Health Tip of the Day

How to Fight the Urge to Shop Compulsively

  • Always shop with a list, and buy only what's on the list.

  • Shop alone. Shopping with a friend can make it easier to spend big.

  • If you decide to buy an expensive item, wait 24 hours.

  • If shopping provides a main source of enjoyment, cut back on the cost of the things you buy.

  • Put your credit cards in a locked box, and put that box in another box. Then put the boxes in the back of a closet. That way, you have to make at least three conscious decisions to get your hands on the credit cards.

Add color to your plate with fresh fruit and vegetables, choose whole grains and low-fat dairy, and keep an eye on your portion size. Aim for balance, variety, flexibility and moderation.
