Recent research has shown that being in a good mood can make you up to 77% more likely to eat healthily.[i] An upbeat mindset means you’re more likely to be thinking about the future and therefore recognising the long-term benefits of consuming nutritious food. If you’re in a bad mood, you’re more likely to choose foods that have an immediate, indulgent reward.

To move away from negative thoughts why not try talking to friends, listening to music or giving Bach™ Emotional Eating Kit a go. The set is made up of three 10ml flower essences to give a helping hand with diet and healthy living regimes. You can create your own individual combination and adapt it to suit your changing moods. The essences are alcohol free and suitable for the whole family.

  • For self acceptance - Crab Apple – When you feel unclean or dislike something about yourself, don’t rely on food to make you feel good.
  • Be rational - Cherry Plum – When you fear you might lose control of your diet.
  • Gain Knowledge from experience - Chestnut Bud – When you find yourself repeating the same dieting mistakes, don’t fall into your old bad habits, for example reaching for food when things get tough.
