5 Reasons Eating Breakfast Everyday IS Important

I understand more than anyone what it is like to have a busy morning. I am often (okay, always) running late, usually forget at least one thing when I step out the door, and often feel like I don't have a minute to breathe. However, no matter how busy that my morning gets, I never skip the opportunity to eat something to fuel the start of my day. I can't say I always eat the most nutritious breakfasts- often a granola bar, bagel, or some kind of fruit that I can eat as I run to my first class. But no matter what, I make sure that I am able to get the most important meal of the day in, and here's five reasons why you should too.

1. You need energy!!

Eating breakfast in the morning gives you the energy to get through the rest of the day. Without food when you wake up, you tend to be sluggish and unable to focus on simple tasks. A little fuel and you'll be able to get through twice as much as usual.

2. It helps you lose weight

Believe it or not, people who eat breakfast tend to be skinnier than the average population. Why? Because you're eating something that your body has the whole day to burn off, versus eating later in the day and storing more fat.

3. It gives you time to take a breather

Okay, so maybe this isn't true if you're always running, but hypothetically breakfast should give you a chance to sit down and prepare yourself for the day. Or at least take two seconds to sit while you butter your bagel before running out the door.

4. There are lots of nutritious options

Breakfast foods consist of a lot of healthy foods such as fruits, yogurt, granola, and eggs. You could make something fancy like an egg white omelet, or something simple like avocado toast or a banana. Either way, you can find something you enjoy without breaking your diet.

5. It's delicious!!!

Personally, breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. There's loads of fun and delicious options (especially if you aren't on a diet), so load up and enjoy!!

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.

Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
