You can’t expect to hop in the car and get to work if you don’t fill it up with gas, right? Well, your body is no different.
With a busy day ahead, it’s tempting to skip meals and drink like a million cups of coffee, but it just doesn’t work. Taking the time to eat nutritious meals, snacks, and drink plenty of water will ultimately bring out your best clarity, focus, creativity and keep you powered up through the day without the dreaded afternoon crash.
Take frequent breaks, too. Taking a quick walk or chatting with your work neighbor can boost your productivity and avoid burnout. It’s also perfectly ok for you to set your own pace. Remember, your life- including your workday—is a marathon, not a sprint.
