If you, like millions of other people, find yourself staying at home all of a sudden, it can be difficult to stay productive and not fall into some new, bad habits. Sitting at home often goes together with eating more, and if you want to avoid this, here are our best tips.
Don’t Skip Meals
You may think that you will eat less if you skip breakfast or lunch, you’ll probably compensate for everything in the evening plus a lot more. Starving yourself will only lead to food cravings and you’ll crave unhealthy food and snacks most of the time.
Snacks are not bad, but you need to choose them carefully. Avoid industrial snacks and candy and go for nuts, fruits, yogurt, peanut butter, etc. There’s actually a big selection of healthy snacks you can enjoy every day!
Exercising will help you fight stress that’s often the cause of overeating. If you’re already into exercise, make sure to keep the habit during the quarantine. If you haven’t been very active recently, now is a great time to start an online program and slowly get better on your own terms.
