"It's hard to stay focused when you have an attack of anger," says Dr. Sara Fischer, an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Georgia in the United States. Insults are counterproductive and cause irreversible damage. But you can take control by rehearsing your confrontations at home. Fischer recommends that you get excited while practicing your speech. "Your brain will use the script you rehearse even when you are under the control of a strong emotion." Relax after practicing, otherwise you will have a lack of control of your courage.

Now, "anger, anxiety and sadness can activate your desire to overeat," says Dr. Janet Polivy, a professor of psychology at the University of Toronto in Canada. Culinary delights make you feel good momentarily, but anxiety and guilt will return to take revenge. What you must do; If you are in bad mood, stay away from the food. "Change your mood by doing things you enjoy," advises Polivy. Eat at a certain time so that mood swings do not produce new hours of eating.
