Do not, under any circumstances, turn on the television
That glowing seductress will lure you into her trap for the entire day. Even if you think you’re just going to watch BBC Breakfast I can assure you that – trance-like – your fingers will creep their way to the Smart Hub button and find Netflix, Amazon or, if you’re me, The Real Housewives of absolutely any city, it doesn’t matter. Just something to have on in the background, you’ll tell yourself. Next of course, nothing goes better with a TV show than a truly complicated, multi-ingredient breakfast, right? Off you trot to the kitchen for an hour. And then it’s lunch. Back to the kitchen you go. Ask a partner, flatmate or friend to hide the remote if you must. Save yourself.
