With regard to binge eating, dozens of triggers of this eating behavior have been identified.
One of which is very common (we'll see it in a moment).
As you may know there is a widespread problem that leads to behaving with food as if it were a kind of drug with which to stun and have immediate psychophysical satisfaction ...
... and then having to deal quickly with the guilt feelings, followed by new good intentions the day after the binge.
This behavior is often referred to with the term binge (binge).
The term binge, however, originates from the great drinking of alcohol before it is bitten by food.
So the hangovers are actually the main example of binge. In fact, besides the etymology, drunkenness is very similar to food binges both for characteristics and for purpose (stunning and / or immediate sensory satisfaction).
There is therefore a great similarity between many forms of stunning by means of substances that cause release of pleasure neurotransmitters in the brain.
A further similarity between the various ways of doing bingeing concerns the triggers that facilitate the beginning of the binge.
Today we face one in particular ... BOREDOM.
THE BORN: ONE OF THE MAIN GRIPS OF BINGE EATING
"... I didn't say joy, but boredom boredom, damn boredom!"
Even the Caliph, in his memorable song lamented the same problem: boredom.
And he, in fact, notoriously procured diversions that weren't exactly healthy, consisting of a massive use of substances of abuse.
So, there is another way to deal with the boredom that is not the collapse of food, alcohol o psychotropic substances various?
Yes there is!
The road to being free from EVERYTHING in life is built with the materials of theself-disciplineand awareness and serietà.
I don't seriously mean being serious, but take serious your personal change.
... and when thanks to your seriousness you have made your choice and you have persevered in the best option (more healthy and profitable) then you can also enjoy moments of lightness and finally full serenity ...
... because you have done all the "home tasks" that automatically guarantee you behaviors that are functional to your greater well-being.
And life will reward you with serenity and good energy, a prescind from external conditions.
Yes, you will finally become like a mountain:
The best stable and unperturbed version of yourself.

BRILLIANT AND BRILLIANT: HOW TO EXPLOIT THE MOMENTS OF BORING TO DEFEAT THE BINGE EATING
Regarding boredom, there is a book I read last year very nice.
It's called "Bored and Brilliant".
It tells the story of Manoush Zomorodi, a successful writer and researcher.
Manoush has always been accustomed to keeping exceptionally pressing work and production rhythms, then at the arrival of her first pregnancy her habits have been completely overturned.
Her pregnancy was a bit problematic and forced her to an inactivity she had never been used to.
This discomfort led her to an unexpected discovery ...
The boredom and inactivity when they are left to act without suppressing them with some distraction produce an increase in creativity and in general of thepsychic energy.
The same psychic energy that also contains the definition of will power.
If you can't change because you feel like you lack the energy to do it, it probably happens because you have low levels of psychic energy at this point in your life.
So what is the solution to recharge your psychic batteries necessary for change (and also to enjoy life)?
The same boredom that for almost everyone represents an enemy to be defeated, in reality it is a source of creativity and energy, if you let it work.
HOW TO DEAL WITH BORING AND DEFEAT THE BINGE EATING
So how should you cope with moments of boredom?
... here comes the seriousness I was talking about ...
Take your boredom seriously and live it to the full.
Go through, DON'T dodge.
Go through it completely and without apology.
It also means facing life as it comes.
Accept what comes, do not squirm, remains in the present moment.
Watchlist. DO NOT judge, DO NOT criticize anything.
Look carefully and let go ...
Simple but difficult, of course. But it is there (indeed it is HERE and NOW) that the boundless and stimulating reality of your life is manifested.
You will realize that there is nothing wrong with boredom!
The problems in fact derive from trying to avoid boredom when it is the carrier of space therefore of renewal and creativity.
Make the most of it.
