Any advice for someone who wants to stay active, yet has trouble avoiding that last bag of chips?
Cravings for foods that aren’t very healthy is quite normal, too. Being aware of when you crave these foods is helpful if you want to reduce, e.g., when you’re stressed, bored, or anxious. Perhaps you can add in a different option when you notice you have a craving, such as eating an apple, drinking a glass of water, or taking a small walk outside for fresh air.
Thank you for sharing this with us. I see where you are coming from. It sounds like staying active is something quite important for you and it has been a challenge for you to maintain it.
At times like these, when our schedules or lives suddenly change, it can be quite difficult to manage actually and to tap into our motivation.
In fact, feeling this way during these changes is quite normal and it matters to acknowledge our feelings and give ourselves the space to experience them.
As for exercise and activity, I walk my dog several times a day (on leash and I keep well away from others, sometimes crossing the street if someone else is approaching on the sidewalk), and I just grabbed Just Dance on sale for my console which at least gets us moving.
I would also suggest the classes on the Wellbeats app, if you are a member of the Wellness Centre. The classes are pretty good and there is a great variety!
