Stress Eating At Work

This Sparked Me!

Instead of keeping sweets and snacks around for stress eating at work, simply take fruits and veges to nibble on. If the sweets and fats aren't handy, you likely won't go looking for them if a bag of carrots is right there on your desk.

    When I get a package of sweets|cookies|Candies, etc. as a gift, I portion them out in zip lock bags and place them in the freezer.

For some reason, they are out-of-sight-out-of-mind until I make a conscious choice to grab one. Then when I really want a sweet snack, I grab one baggy from the freezer. They take longer to eat because they are frozen.

For some reason this works for me. emoticon
