When we ponder about the factors that contribute to our overall performance at work, we do not give much consideration to food.
Life at the office can be hectic, with no signs of stopping or slowing down. This leads to an increase in stress levels, development of unhealthy lifestyle habits and irregular eating patterns. Most days, our work starts on a healthy note and we have a balanced lunch, but by mid-afternoon, boredom, or having too much leads to unplanned snack attacks.
Sometimes, tight deadlines, overlapping meetings, and other work commitments make us skin or delay our snack or meal time, that's not really helpful either.
According to Dr Rajeshwari Shetty of SL Raheja Hospial, "Stress eating is a big point of concern amongst office goers; stress and anxiety-induced hunger can have long-term consequences for your waistline. Making simple and smart food choices throughout your workday can help boost your creativity and productivity while reducing fatigue and minimising stress."
Here are five useful things you can keep in mind to help you power through your workday:
1. Don't skip your breakfast.
2. Ban sugary snacks from the workplace.
3. Stay hydrated, consume plenty of water.
4. Stay away from sugar-laden and caffeine-rich drinks.
5. Carry home-made nourishing lunch, don't skip lunch break.
So, if you do get stressed out at work and reach for the snack box, these healthy and nutritious snacking options will fuel you up for the rest of the day!
