The food that we eat will be the supply of energy for our body to get through the day, especially when you are working in the office because this will be the significant factor in your ability to be focused on work and have an efficient output.
The food that we eat contains glucose that supplies our brain the much-needed energy to make it function efficiently and to facilitate the constant firing of signals between the neurons; in simpler terms, this is the fuel to make our brain function well during the peak hours of work.
If there is a lack of supply of glucose in the brain, it will be unable to process neurons that results in poor performance in the workplace and can even affect the mood of the person. In this article from Fruitful office, let us show you the importance of having fruits in an office pantry.
People are always drawn to drink coffee, sugary drinks like soft drinks and soda or munch a cookie, or open up a bag of chips at their office pantry to get the much-needed supply of glucose to energize themselves, when in fact, this will only make things worse. Glucose that is found in artificial foods and drinks can easily boost the level of glucose in the brain but it will also plummet the level that easy and very fast. Foods that contain artificial sweetener could even become the reason to develop unwanted diseases such as diabetes.
The bottom line is that it is not all about not just when you eat, but what you eat matters most, and to promote wellness and a healthy lifestyle in the office, why not give suggestion to the higher office to supply the pantry with healthy foods like organic fruits which are a very good natural source of glucose and other essential nutrients that nourishes not just the brain but the body as well.
Office workers tend to consume high amounts of glucose when they deal with tasks that challenge them mentally and low glucose levels often lead to cognitive impairment that results in poor work performance. Instead of drinking a soda or an energy drink, why not eat organic fruits? This is actually the best way for employees to become more productive at the same time stay healthy.
Having snacks in the pantry would be great, but the company should also be aware and concern what type of snack or food it serves to its employees. Why not replace a bag of chips with apples, oranges, or bananas that are very easy to store on the countertop? Aside from being a rich source of glucose, it also contains lesser calories that if unused will become fat. Fruits, particularly organic which is the most preferred produce contains not just vitamins and minerals but fiber as well that helps the body digest the food easily. Fruits at the pantry give the employees a very positive awareness on keeping themselves healthy and this is also very ideal for mid-morning and afternoon snack.
Serving healthy foods and fruits in the pantry will not just increase the awareness among employees to stay healthy but, this also boosts their morale, productivity and decrease the absenteeism.
