SNACKING HABIT 


Life during the pandemic is stressful. When we're stressed, we crave comfort. Food does a really good job of providing that comfort, both emotionally and physically , so that why people are turning to their favorite foods


This can push us towards eating less healthy foods, whether it's comfort food, ultra-processed foods, or junk food.


While working at home, sitting near the fridge and pantry means you have easy access to food and might be mindlessly snacking while you work. Distracted eating, or not paying attention while eating, causes people to eat more


To reduce the chances you’ll snack too much :-


🠊 Create a designated workspace away from the kitchen.

🠊 Avoid taking snacks to your workplace.

🠊 Change your habit to a healthier choice such as vegetables or fruits.

🠊 Being more mindful about your snacks and meal times will help you avoid overindulging.

🠊 You can monitor your eating habits and calories to help you lose weight with a nutrients calculator or eating schedule.
