|STOP stress eating!|
- Exercise. It’s one of the best ways to help you cope with stress. Plus, the endorphins released during exercise will boost your mood if you’re feeling blue.
- Read your labels. As one of the above studies notes, reading the nutrition information will help you keep your eye on the prize: a healthy you.
- Journal. Jotting your feelings, good or bad, down on paper helps you clear your mind and feel more at ease. Letting go of these emotions will help you make better decisions and will help you avoid the pitfalls of emotional eating.
- Spend time with friends & family, just don’t do it over a meal! Get together for a walk, go to the gym together, or go to a movie (but be sure to pass on the popcorn).
