16. Lack of Sufficient Sleep
Most people may not be aware of this, but getting a good night’s sleep has quite the significant impact on your appetite, and ultimately, your goals of having a healthy breakfast.
Research reveals that missing a single night’s sleep can cause serious disruptions to the functioning of the hormones that control our appetite.
So, if you fail to take sufficient sleep at night, you’ll end up feeling much hungrier in the morning. Therefore, it is essential to get at least eight hours of sleep each night. If you find it difficult to fall asleep, you can start by turning out all the lights and your technological devices, and take a soothing cup of chamomile tea an hour before hitting the bed.
17. Eating too Fast
If you have a habit of always running late in the morning, you probably rush through your breakfast, or gobble down a stale bagel while running to work. Research reveals that the stomach needs some time to signal your brain that your appetite has been satiated, therefore, you need to slow it down and give your breakfast some time.
Eat slowly, chew mindfully and be sure to put down your fork between each bite. A normal and healthy breakfast lasts for at least 20 minutes, and it’s advisable to stop eating when your appetite has been nearly satiated.
Even if you’re eating a nutritional bar to fulfill your health goals, eat it mindfully and take 20 minutes so you chew slowly.
