Nutrition plays a crucial role in overall health, contributing to energy levels and the normal functioning of the body. When you’re in and out of meetings, on the road, or flying regularly, it can be difficult to take time to fit in three healthy meals a day.
While it can be difficult – follow these simple guidelines and keep on top of your body’s nutritional needs:
1. Eat a good breakfast – if you don’t have time in the morning, grab a banana or a sugar-free muesli bar, or prepare overnight oats the night before and keep them in your fridge, ready to eat quickly in the morning
2. Keep lunch light – vegetables, fish, meat, beans and grains are all great energy providers and will help you avoid an afternoon slump
3. Take your own food on the road and on flights – avoid fast food and airplane food wherever possible
4. Stop consuming caffeine four to six hours before bedtime
5. Eat dinner at least two to three hours before bedtime – if you’re hungry late at night, have a small, healthy snack
If you follow these tips and remember to stay hydrated, try to drink two liters of water a day. This can help to avoid fatigue and stay on top of things so you can make the most of your time
