4 Dietary Habits That Help You Work Smarter and Harder
Most people are familiar with the old adage “work smarter not harder,” but wouldn’t it be nice to be able to do both? You’ve probably also heard the adage “time is money.” Well, logic dictates that to make the most money in the least amount of time you need to be able to perform tasks in an intelligent manner and work with diligence and vigor.
The best way to utilize your full mental and physical potential is to develop dietary habits that will ensure you’re consuming all of the ingredients needed to maximize energy levels throughout the day:
1. Develop a Water Drinking Schedule
When you’re fully hydrated all of your bodily systems can function optimally. On the other hand when you’re dehydrated your creativity, comfort, and energy levels all suffer. Nutritionists recommend a minimum daily water intake of about 64 ounces, or eight 8-ounce glasses per day, which is a good rule of thumb, but if you really want to treat your body like a well-maintained F-1 racecar then you’ll want to make sure you’re replenishing fluids at strategic points in your day.
- Two in the morning– Start by taking 2 glasses in the morning – one before and/or during breakfast and the other after eating. These “starter” glasses will jumpstart your digestive system and make you feel more alert.
- One at brunch – Threehours later drink another glass of water at around brunch time.
- Two at lunch – Three hours after that drink two glasses of water – one before and/or during lunch and one after eating.
- One in the afternoon – Three hours after lunch drink another glass.
- Two at dinner – Drink one glass before and/or during dinner and the other glass afterwards.
Notes: Since you’re also consuming water in the foods you eat this schedule would actually ensure that you get more than the recommended minimum of 64 ounces, but it is better to be slightly over-hydrated than to be dehydrated. If your urine is not completely clear then you’re not getting enough water.
