Not only will this keep your weight under control, it will also positively affect your stress and energy levels. You don’t have to exercise and eat healthy in a way that makes it unbearable. Take a few minutes each day and do a few simple exercises to keep you busy instead of constantly reaching out to the fridge. Also make sure you drink enough water.

Let your blood flow as you turn up the music and try out new dance moves. Buy yourself a new scarf or coat. Take a hot bubble bath at night and relax. Watch that movie you wanted to watch.
