Exercise 6 Postpone or procrastinate?
- Category: Workbook
Situation - postponing: You are postponing beginning an activity. Is this routine procrastination? What are you postponing? Is it true that you can postpone everything except eating?
Exercise: Reverse the order. Before you reach for food, pick one activity you have been postponing and take concrete action. It may be a note or a phone call. It may be gathering materials you need. A small action mobilizes your personal power.
Now you are postponint your emotional eating and making headway in tasks that, once resolved, will ease your anxiety and need for emotional eating.
