Can You Work Without It?.

No, not a camera or a paintbrush…can you paint or work without eating breakfast?

I can work on the computer till about nine or ten in the morning without eating, then I start to feel like I’m going to die, but I can’t paint on an empty stomach, or I can, but it’s painful…there have been many proven reasons to eat breakfast, and most are very important ones like lowering cholesterol and triglycerides…
I’ve jotted down a few below, which I have adapted (with a little humour), to make them more applicable to us

It restores your sugar level that was consumed while sleeping….chocolate is simply not good enough..
It supplies you more energy and nutrients that you’ll need for the day….you’ll need it to finish that huge commission…
Regularly having breakfast can increase your metabolism by as much as 10 percent….2lb loss per week…no?
It increases your concentration and makes you focused on whatever you will do for the day….moderating your groups takes energy…
It boosts your efficiency making you accomplish more things….your bmails to recalcitrant members will be more succinct…
It makes you less ill-tempered especially when that shot or brush stroke won’t come right…
It helps you avoid or decrease stress….when auntie asks once again when you’re going to get a real job, you won’t want to strangle her..
It helps you build healthy and timely eating habits….that chocolate at 2.a.m won’t be necessary any more..
It makes you feel less sleepy during the early parts of the day, especially when you need to post that WIP to a Sojie challenge or go check new work from your watchlist…
It increases your brain function…..spell check will get obsolete…
It helps you overcome fatigue…you will no longer fall asleep with your head in the paint palette…
It is the only time that you will feel like a king, except when you make a sale of course….
Eating breakfast is comforting….you need comfort…your last entry was turned down by the jury..
It exercises the muscles in your jaw….talking to yourself is not enough..
It makes you physically train more effectively….maybe next week you’ll start that run…
It is simply the most important meal of the day
.

Do you eat breakfast?
What do you like to eat?
Do find you work better if you eat
?

By the way the photo above is of my breakfast this morning…oatmeal made with vanilla, topped with cinnamon, maple syrup, 1% lactose free milk, and blueberries…a bowl of raspberries, with greek yogurt and a sprinkling of granola…tomorrow it’s an egg day, which will include toast, tea, and a slice of papaya…..taken in my kitchen with light streaming through the window…..
