30 days to reaching your potential day sixteen: eat breakfast

I don’t know about you, but for years I have skipped breakfast. At the time of writing this I have had breakfast for the last five days in a row and I feel fantastic! Even though what I've been eating for breakfast is not the healthiest food in the world, eating in the morning is definitely making a difference towards the way I feel when approaching a new day.


Many of you are probably not eating breakfast at this point in time (hey, it's okay... I'm not perfect either). If you are, then congratulations! Keep up the good work! But if you do not, it’s time to start changing the pattern.

Today is the day to start eating breakfast. The body goes without food for the entire time you are asleep, which is usually the longest period the body goes without food in a normal day. Failing to eat breakfast in the morning increases this time which is not good for the body. Breakfast helps prevent the body from going any longer than it needs to without food.

You don’t have to start with anything majorly healthy. Just begin by eating some toast, cereal or something else you feel like. Try and begin to establish a routine that will see you eating breakfast (even if it is small) every day.

Actions:
  1. Eat breakfast today.
  2. If you don't normally eat breakfast, try to increase your regularity until eventually you are eating breakfast every day.
