Make Yourself Get up and Eat

Screen Shot 2015-06-23 at 2.15.02 PMMake Yourself Get up and Eat? What kind of diet advice is that??? Well, it’s a little trick I stumbled upon to keep me from sitting at my computer too long, and to keep my snacking in check at the same time.

Have you ever gone to sit down to do a difficult project at your desk armed with a plate of snacks to ease the stress? – I know I have!

Just the other day I had a delicious bowl of organic green grapes at the ready. But in an effort to stop eating at my computer I decided to leave them on the kitchen table and make myself get up from my computer and walk to the kitchen every time I wanted some.

I limited myself to 2 or 3 grapes at a trip, so I ended up walking back and forth to the kitchen about 7 times during that hour of work. Even though it is a very short walk in my little apartment it kept me feeling somewhat active and energized.

Sitting for lengthy periods at your desk is hard on your body, especially after doing it for years. Frequent breaks are healthy for your brain as well as your skeletal system.

I hope this helps!
