Connecting The Dots Between Food & Emotions

Updated: May 22, 2022

"One cannot think well, love well or sleep well if one has not dined well." - Virginia Wolf.

I once heard a Navy Seal say that he makes a point to drink as much water as he can whether he is on a mission or not because he never knew what tomorrow would bring and because what we consume today impacts our performance tomorrow.

What we put in our bodies impacts how we think, feel, and act. Long term it impacts our overall health. I recently discovered the Well Journal by Mia Rigden. Rigden is a Los Angeles-based nutritionist and founder of RASA, a holistic wellness practice. She created the Well Journal to help people connect the dots between what they eat and how they are feeling.

It is a simple guide with a daily exercise of writing down how you feel, how you slept, what you ate, what you did for exercise, and what you are grateful for. Oh, and there are no judgments allowed. That's a part of the deal.

The food-feeling connection is strong. Often times we reach for food when we are feeling stressed or depressed. We also feel terrible when we eat poorly. Writing down what we eat and how we feel each day helps us to be more mindful that these elements are intertwined impacting our overall well-being. This isn't just a food journal, it is like a little pocket therapist empowering you to feel good about the choices you make.
