Eat and Drink Write
This post will only address physical health, but please read on, as a sound body = a sound mind.
4. Ice cream. You can't eat it quickly, which is always conducive to dreamstorming. But you can eat too much of it, which is conducive to nodding off in front of the computer. Go out, buy a coneful and walk around if you're stuck.
5. Tidbits. Avoid mindless munching or you will inhale that can of Pringles or crisps in the same time it takes to delete a paragraph. Prawn and fish crackers make your fingers greasy and stain your keyboard, mouse or touchscreen. ICK!!
6. Pomegranates, pistachios, artichokes etc..., any food you have to peel will make you slow down and think.
7. Water. I am not advocating x number of glasses a day, but consider that when you quaff enough at regular intervals you will have to get up from your chair/desk and go to the toilet. No harm in scheduling mini-breaks and stretching your legs. (apologies to those who have to wear adult-diapers...)
