This really helps break the link between getting home and immediately turning to food.
Some of the things our clients do to help them transition are: immediately going upstairs, changing out of their work clothes, and lying on their beds for 5 minutes listening to a podcast; doing some deep breathing or mindfulness meditation in their cars before going inside; sitting on the couch and reading their Advantages List and Response Cards; listening to soothing music for a few minutes; getting home and immediately taking their dog out for a short walk; keeping a magazine handy just for transition times and reading it when they get home; and so on.
Excellent recommendations. I struggle with overeating at this time of day, and found this to be inspirational. My problem is eating after dinner and before bed.
I just crave the feeling of fullness and want to eat. Any suggestions, as I often eat quite a bit before going to bed. Interestingly most of us do struggle after dinner,…frustrations of the days are coming up, need for a treat, way to give me time…Best to avoid this is to close the kitchen , fridge and all food storage areas once the dinner table is closed. Eat it slowly, without watching TV or computer or hand phone, mindfully, seated at the dinner table.

Many people struggle with cooking when they come home after a long day of work. Preparing the ingredients, reading the recipe, cooking dinner, and cleaning up can take a lot of time. But, when you do as much preparation as you can before work, it becomes a lot easier to cook each night.
The benefits of cooking at home
Here are some food prep tips to save you time and money. Try using a crockpot or slow cooker while you are at work. When you come home, dinner is ready and waiting for you. If you are planning to grill out, put the meat in the refrigerator to marinate before you go to work. If you are planning a casserole, you can put the ingredients together and pop in the fridge the night before. If you are planning meals that have similar ingredients, you may prep an additional meal or two while you are making one. For example, if you are having sloppy joes, beef enchiladas, and lasagna in one week, you can brown the beef and prep the enchiladas and lasagna at the same time you finish up the sloppy joes.
This saves time in the long run.

You can also chop up a batch of onions for the week or grate all of the cheese you need for the week. This can also help you stay motivated so you are not tempted to stop at a restaurant on the way home. It can be healthier to use fresh vegetables rather than frozen, but choosing to use convenience foods can save you money.
You may start cooking using a wide variety of convenience foods and wean off of them as you get used to cooking and planning.

Some typical convenience foods are grated cheese, frozen chopped onions, frozen vegetables for stirfry, and pre-cooked meat for recipes. If you are cooking for just yourself, these options may be easier than preparing an individual meal each night. Another option is to cook ahead and divide the meals into smaller portions and freeze them to use throughout the month. By doing this, you create your own healthier option of convenience food. Another trick to help you stay on track with your budget is to buy ready-to-eat foods for the nights when you are too tired to cook.
These meals should be easy to put together and should cook quickly.
