Have you ever been so hungry that you couldn’t think straight? That’s because food provides the fuel we need to perform. And if we are underperforming at work, especially after lunch, then the problem lies in what we are feeding our bodies at lunchtime. At Transform Health, we share three ways poor nutrition may be hampering your productivity.
Let’s face it. When we are busy, it’s a lot easier to grab a burger and fries or some other unhealthy option for lunch. But fast food can really slow us down because of the high fat content. This explains why we feel so groggy afterward.
- Decreased Mental Effectiveness
Our energy levels are not the only thing affected by poor nutrition. Eating well also nourishes our brain. There is a lot of published research that highlights the more fruits and vegetables people consumed on a daily basis the more creative and engaged they tended to be – critical for performance in the workplace.
- Higher Levels of Stress and Depression
When we are constantly making poor food choices for lunch, over time we will begin to see the effects on our waistline. No one wants to feel fat. So we start feeling guilty, hopeless and helpless. If we are constantly worried about the howe look, it will be hard for us to perform to our fullest potential.
