Do you eat breakfast before work or at the office?
Some of us can’t function without eating something first thing in the A.M. It’s the same as not having any coffee straight after you get up; it simply does not compute. The prudent adult rises a little earlier, whisks something together, and ensures they're at least almost human when they get to the office.
Hanger is a real thing; it and work should never collide. An empty stomach inspires plenty of irrational thoughts and inexcusable emotional outbursts. The last person you want to expose that side of yourself to is your manager.
Eating breakfast before work is also a way to gracefully ease into the day. You’re more relaxed when you wake up to food, somehow less hurried to get out the door and especially a little less aggravated at every living creature you come into contact with.
Mornings are for cutting it as close to the chest as you can sleep-wise. Sleep is more important to being refreshed than eating is. Why waste precious, extra shuteye on Cheerios when you can just have something at your desk?
There’s a certain freedom to eating breakfast at work. You’re not confined to whatever scraps are left at home, and despite being physically at your desk, smugly eating a breakfast sandwich lets everyone know that, no, you’re not on the clock yet, back off. Maybe you even work at an office that graciously provides a bevy of snacks to choose from, saving you money and providing you with a few minutes to yourself before you’re forced to check Outlook.
