Research, Jamieson-Petonic states, “has shown that a 15-minute walk can really reduce cravings and change the circuit to how we eat.” Plus, new research shows that lapping the block can specifically defeat the office candy jar: Researchers from the University of Exeter found that a 15-minute walk causes people to eat half as much chocolate as those who didn’t move. On top of that, taking a walk will make you more alert and burn off a few calories.
