How You Can Reduce Your Cravings? Play Tetris.
We all struggle with different cravings. Whether it is different foods, cigarettes, alcohol, or that dreaded piece of cheesecake at the end of your meal, they always tend to pop up when you don't want them.
A new study released by Plymouth University finds that playing the popular game Tetris for three minutes helps reduce your cravings by about 25%. The test was administered by having people rank their cravings at the current time. They were then put in front of a computer where a certain number were given access to play Tetris for three minutes, while the other group wouldn't get the game to load.
Needless to say, the people who played didn't crave anything as much as the people who didn't.
So next time you're craving that middle of the day snack that you know you "shouldn't have" just pull Tetris out on your phone for three minutes. See if it helps.
