What you eat influences your careerby Annalisa Lista - 2013.09.10
People who eat well are better at work. This is the main point of a report issued by Vielife, where the importance of a correct lifestyle is analyzed in relation to working performances. A good eating style should consist of 1) number of servings of fruit and vegetables per day; 2) choice of low fat food ; 3) estimated fibre intake. Findings about 40,000 European employees highlighted that those reporting the highest effectiveness scores and the highest energy levels also reported the highest nutrition scores. Low energy from poor nutrition, then, are associated with low levels of resilience that can affect productivity and absenteeism. People who don’t eat well are, in fact, 15% less productive than others, this equating to 16 days of lost productivity per annum. On the other hand, employees who eat healthily report 28% better stress management. Such outcomes reveal how a correct way of eating reflects upon one’s brilliance at work.
