Stop Cravings Fast

The older I get the more cravings I seem to have.  Chocolate and salt show up a tad too often in my daily life.  But it turns out clenching your fists might help you keep from grabbing that late night snack.  New research showed that when people tensed a muscle for 30-seconds they were more likely to control impulses.  Does it work?  I’m not sure, but it’s worth a try.  Maybe just trying will be such distraction, you’ll forget about your carving.

So next time you feel like binging, try clenching your fists instead.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
