Intermittent fasting saves time. It’s not just the physical act of eating, but the time, money and mental energy expended on thinking about what to eat, where to eat, travelling there, preparing the food and of course, purchasing it. In fact, it could even save you so much time that you’ll be at a loss as to what to do with it.
One thing is for sure though; you’ll be happier.
The Journal of Business Ethics found that ‘the experience of time affluence was positively related to subjective well-being’. In other words, that wonderful feeling of having a bit of time to spare (and not being rushed) makes people a whole lot happier.
Conversely, feeling PRESSED for time will have consequences. A study in the Journal of Health and Social Behaviour found that excessive time pressure made people more prone to anxiety and depression. Not only that, but researchers from the European Journal of Public Health ranked time pressure among the most influential social trends that contribute to the rising rates of obesity.
Intermittent fasting saves time, it’s undeniable, and saving time can save lives, or at least make them much more enjoyable.
It could save you a bit of cash, too. Especially at the airport.
