With the holiday season in full effect, you might find yourself in a pickle about whether you should eat that sugary treat or not.
Well, a study found that this mental dilemma caused so much elevated stress on its patients that it was actually worse than just taking advantage of a short period of time and eating a snack or two. This doesn’t mean it’s time to eat an entire plate of cookies by yourself, but don’t deny yourself to the point that you finish the day more stressed than you started. It’s interesting to know how powerful stress is in our lives. Sometimes, eating unhealthy is better than the burden that we will inflict upon ourselves if we are constantly in a state of denial.
