The Unexpected Place You're Probably Overeating

April 13, 2015 2 min read

There is a particular type of overeating many of us do and probably don't even think about. If you can be mindful of this, you can transform your life.

Many of us overeat while in transition. Transitions are a place of disruption between one pattern or flow and another. For example, a transition can be that time between being at work and arriving at home and stepping into your home role.

You are at a disadvantage if you do not learn to manage your transitions.

Many people eat mindlessly while in transition as a way to procrastinate, get an energy boost or reward yourself for forging ahead. When you are in transition, you are not quite in the flow, it feels a little uncomfortable which can also cue you to reach for something to eat.

Busy people are often terrible at managing transition. It is important to take time and check in with yourself, see what it is you need to do to shift to the next role but more often than not, we rush on to the next thing or overlap them so there is no gap at all.

Not taking time for these pauses in your day can be a complete and utter disaster. It is hard to know what to do to even begin changing these but we've got some suggestions for handling transitions.

Pay attention to the transitions points in your day and life. Once you've identified these points, create a small way of checking in, centering yourself. It really doesn't have to be much, a tiny ritual or habit that you can create.

Try doing things like:

-- Get up and stretch

-- Go fill your water glass

-- Take 10 deep breaths

-- Brew a cup of tea

By being mindful of your transitions, you will be able to tune in to the inner hungers you've been using food to feed.

If you find you don't have any transitions, odds are you've overbooked yourself and are overlapping activities in your life. Try, once again, to do something small like book yourself an extra 5 minutes in between activities. You may find having extra time a little uncomfortable at first and have to fight the urge to squeeze something else in there, but once you do get used to it, you will find you feel much better. You will be more in control of your life and of course, your eating.

What are your major transition times? Be honest, do you mindlessly eat at those times? How will you create your mindful check in?

Shipping & Delivery

Fast, Express Shipping.

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies such as ours are Essential Services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
