  • Snacking on the Job

    I have one of those jobs where it's difficult to take time to sit down and have a meal, yet the schedule lends itself nicely to taking small snack breaks. Usually, I avoid snacking between meals, but we have daily faculty meetings, and someone often brings something to pass around, and then at the end of the school day, before I get busy preparing for the next day, it's very easy to take a few minutes for a little something.

    Do you snack on the job? How do you keep it in check, especially if you're sitting at a desk in a cubicle or office and could conceivably eat all day long while you're getting your work done? What's your preferred eat-at-the-desk snack?

    And what about coffee or other drinks? How do they figure into the routine of your on-the-clock time?

    I pretty much stick to lots of water. Sometimes I snack, if someone brings something in or makes popcorn, or sometimes I bring something in for everyone (although not often enough, truth be told).

    But mainly I just drink water. And I brush my teeth a lot so I'm not as tempted to snack.

      At least something to drink, either water or soda. Sometimes I eat lunch at my desk.
