I had this discussion just a few hours ago with a friend!
She was filling me in on some nannies she was interviewing for her son. She told me that one nanny was pretty aggressive and she had a hard time dealing with her. Once the nanny left the interview she immediately ran to the kitchen to eat some chocolate. She asked me “what the heck was that all about?!”
Can you relate to this?
I can. I told her I used to do the same thing! Anytime I had a conversation with a particular person I would go rummaging for a sweet treat once it was over.
Luckily, now I have some easy and delicious alternates that shut down the stress snack attack and soothe us when we are overstimulated or stressed out.
I filled her in on these great treats she can turn too (she has lots more nannies to interview) and why they help us chill out and fill our stress cravings.
She seemed pretty excited about them, so I thought you might be too.
CHECK out my 2 favorite go to’s that put the kabash on stress cravings and why they work.
How to survive a full on stress snack attack!
First off. Don’t go for something you can chew.
To get the reigns on this habit and end it for good, get used to not going for solid food.
Change those old stories and choose a warm soothing beverage. Not only MUST you slow down, cause it’s hot. You also will tell your body it doesn’t need to chew something when an angerbull comes into your life and rocks your world.
Check out these awesome go to’s to keep calm and carry on!
