When you are having a pity party for yourself, try to refocus on all the positive things in your life to re-attune your attitude. Look at your accomplishments, all you are grateful for (it could be just because you woke up today sometimes! lol). "A joyful spirit is evidence of a grateful heart"
Keep saying "I am grateful for______" filling in the blanks each time with something different until you can no longer think of anything.
Taking time to prepare a snack or meal helps to satisfy hunger. By putting in the effort to clean and chop fruit or to prepare a healthy entree, I find that my hunger is more satisfied than with a quick grab and eat snack or 90-sec microwave meal.
It's almost the ability to savor the food over a longer period of time provides more satisfaction.
