Are you spending hours caring for the needs of an ailing person you love? Have a good book available to read. Catch up with your Bible reading. I would not bring in a book that involves tragedies, guts and gore, or terrible things happening to somebody who is ill. However, mystery novels and other light reading will make those long hours evaporate. This suggestion may not sound appetizing, but it is one way to keep your mind off food. Additionally, you can remain alert while enabling this set-apart time to enrich your brain.
