You may snack a lot of unhealthy, sugary foods. You may even go out to eat because you are bored. Most likely when you go out to eat you won’t be sticking to your weight loss diet. Some of the other things you can do instead of eating when you are bored include the following:

  • You can go and get a massage.
  • You can go for a walk or a run.
  • You can pick up the phone and call someone.
  • You can get active in any way.
  • You can read a children’s book (this may seem silly but it works).
  • You can plan a place that you would like to go.
  • You can write a thank you note to someone.
  • You can read a book you have never read before.
  • You can plan a meal that will be healthy for you.
  • You can look up healthy recipes.
  • You can go somewhere to volunteer.
