Our food choices can have a direct impact on the way we feel. It can result in energy slumps, lack of concentration, difficulty in sleeping and feeling down and out.
When we are proactive about nourishing our body with the right food it helps to:
- Improve our mood
- Gives us more energy
- Helps us to think more clearly
To perform well at work, we all need to have the right mindset, energy level and ability to focus so it makes sense that we provide our brains and body with what will ensure this can happen.
My three top tips for food at work are:
- Consumption – Eat moderate sized meals consistently so your blood sugar levels are steady which will result in an even mood.
- Double P – Plant foods and Protein – For improved energy and increased feelings of calm
- Hydration – 70% of our brain is made up with water. If you dehydrate it, your concentration levels will decrease.
My lunch n’ learn program called ‘Be Your CEO’ (Chief Energy Optimiser) is designed to educate attendees about this topic as well as sleep and movement habits that improve our professional capability. Reach out if you would like to discuss how this could be of benefit to your colleagues.
