I have shared my recent experience with adding my eating schedule to my work calendar in Slack, and I want to share this insight with you.
A couple of months ago I’ve added slots for when I take food (breakfast, snack time, etc) into my work calendar.
I take food ~5 times a day, and having those slots with notifications resulted in interesting effects:
- I do not think about whether I need to eat something at the moment, as I know I can rely on the calendar. This resulted in much less sweet stuff consumption, which is my main dietary problem
- Those notifications force me to make breaks when I tend to not do that
- Having such slots allowed me to have breaks between the meetings scheduled into my calendar
- I do have time to cook, as the time is accounted in those slots
This is how Friday looks in my calendar (both work + personal cals):
