Make The Most Of Your Evenings
We have all been there: dinner has been had, you are sitting on the sofa, either scrolling through your phone or watching TV, and suddenly you feel the urge to snack on something that you aren't necessarily hungry for. It's a habit and one that Scottish Slimmers is here to help you break.
If you make some changes, you can form new, healthier habits. Try out some of these:
Going for an evening walk
Lighter nights and warmer evenings in Spring mean that you are unlimited as to what we can achieve after dinner. Head out for a walk around your local area, achieve your daily step count and cut your snacking cravings down in just one night.
You don't have to be a yogi to meditate. Simply find a quiet space, switch off all devices for 5 to 10 minutes and reflect on your day. Think about what you achieved today, what you hope to achieve tomorrow and what this will mean for you in the wider context of your life. It will help you take a breather and remove the stresses of the day!
Writing a journal
Different types of journals can help you with your weight loss, whether that's a food diary or a daily journal. A food diary will help you keep track of what you eat and perhaps plan your meals for the week ahead, whereas keeping a journal has been proven to create a more positive mind-set and improve the productivity of those who keep them.
Setting yourself up for a better sleep
Snacking at night is usually your body's way of telling you that you need energy and the best way to get that energy is through sleep. Over the years, studies have suggested that lack of sleep is linked to weight gain and low levels of productivity, so ensuring you get the rest and rejuvenation you require is crucial to staying healthy. Wind down with a warm drink and a good book each night and aim for 8 hours sleep.
