But if whatever you're watching (the news e.g.) only takes as long as your breakfast it should be acceptable.
something I indulge in when too tired to do anything else – not something I would personally want as part of my morning routine, which should be energizing and make you feel good. Why not take 10 min and read a few pages instead?
I often schedule my leisure time and I'm finding I get more of it now that it's on a calendar. The most important thing to take away is that whatever you choose to do, that it is in line with your goals and needs.
1. It distracts me from my food and encourages “mindless eating” i.e. overeating.
2. I feel each meal is something to be enjoyed and savored. It helps me feel satisfied mentally & physically because I haven’t been distracted!
Just my two cents.
If it just feels like a bad habit maybe try music or podcasts instead
Also the energy matters. Information is being consumed by us together with eating. All entertaining sources usually bring not the best energy.
So I don’t think that breakfast while watching TV is a great idea.
