Hey ADs,

Do you ever find yourself ‘Fridge-Farming’ – you know, rifling through the fridge or kitchen cupboards for something to devour – even though you’re not even hungry?

This activity usually occurs at around 10pm at night - but if you work from home, mid-afternoon is just as common.

Fridge-Farmers are also often partial to a ‘Cheeky Netflix Binge’ every once in a while – watching a whole season of Homeland, Breaking Bad or The Jinx within a 24 hour period.

If this is you, we’d hazard a guess that both the above indulgences (plus a few others you may enjoy occasionally…) probably leave you feeling guilty, shameful and riddled with regret afterwards.

Well, in today’s Life Nugget, we’re going to tell you why the odd binge-out is not only permissible, it’s actually advisable, too.

The world we’re currently inhabiting is growing ever-more health conscious, which is a great thing – so long as we don’t use this as yet another tool to beat ourselves up with when we fall short of our own insanely high expectations:
