If you asked me five years ago if I eat breakfast, I would have replied with a resounding “No!“.
However, in recent years, I’ve changed some of my habits and one of them is going through the day without any breakfast. Maybe it’s because of the highly-cerebral nature of my job that I try my best to fuel up before starting the day and don’t get distracted by the obnoxious growling of my stomach in the middle of an executive meeting.
I tried my best, but there are still some days that it’s proven challenging to make something at least decent to have. Well, at least during the weekends I have what you call a “balanced diet”.
Of course, paired with my choice of beverage, either tea, milk or chocolate, it’s one heck of a day to start. I end up feeling that I can tackle the different challenges I’ll face throughout the day… at least the first half of the day.
It’s paying off great, if I may say so, considering that I don’t have hunger pangs by mid-morning or built myself to a very big appetite by lunchtime, making me binge or something.
Also, I stopped taking my daily dose of appetite-reducing supplement anymore, but still had the same habits as I have noticed.
All’s good with the healthy eating habits so far. Paired with meditation and some stretching exercises, I have indeed made a 180 degree turn for the better. Actually, I feel way better than 5 years ago. It only takes a little change in perspective, I guess.
