I've found that a little bit of meditation helps me at the times of the day when I'm most likely to overeat or go off track, especially when I get home from a long day. Just get comfortable in a quiet place, close your eyes and take several deep breaths. Remind yourself of your goals and what you need to do to get there. Tell yourself that you can and will do this. After a few minutes you should feel more at peace and ready to take on the rest of your day :]
Whenever I have a really tough day, I make sure I do a p.m. yoga DVD. The gentle exercises and meditation help me focus my energy and be at peace. It makes sleeping a lot easier and I feel, in general, happier. A simple thing to do that is highly effective.
