7 Ways To Combat Cravings Mindfully
Cravings are clues for what your body, mind and soul are seeking. Maybe you need excitement, affection, regular and genuine connection with others and spiritual fulfillment, but those can be difficult to find if you live a fast-paced life. But food shouldn't be a stressor; it should be love, joy, a basic need, nourishment and conviviality.
To conquer unhealthy food cravings, you just need to tune into your feelings and life situations and ask yourself if food is really the answer. With that in mind, here are seven practical tips that can help you gently curb your food cravings and discover what you may need instead.
Sip on some herbal tea.
Eat complete meals at breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Eat mindfully without any distractions!
