Being active

Did you know that being active can also be a powerful ally to help you quit smoking? Physical activity helps you sleep better, makes you feel better about yourself, improves digestion, and reduces stress—all things that will help you deal with withdrawal.

By adding physical activity to your lifestyle, you increase your chances of quitting smoking. The important thing is to go at your own pace and do at least 30 minutes of physical activity every day. So, get off your couch, turn off the TV and computer, and go fill your lungs and your brain with fresh air!

Eating better

Often, ex-smokers replace their smoking habit by munching to keep their hands - or their mouth - busy! The lack of nicotine may also lead to a heartier appetite and, in some cases, to food cravings. Also, when you stop smoking, your sense of taste and smell come back to life: food tastes and smells much better.

Try these tips to keep you from satisfying your tobacco cravings with food:

  • Adopt healthy habits like listening to your body and eating only when you’re hungry and drinking lots of water.
  • Choose foods that are high in fibre and protein. They will curb your appetite.
  • Come up with strategies that will reduce cravings.

Eating well means first and foremost having a varied and balanced diet. Choose foods that you enjoy and that are good for you!
