Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. … Studies show that eating a healthy breakfast (as opposed to the kind containing doughnuts) can help give you: A more nutritionally complete diet, higher in nutrients, vitamins and minerals. It is the most important meal of the day. A healthy breakfast is very important for our health and weight management, but not having it at all is the worst option. Eating in the morning is just a matter of habit. Taking 10 minutes to make and eat some healthy food in the morning can be simple.

10 SIMPLE TIPS TO BECOME A GRATEFUL PERSON:
An important key, I believe, is being a grateful person. If you are grateful, you will see the world differently. You will see that there are always good things behind everything that happen. You will realize that your life is wonderful, and you will be joyful.
1. Realize how rich you are
2. Realize what a healthy and prosperous life you have
3. Realize what a blessing it is to live in peace
4. Open your eyes to see the good things in your life
5. Maintain a “good things” journal
6. Understand there are positive things behind the bad things that happen
7. Have a special session of gratitude
8. Meet positive people
9. Focus on giving
10. Decide to be a grateful person
if you truly reach each item, you are a successful person if you are honest with yourself. and if we are honest (truly/brutally), we can succeed and yes, MJ, be grateful for what we have right now.
even if it hurts
many people eat lunch at work, or in a lunch room, break room, car etc…
when you eat, make it something wonderful.
use a plate (not paper)
use a real fork/spoon (not plastic)
use a real glass
use a real napkin
Have the items with you and at lunch time, take it out and make it a grand occasion. Enjoy your lunch. Chew slowly. Taste the food. Some even put their fork down in between bites. Some take a small sip. There is nothing wrong with plastic spoons/paper plates, but make it special for you. Enjoy your hour or whatever time you are permitted.
