Today on the bus ride home I started feeling horrible. My head was pounding and my stomach didn't feel so great either. I normally do homework on the bus, but reading just made it worse. By the time I got home, I just wanted to curl up in a ball and sleep it off, but of course I have homework so I couldn't do that. So instead I did some yoga, hoping it would help.
All the sudden it dawned on me. I hadn't eaten for 5 hours. Perhaps that had something to do with the misery I was in. Food sounded less than appetizing at the moment, but I slowly ate an orange anyway. I started to feel a little better. So I ate a piece of toast. And then another. And then a bowl of some casserole my mom made the night before. And then some brussel sprouts (yes, I like those things). And then some crackers. And drank two glasses of water. And guess what? I felt better!
Moral of the story. Take time to eat and relax. I forget to do that sometimes. I'm pretty sure I gave myself a migraine from stressing over school and lack of food. I had food in my backpack and I should have just eaten it, but I was too busy doing other things. Bad idea. Probably my lack of sleep hasn't helped either. So here are some goals for me as finals approach: eat, breathe, sleep.
Wish me luck on accomplishing those and doing well on finals ; )
