MAKE A FIST TO SQUASH CRAVINGS
Here’s an easy way to resist eating that doughnut: Make a fist. Tightening your muscles while considering your food choices makes you more likely to pick a healthier option, a study in the Journal of Consumer Research reveals. The theory is that because we often tense up when exerting willpower, the physical action alone will subconsciously activate our mental toughness. Other scientifically proven ways to beat cravings include playing a video game for three minutes, or going for a brisk 15-minute walk.
