 Day 17

What’s for lunch? Curried Red Lentil Soup with Lemon

Smart Bite: Book some you time.
In his book Thrive: The Vegan Based Training Program, professional triathlete Brendan Brazier reminds us that it’s important to take time to improve yourself so that you can better help everyone around you. He reminds us of how, in an emergency situation on an aircraft, we are instructed to put on our own oxygen masks before helping those around us. How does this philosophy apply to your lunch break? Your lunch time is your time; if you spend it recharging, you’ll be better equipped to go back to work and give more of yourself to your job and your co-workers. “You can give more once you’ve taken care of your own needs,” says Brazier.
