Stress eating most often happens not because you are hungry but because we are looking for a mental break that also makes us feel good in the moment. Eating accomplishes this.
When you find yourself snacking, try some of these strategies to help slow your roll, and possibly avoid the chip and dip therapy for your anxiety:
👉 Set a schedule for your meals
👉 Get outside (at a safe social distance)
👉 Take a minute to pause and take stock of your emotions
👉 Be gentle with yourself
This is a difficult time, and you will have good days and you will have not so good days. 🤗 Try not to beat yourself up over having chocolate after a long day of tutoring your kid in 4th-grade math while also working from home.
