Do you work to live, or live to work?
Either way, your job requires that you don’t just meet expectations, but that you fly high above them, and perform at unexpected levels.
What’s eating you?
If you’re munching on candy, chips or cookies from your office’s vending machine, you most likely are packing on pounds, and even finding it hard to burn the midnight oil. Working in an office, and spending 40 or more hours a week sitting down (and stressing out!) won’t just weight heavily on your waistline.
It will weigh heavily on your mental health, attitude, and all over physical health. The office is where you spend the majority of your life. It’s the place that perhaps you shine your brightest, do your best ‘life’s work’, and act like a super star. It can also quite possibly be the place you have developed high sugar and high fat eating habits, which today, has taken a toll on your health and well-being.
The time has come to put as much of an emphasis on smart. snacking habits as you do your motivation to get ahead in the rat race.
Trade in cookies for hummus, strawberry cupcakes for fresh,strawberries, and as a result you won’t just fit into your pants better. You’ll have the energy to tackle spreadsheets, emails, and multiple projects with ease.
Here are eight of the healthiest, and easiest to prepare snacks to bring to the office, munch on through your lunch hour, and keep your metabolism and your good mood burning until it’s time to clock out!
The most important meal of your day is and always will be breakfast. How do you think you can go full force in your morning presentation to the CEO or pitch the next great idea to your sales team if you’re low on energy? Get into the habit of slow cooking homemade oatmeal the night before, and grab it to go.
Add some antioxidants to the mix such as fresh. blueberries, dried cranberries, raisins and a dollop of maple syrup. Oatmeal is a smart way to get your carbs, but don’t skimp because you want to lose weight.
