How to Handle Workplace Temptations

Do you have a coworker who's always tempting you with candy, or perhaps they bring in the most delicious baked goods?

It's hard to resist, we get it!

That's why on this week's podcast, Marchelle and I are tackling this oh-so-common problem. Tune in to find out how you can resist those sweet temptations at work and stay healthy!

Episode Highlights:

(09:24)  I want all of us to understand that when we're in situations of heightened stress and the treats are there, you can find yourself getting into it without even realizing it's happening. It's so unconscious. So just be aware of that.

(12:51) Never beat yourself up about anything. That's absolutely going to be very unhelpful. When I found myself automatically reaching for candy, I didn't beat myself up. I just brought awareness to it and I stopped myself, and I took some deep breaths instead, and I reminded myself that this is hard, that what I'm going through right now is hard, and it's okay.

(16:44) Going against the norms of a group is very frightening to our primitive brain, and that's why it can be so difficult to make our own needs known. We still deserve to be living in vibrant, healthy bodies, and we deserve to have our needs known and respected no matter what anyone else may think about it. So sometimes what's required is to really step out of our comfort zones and stand up for our own needs and desires.
