When we are confined to our home working all day long, we need to take some rest in order to relieve stress. However, considering the current crisis we don’t have the option to go out for a walk or visit a nearby restaurant. So we usually end up going to the kitchen and searching for the easiest snack that you can have immediately to give your body that short dopamine rush.
And sometimes this becomes a daily habit and you end up gaining a lot of weight.
While it is understandable why it can be hard at times in order to get control over eating junk food, here are some ways by which you can reduce or help eliminate the intake of too much junk food while working from home.
Plan your meal and snack times properly:
Just like you plan your daily work, you can also similarly plan your entire day on what you are going to eat. It will help you stay disciplined and keep your food intake under check.
Drink plenty of water:
Drinking a lot of water helps keep you satiated and your stomach fuller, as a result, you feel less hungry throughout the day.
Don’t buy or have junk foods in your home:
Having junk food stocked inside your home can lead to eating them just because you can and are available right next to you. Try not to buy and keep junk foods inside your home.
Don’t work anywhere near the kitchen:
The closer you are working to the kitchen the more tendency you will have to wander over and check the fridge if you have anything to eat.
Portion out snacks and meals before eating:
Never eat out of the bag or the container, it’s harder to control your portions. Check the service size of the container if you need guidance.
Focus on having a balanced diet:
Focus on healthy foods that keep you fuller throughout the day and help you in being productive.
