Waking up and eating a big breakfast is fantastic. Normally, I find myself skipping breakfast when I am on go, go, go mode. The decisions and work we have in front of us are so looming that it is easy to be overwhelmed by the details. I am a talker. When I have loads on my mind I enjoy working through it verbally before ever putting pen to paper.
Eating, taking my time and just discussing the big picture are such effective strategies to help me slow down. My breakfast this morning of a burrito, oatmeal and french toast was plenty to do its job.
