What's eating you?

Sometimes, it's not what you're eating, it's what's eating you.  Are you an emotional eater?  Do you feel down, and then reach for the chocolate?  If so, you're in good company!

How should you deal with it, once you know you have a problem?  Below I've listed a few tips that I think will help you weather your emotional storms.

  • Fill up with fresh fruits and veggies, preferably organic.
  • Reach for dark chocolate (the darker the better/70% or more cacao) when you crave chocolate.
  • When you are feeling down, go outside, and grab a breath of fresh air
  • Make yourself a cup of tea/green tea/decaf will distract you, and calm you.
  • doesn't have to be at the gym!  Think Deskercise!
  • Get enough ZZZ's
  • Play with your dog, cat, or other furry pal
  • Get a hug (research has shown this to elevate mood).
Have a wonderful Friday the 13th!!
