Do you eat out of boredom?

Food can become one of the greatest pleasures of life, especially when you choose those foods that you like or are considered "prohibited foods", the serious thing is when you start eating for boredom just to give you pleasure.

Eating is more than just feeding yourself physiologically. It must be borne in mind that feeding not only depends on how much hunger we have, but, in turn, on the previous relationship we have with food and the social circumstances in which they are consumed, according to alimentacion-sana.org

For its part, the boredom it is a void that causes a lack of meaning in the face of our relationships with the environment and with people, which we usually tend to fill with other substitutes that act as temporary palliatives. The most common of these is food.

Food appears to appease this threat of free time, of emptiness, of nothing to do; that is, from boredom . Thus, eat out of boredom is to give a sense to that free time, but it is dangerous when a vicious circle forms: boredom-anxiety and stress; Eat-guilt-anxiety and stress.
