Self-control quick tip: fridge flags and pantry prayers!

If you struggle with eating when you're bored, eating too much in general, nibbling, snacking, munching, and the like - here is a quick tip to help gain self control while activating God's promised help!

Jot down a quick prayer on a sticky note sized piece of paper and tape it close to the fridge handle, pantry shelf or a cupboard door (especially if that cupboard contains the snacks!)

Prayer can be written something like:

 "Dear Lord, please help me tell the difference between hungry or bored. Thanks!"
"Lord, help me shut my mouth and move my legs today!"
"Thank you God for this body - let's take care of it together."
or even
"Too many tasty treats taint this temple!"

These simple prayers stick the heart when you know that you are eating out of boredom, or having a munch mania lunch-a-thon. Ask God for the extra power you need to say no to the ho-ho, and say yes to the best of this life!

Keep watching for more self-control tips!
