You’ve heard that you are what you eat. An article over at HBR indicates that healthy eating affects your productivity, so apparently you do what you eat as well.
Instead of waiting until lunch to grab a big meal (which could be a Big Mac and fries), it’s better to snack on nuts, fruits, and vegetables throughout the day: “Smaller, more frequent meals maintain your glucose at a more consistent level than relying on a midday feast.”
And those fruits and vegetables (which you know you should be eating) are just plain better for you in every way:
Fruits and vegetables contain vital nutrients that foster the production of dopamine, a neurotransmitter that plays a key role in the experience of curiosity, motivation, and engagement. They also provide antioxidants that minimize bodily inflammation, improve memory, and enhance mood.
Grab some trail mix, a bag of carrots, and an apple on your way to work–or the library–and be more productive.
And, if you’re on the LCU campus, remember that we have Business department (and friends) lunch in the Cafe every Wednesday at 1:00. Let’s enjoy a salad together.
