If we're too tired to do anything except watch TV or cruise the internet, go to sleep.

Agree, disagree?

I have to admit, I struggle sometimes to remember this Secret of Adulthood. I don't have trouble getting off the internet, but sometimes I watch TV because I feel too tired to read.

I know, however, that when I'm too tired to read something new, I'm better off re-reading something I've read before -- such as one of my favorite works of children's literature. Because they're familiar, I can enjoy the pleasure of reading, even when my brain feels fried.

I'm a big fan of the pleasures of TV, but I enjoy TV most when it's demanding. If I'm too tired to read, I'm probably also too tired to watch that kind of TV. I love shows like The Wire or Game of Thrones, for instance, but I can't watch it when I feel exhausted.

As a sleep zealot, I do try to get myself to go to sleep as soon as I feel sleepy.

Look what chef Elanya from Titanium Living has made for breakfast! 😱
Chia Seed Pudding, topped with what evs you have in the fridge!

2 heaping tbs chia seeds, approx 30g
1 cup coconut cream
2 tbsp maple syrup, or sweetener of choice
a scraping of vanilla bean, if you have some, otherwise a few drops of organic vanilla extract will do the trick
fruits, berries, compote, or whatever you have available, to use as topping

1. In a medium bowl, combine all the ingredients, except the topping Ingredients. Whisk well.
2. Let the mixture stand for about 10 min, then whisk again.
3. Cover the bowl, and place in the fridge overnight. This allows the chia seeds to soak up all the goodness of the coconut cream, which is what keeps you fuller for longer.
4. When ready to eat, remove from fridge and decant into serving glasses. Top with your choice of fruit, berries, seeds, nuts or compote. Dark chocolate shavings work good too.
5. Enjoy!
