Research has shown that if you have a craving and wait two minutes, the craving will pass. If this is true, then stalling for a little time can help you pass up those cookies, ice cream, chocolate, donuts, chips, or whatever else is calling you.
If a craving is strong, two minutes can be a long wait. So, what can you do to pass the time of day and say no to those tempting foods. Here are some ideas…
- Take 12-15 deep breaths
- Take a short walk, even around your house or hallway at work
- Tap: “This craving for (fill in the blank with what you crave)”
- Do some short task to take your mind off of it, like making a phone call, folding laundry, or making a shopping list
- Read a book of inspirational quotes
How about making a list of your own ideas? I bet you’ll come up with lots more! And, please share them on this blog so others can also benefit.
