Packing a lunch is one of the best habits I've learned over the years. It began out of necessity when I worked at a job with zero nearby lunch options and has turned into a rewarding part of my daily life. I love the feeling of knowing that A) I don't need to search for or think about what I'll eat for lunch, B) I can eat whenever hunger strikes, and C) I'm in control of the amount I'm eating and spending on food and those decisions aren't being made when I'm already hangry. Hangry = a combination of hunger and angry, the bad mood that lurks in when you're starving.
I've been documenting my recent packed lunches on both Instagram and Facebook using the #packedlunchproject hashtag.
Step 1: Pack your lunch with me
Can packing a lunch help you take a step toward one of your goals? Perhaps you're wanting to save money, eat more healthfully, and/or ensure that you don't skip lunch or overdose on coffee and junk food. Set a goal to start packing lunch and see how the habit fits into your life. Start with just one or two days a week. Maybe pack two lunches on one day and save them for the craziest days and see how packing a lunch can help make your day a little better.
Step 2: Win prizes
Regardless of the reason that you pack your lunch, I want to see your packed lunch photos and give you some of my favorite goodies. This is the first GIVEAWAY from Figs and Flights and all you've got to do is pack your lunch, then show me the picture!
