Pro Tips for Daily Comfort

Seeking comfort through alcohol, excess food, or other substances or behaviors can serve as a quick fix to avoid discomfort and tough situations but it only exacerbates anxiety. It might seem like a temporary reprieve but the issue becomes more overwhelming the longer it is ignored. Let’s explore strategies to intercept these cycles at the outset, promoting healthier habits and self-awareness.

  1. Recognize Your Triggers

When the urge to reach for your comfort item—be it a bag of cookies, a bottle of wine, or even an impulsive purchase—arises, take a pause. Reflect: "Will this action bring me closer to self-esteem or drive me farther away?" Thinking through your choices can prevent a cycle of shame and promote a series of better decisions, stacking up micro-accomplishments that build self-trust and confidence.

  1. Understand The Cause

Ask yourself, "What is making me uncomfortable?" Identifying the root of your discomfort, whether physical like chronic back pain, or emotional, such as financial anxieties, is crucial. Addressing these discomforts directly can alleviate the need to seek external comfort. Personalize your coping strategies—maybe it's a yoga session before driving, or confronting your bookkeeping tasks head-on.

  1. Address Your Deeper Needs

Finally, question what you are truly hungry for. This hunger may not just be physical; it could be emotional, a thirst for meaningful connections, or a neglected passion. Reflecting deeply can help you recognize these needs and address them appropriately, fostering a fulfilling connection with oneself and ultimately with others.

To summarize:

  • Identify your go-to behavior.
  • Reflect on its impact: Will it bring you closer to, or farther from, the person you want to be?
  • Investigate the underlying discomforts.
  • Discover what you are truly hungry for.
