Your personalized stress profile (PSP) reveals that you have a craver stress personality. When stress is intense, it's hard to fight cravings or addictive behaviors.
Identify key times of day you’re likely to crave and try to control the environment
Seek to satisfy negative feelings with connections with others rather than substances
Physically distance yourself from whatever you’re craving to help focus
Cravings can arise when tired, take a power nap and try to get more sleep
Recognize when you are craving and actively distract yourself.
Remember, don’t beat yourself up if you give in. Use it as a learning experience and take action to improve in the future.
