To become or remain an elite Recruitment Consultant you need to make sure that you are performing at your best. Many of our Recruitment Consultants would agree that the food you eat is the ‘fuel’ which powers you through the working day. If you want to perform to the best of your ability, then you need to eat to the best of it too! That’s why it is vital to enjoy a healthy and balanced diet.
We’ve compiled four top tips to ensure you're eating working at your best every single day!
1. Start the day correctly
It's important you make time for breakfast. Dragging yourself out of bed that little bit earlier can make all the difference here.
Eating breakfast gets your metabolism into action and ensures the process of converting your food into energy which commences at the correct time. Eating breakfast also helps maintain a stable metabolism. Skipping it will result in an energy crash during the afternoon.
2. Think food
Your brain is hugely food-sensitive, and eating can have a near immediate impact, affecting how you think and process. Everything you consume turns into glucose, which your brain and body uses to energise you throughout the course of the day.
What you eat can affect how much energy you have in your system. If your blood-sugar levels spike, or you eat fatty foods, your memory can become temporarily impaired.
3. Drink right
Consistent fluid levels will help you function so when thirsty or dehydrated. Be sure to drink plenty otherwise you may feel tired and struggle to focus if you overlook the importance of this.
Our brain cells require twice the amount of energy than other cells in the body, so keeping your brain fully fuelled with the correct fluids can be pivotal.
What you are sipping on is arguably more important than what you have prepared for lunch. Think carefully whether you want water or soft drinks to refuel.
4. Be committed
If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right. You have to be committed to performing in your role, so why not be committed to committing to fuel yourself in the best-possible manner?
Take the time to discover the best eating and drinking schedules for you and consider how you could improve your productivity via improved nutrition.
Committing to addressing your needs and experimenting to figure out what works best will likely prove a game-changer! It's just like anything in life, you take out what you put in. Put in high quality goodness and you'll get the results.
