It’s understandable that in the current environment, many of us are experiencing heightened feelings of stress, uncertainty, and anxiety. This might be the result of financial pressures, fear for our own health or the health of loved ones, and uncertainties around the future.
Alongside this, we’re also coping with different challenges that come with working from home and reducing our social interaction, such as increased snacking and emotional eating.
Second Nature recently performed a survey, which included over 1800 participants, to gather further insights into how our lifestyle habits have changed since the coronavirus outbreak. Interestingly, the survey found that over 50% of us are eating more snacks than usual. On top of this, almost 50% of us reported eating when bored and 25% felt out of control with our eating habits.
