You Cannot Be Productive Unless….

Productivity is a state or quality of being productive

 

Productivity is defined as a state or quality of being productive

A productive workday begins before you leave home, with a nutritious wake-up meal. You need to start your day with your body fueled, but it’s important that you use the right kind of fuel to ensure better concentration and a steady energy level throughout the morning.

Instead, stick with the following food groups:

  • Fruits and vegetables. Fresh produce is best, but you can also try frozen. You can also have fruit and vegetable juice or smoothies without added sugar–make sure that the label says 100 percent juice.
  • Whole grains. These can be found in certain hot or cold cereals, crackers, rolls, or bagels. You can also try low-fat bran muffins or Melba toast.
  • Low-fat protein. Good examples for breakfast include hardboiled eggs, peanut butter, and lean meat.
  • Low-fat dairy. Try skim milk, low-fat yogurt, and low-fat cheese.

The good news is that contrary to what many of us assume, the trick to eating right is not learning to resist temptation. It’s making healthy eating the easiest possible option.

Don’t Skip Meals
When you’re busy at work, food may be the first thing to go–but it shouldn’t be. Skipping meals is a false economy that will quickly lead to decreased energy and productivity. Without a regular supply of nutritious foods throughout the day, your body will not get the vitamins, minerals, and protein that it needs.

And you may think that skipping meals will help with your waistline, but it won’t–the UCLA Health System notes that your body tends to compensate for the missing meals later, leading to muscles going down and fat going up, usually around the middle.

Pack Your Lunch
To avoid the temptations of skipping meals, hitting the vending machine, or joining co-workers for unhealthy fast food, pack your lunch to ensure that you have the types of food you need. Sandwiches on whole grain breads, pitas, or wraps are a good choice, with lean fillings like tuna, sliced eggs, or lean meats like turkey or chicken. Bring small containers of chopped veggies, almonds, granola bars, bananas, and apples for additional snacks during the day to keep your brain and body humming.

The good news is that contrary to what many of us assume, the trick to eating right is not learning to resist temptation. It’s making healthy eating the easiest possible option.

Employees who eat healthy all day long were 25 percent more likely to have higher job performance, the study found, while those who eat five or more servings of fruit and vegetables at least four times a week were 20 percent more likely to be more productive.

For you to be productive, you must imbibe a healthy eating habit. You will never be productive if you do not :

1 Make your eating decisions before you get hungry. If you’re going out to lunch, choose where you’re eating in the morning, not at 12:30 PM.   If you’re ordering in, decide what you’re having after a mid-morning snack. Studies show we’re a lot better at resisting salt, calories, and fat in the future than we are in the present. Do not wait until you no longer can bear it before going for food.

2. Don’t wait till all is lost . Spikes and drops in blood sugar are both bad for productivity and bad for the brain. Smaller, more frequent meals keep up your glucose at a more consistent level than relying on a midday feast.

Eat healthy snacks in between work. Once there is glucose depletion, there will be a lack of self-control

3. make healthy snacking easier to achieve than unhealthy snacking. Place a container of almonds and a selection of protein bars by your computer, near your line of vision. Use an automated subscription service, like Jumia, to restock supplies. Bring a bag of fruit to the office on Mondays so that you have them available throughout the week.

4. Do Not Miss Breakfast : You may say you are not used to eating early in the morning but you may have to change of your productivity level is low at work. This is a sign that there is glucose depletion in you body and your brain.
