The week has arrived; the week all of us college students have anticipated all semester; FINALS WEEK! All of your procrastination has caught up to you. You become overwhelmed with stress and just want to sleep. Many people will turn to food when they are stressed; is this you? I read an awesome article that lists 5 ways to stop stress eating.
Should you really eat that piece of cake, or should you substitute it for an apple instead? Use the Eat this, Not that method. I use this method daily. This can help you not do major damage if you do decide to stress eat.
Instead of opening a bag of potato chip, bust of some pistachios! Pistachios are super tasty and good for you! You are still getting the crunchy, salty taste just in a much more healthier form! What’s better than that?!
When we see the color red what do we associate with it? When I see red, I think stop. Try eating on a red plate of putting a red piece of paper on your fridge. This will tell you that enough is enough of to not even go there.

Calm down and take it easy. You have made it this fair. Sit down and drink some hot tea. Take a moment to breath. Unplug yourself for the social world. It is important that you take a moment to just be at peace once in awhile.(:
