My ten minute food challenge
When I crave food when I am not hungry I will do this:
Take a couple deep breaths
Ask Why I want this food, or what is stressing me out?
Do a five minute exercise- Hy-Vee Kid fit video, or stretches, yoga poses (youtube)
If I am hungry after exercising then eat a fruit, or a cheese stick with a glass of water
Then decide if I want that food, and enjoy it without feeling guilty.
Other good activities to get your mind off of food are:
Calling a friend and talk
Coloring, blowing bubbles, playing with modeling clay aka playdoh or model magic, (all kid activities)
Diffuse essential oils, grapefruit, elevation, or any other favorite ones.
Wish me luck!
