Our productivity crashes at around 4pm every day, sometimes earlier. It is a great idea to be prepared for this by taking a little healthy snack with you (if you are out and about) or have some prepared in a little glass jar in the fridge.
Having a healthy snack to hand will stop you getting so hungry that you either get angry or make the wrong choices.
One thing that can happen is that we reach for unhealthy snacks.
Another thing we can do when we allow ourselves to go hungry is fall into old habits. When we are hungry and smell food frying or someone making junk food like hot dogs. These things don’t effect us so much if we are already satiated. We can then make a more accurate decision that is in line with our health goals
