Proteins. Daily exercising-- not just over-exercising, but making sure you're doing something you're enjoying. Like a walk through a park. Not just running on your treadmill all day.

To hell and back.

Constantly staying busy and distracted. I always try to have projects or things I'm working towards while restricting. I'm a bitch when I'm restricting but being around people sometimes takes my mind off it and makes me feel less depressed

Magnesium taken daily works as an antidepressant. It will take a few days to weeks to kick in, but when I actually do it consistently I feel better. Having said that I am going to take some now, cause I kinda forgot about this :P

I will take meds for headaches, tea, my faveourite diet soda, play games, draw or do anything else to distract. Though if you're super hungry I would say have pickles. You can get ones that are very low in calories and it will help to satisfy you if the liquids don't work, If you don't like pickles lettuce and tomatoes are an ok option.

Yep, pretty much constantly working on school assignments or a job will keep you busy. I get distracted easily or unmotivated, but continuously focusing on task(s) helps silence obsessive thoughts.

It's a strange way of saying that I know I'm supposed to love you.

Occupying yourself, leaving the house.
