Question and answer
What are some psychosocial factors that contribute to eating behaviors? What are some ways to overcome these factors
Personalities. According to psychologists at the National Institute of Mental Health, most people with eating disorders share these personality characteristics: low self-esteem, perfectionism, feelings of helplessness, and anxiety. [ They have overly high expectations and have "all-or-nothing" thinking patterns. Can you see how these traits connect to overcontrol of eating? The problem is,
disordered eating patterns aren't triggered by these characteristics, but they may make it more difficult to recover. Emotional causes. Anger and other emotions that are not expressed easily can feed a disorder. In fact, therapists believe that eating disorders are more about trying to relieve uncomfortable feelings and solving life problems than they are about food. The person often is afraid to express these emotions verbally and directly, so he or she does it indirectly through disordered eating patterns. For some, a strong emotion will trigger an eating binge. Others may overeat to mask and numb-out difficult emotions. Non-eaters are able to feel something, even if it's physical pain, which may be easier to deal with than their actual emotions. ]

what can you do to minimize errors when using commas and apostrophes in your writing?
