Hello all! Forgive me as I write this on my phone. My better half is telecommuting and has my computer at the moment.
Before I share the article, I wanted to give a quick update on some scheduling changes during this covid-19 crisis. I’ve decided to cut back to blogging to just one day per week, for the foreseeable future, until things get back to normal. This is a significant cut back from my current schedule of 4 days per week.
Each Monday, I’ll post 2 articles, one from this blog and one from my recipe blog, The Purple Almond Wellness Kitchen. Since my better half and youngest son are both home everyday, I find myself in a unique opportunity to spend quality time with my family, thus the reason for the cut back. Once things are back to normal, I’m hoping to go full time on both blogs.
Onto the main article:
Many of you find yourselves in a unique situation of working from home. This poses many different challenges, one of which is access to more food than normal. Trust me, as someone who works from home all the time, I understand this challenge all too well….the penchant to snack, mindlessly, all day. How do you stop this? The following article from Fox News gives a few tips on how to resist snacking and eat healthy when working from home.
Here are a few tips from the article:
- plan ahead- make snacks ahead of time and place them in clear containers
- make unique snacks – like fruit skewers with pineapple cubes, orange slices, strawberries, etc
- Use low-fat, plain yogurt or cottage cheese for dips or breakfast.
- change work locations if you’re prone to stress eating
- take a 15 minute break- get some fresh air, chat with friends or play a game on your computer/phone
- got cravings? Figure out possible reasons and look for solutions
If you fall off track don’t worry. It’s not the end of the world. Just hop back on the healthy eating bandwagon. At the end of the day, it’s overall healthy eating that matters, not one little bad snack.
Until next time, Namaste 🙏 my friends.
