Sometimes we cannot control the environment we are at making it hard for us to resists or stay away from an unhealthy eating habit. But we should keep in mind that despite the distractions and temptations, we can always do something to achieve and maintain a healthy body. This simple attitude towards eating could help. You do not necessarily need to stuff all the contents of your plate in your stomach especially when you are already full. Eat to live and avoid living to eat. You could wrap left-over food and do a creative menu out of it for later.
2. Cook whenever you can.
Nothing is healthier than home cooked meals. Your ingredients are surely fresh and clean and you know what exactly goes in your menu. It saves you money as well. Finding time alone with yourself while you cook also allows you to detach yourself from the things that worries or stresses you out. Consider cooking your break time from the outside world. Connecting to you once in a while is healthy not only for the body but also for the mind and soul.
