BENEFITS IN THE WORK PLACE
It increases productivity
People who eat well and keep up with their fitness are emphatically more productive than those who do not. What we eat directly impacts our brain’s ability to problem solve, think critically and logically, and put forth our best effort. Not only that, but our diets are directly correlated to our ability to stay focused, concentrated, and on task.
It decreases crashes
Unhealthy diets are usually, among other things, high in sugar. Many people eat five to ten times the amount of sugar that they should intake every day. The result is a sugar crash: the body essentially runs up a hill as it takes in all the sugar, and falls off the other end as soon as it has processed it all. As an employer, it is important to replace the sugary drinks and food in the office with healthy options for your employees.
It keeps the sickness at bay
One of the largest benefits of eating healthily is that you get sick less often. Those who have well-balanced diets are giving their body all of the tools it needs to fight bugs. People who don’t eat healthy are extremely vulnerable to sickness: they’ll catch every little cough and flu that goes around.
Eating healthy makes people better workers: they’re happier, less sick, more productive, and more consistent.
