Taking Time for Lunch

After coming across this simple post about a beautiful lunch, I realized how rarely I make time to prepare, serve, and enjoy a thoughtful, delicious, healthy lunch. Do you take time to eat lunch? A nice plate of food in the middle of the day feels so luxurious with everything else I feel like I “should” be doing, but as I’m thinking about this I’m realizing lunchtime could be a time to nurture and prioritize oneself.

Are there little things you do in the middle of the day to nurture yourself? A piece of chocolate? A funny YouTube video at work? A quick call to a close friend?

I take time to read Designmom at lunch … and a few other blogs. It is a nice break from work and I’m usually inspired by something I read.

I try to take a quick catnap if the kids are both down. It makes me a less grumpy mom during the witching hours in the evening.

Lunch is my worst meal of the day. I think I need spruce it up a bit and treat it special ;) (Right now it’s terribly rushed and I usually stick to the same old boring sandwiches)

I have been thinking more and more recently about how nice a good, warm meal at lunch would be. Hoping to find the time over the holidays to slow down in the middle of the day!
