Whether you’re a truckload liquidator mostly on their computer for work or actively in a warehouse or bin store moving product, you should remember how important self-care is… and how significant eating, and eating well, is on maintaining good energy and cognition levels.
We’ve noticed just how often people in liquidation and wholesale tend to skip meals while working, and we’re here to share some advice.
When you’re hard at work, moments of joy and success are interspersed with moments of confusion and, as a result, fatigue. That’s why it’s critical to pay attention to what you eat while you work – what you put in your body could mean the difference between perfect source code and choppy code full of errors.
Next time you find yourself yawning in the middle of the day, try snacks like Olyra Dark Chocolate High Protein Breakfast Sandwiches.
Jerky contains a high amount of protein, which is most useful for athletes, but can be useful if you’re up all night working on a particularly challenging coding project. Choose turkey jerky rather than beef jerky for a healthier option.
The antioxidants found in blueberries help maintain your memory, making them a major brain food. Perhaps eating more blueberries will help you remember things better.
Dark Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans
The best time to start drinking coffee is when you’re in your late teens, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your little caffeine boosts. Espresso beans will keep you awake, while the dark chocolate will do wonders for your memory and your mood.
You don’t have to think about trail mix while you’re eating it; you just keep scooping more into your hands while watching TV. Trail mix can be purchased pre-made, but you can also make your own by using your favorite nuts, dried fruits, and chocolate.
Another snack that you can eat a lot of without realizing it is peanuts; but don’t worry about it. Nuts provide your body with natural oils, fats, and protein it needs, so there is no need to feel guilty about eating too much.
Bananas contain vitamins and minerals that are important for brain function, and chips taste great. When you combine the two, you get a snack that keeps you coding and full at the same time.
Sunflower seeds contain B vitamins that affect your mood and your brain’s cognitive functions. If you want to avoid the messy shells, you can also just purchase sunflower kernels.
You also need a certain amount of carbohydrates each day, along with protein and vitamins. Granola is an excellent source of carbohydrates and fiber for storing energy and avoiding sugar crashes, plus it usually comes in a variety of flavors.
Oh, and one more thing…
Be sure to always hydrate before, during, and after you’re working on a coding project. Remember, even though you’re not outside, you need to stay hydrated. When a dehydrated person meets a bright screen with small letters scrolling up and down, the results are never good. Also, make sure you get 8 hours of sleep each night so that you’ll be well-prepared for the coding challenges that await you!
