What role does nutrition play in a thriving business?
"Hangry," that's what!
Employers might be confused as to why nutrition is relevant to a healthy, thriving workplace. Sure, we all know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, or that sugary drinks and snacks are unhealthy, for example. But knowing something and making choices that reflect that knowledge are often two different things!
So many life obstacles get in the way of making good choices for our minds and bodies. Cooking or planning meals takes too much time, healthy eating has a reputation of costing a lot of money, and eating healthy foods doesn’t always please the palate - even for adults.
Here at LifeSpaceHealth, we understand these obstacles, and we know how to navigate through them, stress-free. We know that your employees are busier than ever and few of us have time to think about eating well. Food has a huge impact on well we feel, how productive we can be and the attitudes we bring to the table. Let us help your employees get on a path to eating, and therefore, feeling better.
So, how can we help?
We take a holistic approach toward nutrition instead of focusing on things like food pyramids or counting calories. We educate our community as a whole about the relationship between the food we eat and its impact on our brains.
For example, did you know that when your blood sugars drops because you haven't eaten in a while, your body starts producing cortisol (stress hormone)? This leads to our old friend “hangry.” We often cannot recognize this feeling in ourselves; but the symptoms we see are lack of concentration or retention, irritability, anxiety and anger, just to name a few.
We will share time saving, budget friendly tips on how to take simple ingredients and combine them to provide your body and brain what it needs for optimal results. Meals don’t have to be big but they do need to be nourishing. And we can help you get the "biggest bang for your buck," so to speak, both nutritionally and financially.
By learning some quick tips we can lessen cravings, feel full longer, and most importantly, feel good. Let’s let “Hangry” be a thing of the past.
