Dec. 3: Remember to eat

When I was younger, I couldn’t imagine how someone could forget to eat, but here we are, me living my best life in middle age, wondering why I’m growling. When I get really into my work, the outside world fades into the distance while my overstuffed to do list nags at me and my deadlines loom. Too often, I find myself feeling hollow and anxious, my energy levels lower than the last bar on my phone battery.

The fact is sometimes what you are feeling is not anxiety but hunger. I figured out a while ago that I didn’t need to have a full meal during the day so long as I grazed my way regularly with a variety of easy foods I could grab and eat. I also avoided the sudden dips in blood sugar caused by long gaps between eating. Have some cheese and crackers, a piece of fruit, a yogurt, some nuts or a carrot with hummus. Put your snack on a nice plate or eat it with your favourite spoon or fork. It all makes a difference to how you feel.
