|Manage your stress to lose weight.|
- Eat slowly. It takes about 20 minutes for your brain to catch up to your stomach when you are eating. If you’re plowing through a meal at warp-speed, you will charge full-steam-ahead into that miserably stuffed, gotta-open-the-button-on-your-pants feeling. Eat slowly so you can recognize when you’re full but not uncomfortable.
- Meditate. A daily meditation practice helps people feel more confident, less self-critical, and less stressed. One study found that a regular meditation practice causes physical changes in the areas of your brain that are associated with stress and anxiety, confirming the study participants reported decrease in these negative emotions.
- Exercise. Not only does exercise burn calories, but it is also a proven way to manage stress.
