My eating habits are so much healthier when I'm disciplined and pack my own lunch and cook dinner, and I really should do this every single day even if I have all those events to attend. I mean, I could never pass up some free finger foods, but I could do without the in-between appointments conbini sandwich. Lately I've been snacking on edamame and tofu, as usual. I wonder if I eat too much tofu, I eat it almost daily. I should google that.
In other news, I joined a suicide prevention walk on Wednesday, which is World Suicide Prevention Day. It's a big topic in Japan (and everywhere else in the world for that matter) which holds a lot of stigma, but I think it's important to raise awareness. I think a lot of non-Japanese people living in Japan cannot easily find the help they need, or don't know where to turn. I witnessed a lot of people around me experiencing distress during our time in Japan, and unfortunately I wasn't aware of all the resources available, but they do exist, like the TELL Lifeline, which is a number everyone should program in their phones.
On a brighter note, this weekend is a long one (Respect for the Elderly holiday) and I'm so thankful I'll get to sleep in three mornings in a row. I just hope it stops raining, it's been so wet and grey all week.
