Better still, don’t get bored in the first place. If you’re starting to feel peckish, throw yourself into the next task, project, or episode of Downton Abbey and attempt to get so deeply involved that the gnawing sensation in your middle becomes very much of a secondary consideration.
Attack each task with vigour and enthusiasm as if it were the most important thing you had to do ever, and tell yourself you can eat when it’s done. It’s all about mindset.
If you were right in the middle of auditioning for a part in a movie with your favourite star/ meeting the Queen/ phoning the lottery helpline with the winning six numbers or playing in goal for Chelsea, you wouldn’t be thinking about where your next sandwich was coming from, would you?
