Simple as the name indicates, isolate your work area at as distant as possible from the kitchen. This distance will decrease your cravings from the kitchen and you won’t get the sensation of a bakery or a restaurant right beside you. Keep your vision away from the fridge and stop checking your fridge so many times a day, and have a pre-plan to hit the kitchen for a meal, or to have a snack. This brings us to the second tip.
2. Plan your meal-times
Yes, you should. Planning your meals would be the most obvious way to overcome unhealthy eating. Have a schedule prepared that says when to have a snack, when to have a lunch-meal and yeah, and those stress-relieving coffee breaks! This will really help you stay composed with your eating habits. Try to treat the home as an office space if work is your main focus and food keeps on tempting you.
Not only meal times but also keep a clear check on the to-do-list and analyze the time when you feel the most energetic for work and rest to take a break!
3. Prep your meals

Prep your meals ahead of your time every day, it does not have to be a fancy meal or a huge recipe necessarily, just prepare something that has significant nutrition in it! Something like grilled chicken and some veggies and perhaps omelet along with it? This is an example of a simple yet proper meal!
4. Drink lots of water
Sometimes you might feel dehydrated and maybe lightheaded as well while working from home! This is because of dehydration, you will have a water bottle always beside you when in the office right? Similarly, keep a water bottle near you all the time at home as well. Learn to drink lots of water, when we say a lot, it means in huge amounts and keeps in mind that an average human needs to consume at least 2-3 litres of water per day. Water is exceptional to intake but liquid sugars are a no-no, considering it is never really healthy for the human body to consume even though it’s refreshing.

When it’s a meal-time, it should be meal-time. When hunger hits you and it’s time for a meal, make sure to leave that work stress at your desk and bring back that joy of eating at your dining table! This is not only a healthy and happy eating habit but this will also help you in boosting your productivity!
