A Different Perspective
I always knew that I was prone to bored eating, but the last month or so I've been doing really good at distracting myself from it. I'm now working a shift at work where there are more people around which makes me less tempted to 'sneak' munchies and when I'm home I've got my computer. However, these past 3 days I've been on a different shift covering a coworkers vacation. I've been basically the only one here in the office and with it being New Years.. Holy Cow! I noticed my bored eating has increased. And it's not so much the quantity, but the quality of what I'm grabbing. I work at a hotel so the gift shop and all it's crap snacks are right there. How I did not balloon up to scary weight and sizes when I worked the night shift is beyond me!
My point being, a little change in the perspective can bring into sharp focus what you may have always known but never really seen too clearly.
