4 steps to avoiding the afternoon candy crush

When that three o’clock feeling hits do you find yourself looking for the office candy dish?

It can be hard to avoid, especially when the candy dish has been fully restocked after a holiday.

Your coworkers may re-purpose all of the goodies left after the holiday, and it may be hard pass up. The Wall Street Journal cites research that shows just how irresistible the office candy dish can be.

Here are some tips on how to steer clear of the candy:

  • Step away from the dish: If you know a candy dish is at a coworker’s desk, invite them to your cube for that afternoon meeting.
  • Pack a snack: Keep healthy alternatives at your desk to help you fight those afternoon cravings.
  • Get moving: Fight your sweet tooth by taking a walk outside or around the building.
  • Stay hydrated: Water is an appetite suppressant so drinking plenty of H20 will help you feel less hungry.
