As I’m getting old (not older, old), I find I need to pay much greater attention to the difference between feeling hungry and feeling tired.
These days when I’m tempted to reach for a square of chocolate, a handful of nuts, or even a cup of coffee, what I need is not calories or caffeine but rest. Sometimes all I need is to put my head back and close my eyes for five minutes. Sometimes I need as much as 30 minutes on a bed with a pillow.
I don’t need nearly as much food as I used to.
But I do need more frequent energy-restorers.
