Let’s talk about the coronavirus panic, the food and resource hoarding, the current realities of this global pandemic, AND let’s also talk about the silver lining, find a little thread of optimism, and figure out what’s reasonable panic and what’s unnecessary panic! And let’s also start viewing dense food as life sustaining OK!?!?!?!
This episode’s show notes:
I answer the following questions (and more):
I find myself food hoarding and stress eating with the coronavirus panic. Is this a bad sign? What can I do about it?
I bought and stocked up on lots of food but have not been eating it, is this an ED flare up?
Do I have spring allergies or the coronavirus???
Plus, I also talk about:
How diet culture is trying to co-opt our panic
Some simple ways to stress relieve and take care of yourself when everything feels scary
And other tiny silver linings of self-isolation.
Plus! At the end, I have a convo with my (weed-loving) friend about coronavirus and… weed & the munchies & disordered eating. (She also is a therapist and has an LMFT!)
