While sitting in front of a computer executing an urgent task, food calls may meet you there and you will be left with the dilemma of pausing the task, disengaging, or not eating at all.
But then, it is possible to multitask — eat and complete the task at the same time. Of course, this strategy will lower your task productivity but you are only eating for a short period. Collected.Reviews has strategies that work — optimizing your tasks and still not leaving your meals out. Reading reviews of food online stores, we guess a lot of people quite agree with the strategies.
Here we have compiled for you 4 effective strategies for eating when using your computer without losing your health or your task or even — well, yourself.
1. What you eat matters:
There are several kinds of food and we are not even talking about different classes of food. Some foods are messy and some are not. Some are quick and take little to no time at all to get them done, while some take forever to complete. You need to be familiar with what you are eating. This is your first strategy — knowing what to eat and how it matters in front of your computer. Of course, you won’t want to take anything hot while working or anything that fills you up and makes your body balloon. For breakfast, you can have light meals and lunch can come in the form of snacks and burgers. Whatever you decide, just be conscious of what you put in your mouth and be careful you don’t overdo eating, stuffing your mouth with more than it can handle.
2. Don’t just sit there and eat:
Be free with your meals. Don’t just sit and stare at your computers for long hours without at least taking your eyes off the screen into your meals. You should look at what you are eating and the process that goes into it now and then. You should also be able to move around, from this place to that place, and not just sit there with unmoving eyes. Your movement doesn’t have to be whole-body. Your eye signals, hand gestures, and mouth movement also count as part of the needed movement.
3. Invite a friend or colleague:
Only invite them if you have them around; if not, there is nothing wrong with eating alone. The need to invite them is to make you feel and know moments even while in front of your computer. Every food is a moment and should be treated as such. You can binge-eat, binge-work, and binge-talk. However, one tends to outweigh the other and we believe eventually you would want to stick to conversations, then meals, and then work in that order.
4. All electronics off:
Also while you eat, you should be cautious of the dangers of cables and need to keep away from them. If your computer has cable, you should unplug them before you start eating. Every wiring system should be a danger zone to you. Keep away from them as much as you can.
You shouldn’t eat while using your computers, but we know you do it anyway. If you must, then you need to pay close attention to the strategies listed above for security and ease.
