Health Tip: Avoid Emotional Eating

Meditation and regular exercise are excellent alternatives
(HealthDay News) -- When feeling frazzled, many people turn to food for comfort. Stress eating, also called emotional eating, can occur because stress triggers certain food cravings.
The Harvard Medical School mentions these alternatives to emotional eating:
Meditate, which may help you ease stress and improve impulse control. Engage in regular exercise, especially in forms such as yoga or Tai chi. Seek support from friends and loved ones when stress takes over. Get rid of high-fat, high-sugar foods so you're not tempted when under stress.
