I'm seeing a connection between feeling tired and mindless eating - when my body is telling me it needs a rest, the impulse is to grab something to snack on, usually sugary. I can't help but feel like resting is using my time irresponsibly; but really, which is worse, taking a time-out, or feeding my body trash?
Today, when that slump set in, I caught myself in time and put on the brakes. In fact, I went as far as taking a short nap. I woke up feeling refreshed, with no remorse over snacking on junk. It feels good to listen to my body and care for it, rather than trying to keep it distracted with poor nutrition.
Yay me :)
