Other balls get drop and one such ball is the healthy eating can get tossed out of the window. It's another thing to think about. What can help is someone like me giving you idea, tips and advice, so that is what this blog is about.
Below there are few meal ideas that will help keep you nourished and healthy on your return to the office/workplace.
Key to Success is Prepping
Planning is key if you want to avoid unhealthy eating habits.
Firstly, plan at the weekend what lunches you can take to work. Write out a shopping list and then pop to the shops.
Prep the at the weekend or the night before, keep it simple. Package up in containers and slip into the fridge. Grab in the morning as you leave for work.
When at Work
It is so easy to munch your lunch when working away. This is not a good idea as it can cause digestive issues. When eating your lunch, if you can, eat away from your desk. Be mindful about your food, by relaxing, smelling and appreciating what you are eating. Lastly, and very importantly don't forget to chew. This is key to good digestion. You are already adjusting an probably feeling stressed so it's important to detress before eating.
Don't Forget to Drink
Getting back into the work situation can affect our usual habits of drinking enough. Take a water bottle to work and refill it at least twice per day. Continually drinks sips of water throughout the day. Hydration is important for good focus and brain function. If you are drooping take a long drink as this may help perk you up.
I hope your transition back to work goes well.
