“Eating at Work” – a new Desk Yogi series
We all know that studies about eating well are one thing, and taking action is another—especially when we’re on deadline and not wanting to leave our desk to eat. That’s why we’ve launched a new Desk Yogi series, Eating at Work. Titles include a basic introduction to eating better at work, to specific sessions on grains, vegetables, smoothies, soups, and more. We even cover condiments, sauces, and spices.
How much food do you eat at work? And how often do you really take a break to do it? Research shows that only 1 in 5 workers regularly take a lunch break. 28% “seldom if ever” take a lunch break at all. Even without scientific research and polls, it’s likely that most people know that this isn’t the optimum way to treat their bodies. I’ve founded and maintained corporate employee healthy eating programs in my career, and even then I skipped meals and ate at my desk most of the time. It’s not easy for anyone.
What we put in our body (and when) affects our mood and our productivity. Plus, when we get hungry, we tend to make not-so-great food choices, seeking fast energy in sugar-laden foods that later make us crash. It’s shouldn’t be a surprise to find out that eating unhealthy food correlates to a potential 66 percent increase in the loss of productivity. So, it’s no wonder that more companies are bringing in healthy, and oftentimes free, food into the workplace to help boost employees (and the bottom line) as much as possible.
