Out Of Sight, Out Of Mind will work some of the time, but it may be that at other times you need a larger scale intervention.

When I’m avoiding a craving I often resort to distraction.

Some of my favorite techniques include

  • calling a friend
  • amusing myself on facebook
  • going for a quick walk/doing a brief burst of exercise
  • drinking water
  • drinking hot tea
  • if I’m truly hungry eating something healthy like Fruit
If you find that the distraction doesn’t work and an hour or hours later you still truly want some Halloween candy then ask yourself if today is the one of the days that you will happily enjoy some- guilt free.
