Reduce Your Sugar Intake

First, you’ll want to reduce your sugar intake. It’s easier said than done when so many items we eat have an influx of sugar. If you want to give up sugar altogether, then it’s best that you slowly take it from your diet, instead of quitting cold turkey. Cutting back on your sugar is a slow process and can be difficult when your coworkers are bringing in treats, but once you go a few days without sugar you’ll feel and look better.

Add Veggies To Breakfast

Vegetables are so delicious and should be consumed with every meal. By adding vegetables and protein into your meals, you’re able to get the brain power to get through the day. Vegetables are very low in calories and will fill you up a lot better than eating a donut or a bowl of cereal and it’ll get those gears working hard, so you start off the day right. There are many ways to incorporate veggies into your breakfast that range from eating a cucumber, feta, and tomato salad to mini omelets to take with you on the go.

Practice Mindful Eating

Mindful eating is probably something you’ve heard of because of how popular it is. Mindful eating is a great way to reset your intentions toward food because it allows you to think about everything you put in your mouth and actually appreciate it. When you’re working at your desk, you’re not thinking about what you’re eating and thus you’ll eat more. Mindful eating will let you sit down with your food and really enjoy the taste and effort that went into the meal.
