8. Make Time for a Stress-Buster
Use the time you were spending on social media to actively relax.
Adults with obesity who participated in an 8-week stress-management program lost significantly more weight than those who didn’t take steps to tame the tension, per a October 2018 study published in the Journal of Molecular Biochemistry. “Stress releases hormones that not only make it hard to lose weight, but that make us crave unhealthy foods that bring us comfort,” Pflugradt explains. “Stress management is extremely important for weight loss.”
The key is finding a stress-buster that you enjoy. Yoga and meditation can be great options if you like them enough to stick with them. But spending time in nature, taking a bath, listening to music or even watching a funny movie can all get the job done too.
