Eat Something Healthy
It can be tempting to wallow in the bottom of a pizza box or ice cream carton when you’re feeling down, stressed, or anxious, but Norwood says that eating something healthy will actually make you feel better. “Constantly eating foods high in sugar and salt will slow you down,” she says. Of course, you’re free to splurge on your favorite junk food whenever you want, but know that the more regularly you eat nutrient-dense food, the better you’ll feel. Even the process of preparing a healthful meal for yourself can be therapeutic because you’re putting time and care into something that really matters—your body.
