One of the problems that I have developed during my recovery time is that I’m no longer careful about what I eat. My biggest problem arises from being bored and inactive so I end up turning to eating as an activity to fill that void. In order to combat this faulty thought process I came up with the following list of things I can do instead of eating. From this point on, any time I feel the need to eat for no reason I’m going to pick something of this list to do instead. Some of the things on this list will have to wait until I’m further along in my recovery but I feel like I have plenty of options.
