having more willpower? Or simply say, whatever, I’ll try again January 1?

As you may imagine, I’m gonna say “it depends!” It really does. It depends on how easy it is for you to sidestep things that don’t work for you, your history with dietary restriction, how much they wreck you and why you want them in the first place. 

 

In this episode I walk you through the questions you can ask yourself to get #curiousovercritical about your draw to and cravings for certain foods, how to know if moderation or avoidance is best for you and how to enjoy them when the #joyfactor is high and skip the ones where it is low.
