We all have responsibilities and work that we handle on a daily basis. Who doesn’t want to feel their absolute best and increase their productivity? Food is fuel for our bodies and in order to get the best out of ourselves, we have to put the best in.
Here are the top 5 best foods that help you stay productive during the day.
Though technically not a food, water is the most important fuel you can put into your body for productivity. Our bodies are 70% water and it is needed for virtually every function our bodies perform. As we go about our day, the water stored in our body depletes which means we wind up with less water to help our brains and vital organs perform efficiently. Drinking 8 cups of water per day will replenish your water stores and keep the brain functioning well so that you are better able to focus and handle your business.
Provided you aren’t allergic, eating nuts throughout the day is a wonderful way to get the protein, vitamin E, antioxidants, and amino acids your body needs to boost brain performance and memory- both major keys to increasing productivity.
Matcha, or green tea leaf ground into a fine powder, is an excellent source of fiber and antioxidants. Antioxidants have been found to improve motor coordination as well as memory and help to protect the body from disease. Better coordination and reduction of illnesses definitely helps productivity to increase.
Productivity is greatly aided by energy and bananas, with their high glucose content, are a terrific energy boost. Just one banana provides the daily amount of glucose your body needs which means you can skip the excessive carbs and sugar. Energy boost without the crash? Sounds good to me!
Consistent blood flow to the brain is necessary for enhanced productivity. Eating an avocado a day will increase blood flow and stimulate brain cells. With over 20 vitamins and minerals plus healthy monounsaturated fat, avocados help to reduce stress and improve your mood. Grubbing on some guacamole throughout the day will literally make you feel better.
