This is the time when you need to make various important decisions such as the funeral services etc. All the effort and energy you put into organizing everything can easily leave you tired out. So much so that you will be more prone to ignoring your health and it’s also when you start to eat poorly.
It doesn’t become difficult to simply grab from fast food or any other food that is easily accessible.
