Sensory Stories # 36: Boredom or comfort eater?

Posted: 7 June, 2022

By: Annemarie Lombard


Food is required for our body and brain to function… and it tastes good! However, if we are what we eat, then surely we want to eat and be healthy.

In this video, Annemarie talks about the role our sensory needs play in how and when we eat. She considers two extremes – boredom eaters and comfort eaters – both of whom are using food for self-regulation, which is not ideal. Your sensory thresholds, whether a sensory seeker who eats when bored or a sensory avoider who eats for comfort, these behaviours can be explained.

Watch her vlog to learn more about your sensory thresholds and identify your needs in order to make better choices.
