How to stop emotional eating at work
Emotional eating is so common in the workplace that we hardly ever notice it when it's happening. Energy crash? Drawn out boring meetings? Long hours? Comfort eating is the answer for many of us. While eating can distract us from our worries, it does come with its fair share of negative side effects. These include weight gain, yo-yo dieting, guilt, and shame. So how do you break your stress eating at work?
What You'll Need
- Plan ahead!
What You'll Do
- Move your body: step away from your desk during your lunch and go for a walk, even a short one.
- Don't skip meals: Skipping meals or not eating enough at lunch will lead to an energy crash. This will call for emergency snacking and quick fixes are rarely healthy choices.
- A little bit of planning, maybe grabbing your lunch on the way in to work if you know you have a busy day ahead.
