Busy Hands Stay Out of Chip Bowls.
One of the things that has helped me to maintain my weight loss is keeping my hands busy – I knit, cross-stitch, make cards, etc. If I am knitting a hat for someone, I don’t want chip grease on it, so I don’t snack while watching TV. Maybe you’re not a crafter, but you could do a Christmas puzzle, write Christmas cards for shut ins or neighbours, play a board game or a musical instrument, hold hands with your sweetheart or if you can find a baby to cuddle, you’ve got it made! You simply need something to keep the mind and hands engaged to help break that nighttime snacky habit.
Prayer: Jesus, Your creation amazes us. Because we are made in Your image, we are each creative in our own way. Help us to be a blessing to others through our creativity this season. Jesus, we ask again for your help. We want strong healthy bodies to bless others and shine Your Light in this season where so many feel it’s a dark and lonely time. Show us how to be a blessing and ways to curb nighttime snacking in creative ways.
