How Food Choices Affect Productivity
If you stop to think about it, it really shouldn’t come as a surprise that your diet has a direct effect on your productivity. If you’ve ever eaten a carb-loaded meal in the middle of the afternoon, you know it can be hard to concentrate when all you want to do is nap. Conversely, when you have to plan work lunches in advance—and pack healthy, nutritious meals—you might surprise yourself with how much you can accomplish in a work-day.
While the science behind food choices and productivity can be complicated, a pared-down version is as follows:
Our body converts almost everything we eat into glucose, which our brains need to stay focused and alert. When glucose levels spike or drop, our productivity suffers. Different foods are processed at different rates in our body—either helping or hindering productivity.
To help improve your productivity throughout the day, make healthy food choices:
- Limit processed foods
- Don’t skip breakfast
- Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
- Choose healthy snacks (vegetables, fruits or nuts) over chips and candy
