Interim strategy jobs are not for the weak and if you want to keep up with productivity and excellence then you’re going to have to give yourself a health boost.
You need to keep yourself in tiptop shape and in as good a condition possible. You wouldn’t want to get cough and colds and sneeze your way through the day or worse catch a flu and call in sick. Tsk tsk tsk. So what better way to stay healthy than to eat the right food?
Of course you need your brain to be quick, clear and at its prime. For this, experts suggest munching up on food rich in antioxidants, Vitamin E, Vitamin B and Omega 3. Blueberries, nuts, beans, peanut butter, broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and salmon are rich in these. Other options also include eating a healthy amount of avocado. Tea, dark chocolate, bread and oatmeal will also be beneficial.
To boost energy, vigor and give you and added oomph, go for lean protein. Surely you don’t want to daze off or look like a sleepy tired zombie. Go and get yourself lean protein such as eggs, fish and chicken breast.
In order to reduce stress and anxiety scientists suggest going for nuts and yogurt as these two have high levels of amino acid, lysine and arginine that can help calm the nerves.
Food rich in B vitamins and folic acid such as whole grains and leafy vegetables will help keep your memory at full blast. Your mom was right when she told you to eat your vegetables you know.
Last but not the least, drink enough water. You have to keep yourself hydrated all the time. Remember that a huge portion of your cells are made up of it so you cannot go on and forego the H2O. Don’t you even dare replace your water intake with sodas. They’re not the same.
Now you don’t necessarily have to gobble every single option listed above. Pick a few in each category and keep their serving size proportionate to your needs and appetite. Oh and yes, do exercise and stretch those muscles. Nutrition and exercise goes hand in hand.
When faced with a full on and busy day, strong and quick problem solving skills are important especially with interim strategy jobs. So go ahead and do your grocery shopping but make sure to add the items above to your list!
