Dealing vs. Replacing Indulgence with Indulgence

Hi Brooke,

Going through the model regarding overeating, if I reached a realization that food filled an activity to spend time and escape boredom, in trying to deal with that I am seeking other ways to fill this time. How do I know then, that I am not exchanging one indulgence for another?
For example, if instead of eating I get a manicure, massage, yoga class, watch Netflix, haven’t I not dealt with the core issue? And what does dealing mean? What does it look like to deal consciously with newly available four hours in the day without keeping the hedonist state?
