Avoid Eating Junk Food…
You know that there are no benefits to indulging in junk foods, they’re only bad for you… that’s why they’re referred to as “junk”.
So why not avoid junk food binge?
Although you do feel a quick rush of energy and craving satisfaction come from nibbling on sweets and chips, and drinking energy drinks, sodas, or coffee, they merely offer a short-lived stimulation boost of alertness and energy. You will find that as you consume these “junk foods” you will crave them more and more, which will only increase the frequency of your body crashing, and feeling restless and tired.

Not to mention that avoiding these (and other) junk foods will help keep those excess pounds off — And get you back into those stashed away jeans!
Here’s another quick tip to help you answer the crucial question, “Do I Want To Improve My Relationship With Myself?”
Endeavor to Uncover the True Motivations Behind Your Thoughts and Actions
Are you accustomed to doing things because you “have to” or to going along with others to satisfy the masses, even to the detriment of being deceitful with yourself concerning what you believe you really need to do? If so, you may find it hard to separate from your own particular motives for acting and those that are essentially forced on you by others.
To recapture your ability to get authentic with yourself, pinpoint your actual plan for completing an action – say, joining a dance class or going to a company party. Is your driving force a direct view of what others anticipate you will have, or does your plan seem to be valid to whom you truly are?
It’s crucial that you make every attempt to ensure that you recognize the truthfulness behind your thoughts and behavior and move forward towards adjusting your actions in accordance with YOUR values and principles. This truthfulness is the only thing standing between you and your capacity to free yourself from the ties of duplicity encouraged by the need of satisfying others at the cost of sacrificing your own values and principles. It’s this weakness that prevents you from achieving your goals, be they financial, losing weight… or even finding the perfect partner.
