You’ve dedicated the next few hours to highly-productive work, but instead, you’re sitting at your desk, just staring at the computer screen.
What causes us to sometimes be so distracted?
There are many different answers to that question, but I’ll tell you one of the most prevalent reasons – and luckily, it also happens to be one of the easiest ones to fix.
To learn how to finally fix your lack of focus, read on.
Let me try to guess your predicament.
You’re a night owl. Your best work comes after 9 PM. You usually eat a big dinner at 5 PM - lots of rice, chicken, veggies etc.
You’re nice and full but after a few hours, your still up, desperately trying to achieve a productive output of work while battling lightheadedness, a slight headache, vicious cravings, irritability etc
Welcome to the wonderful world of hypoglycemia!
In this scenario, Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) was brought on by a big meal with lots of carbs causing a rapid spike in blood glucose, which leads to a very big crash in blood glucose.
Yeah, sure, people fast all the time. But it takes time to train your body to work well with that adjustment!. Glucose is the main source of fuel for the brain, so what happens when blood glucose gets too low? You guessed it, cognition becomes impaired.
So what can we do as a healthy alternative to reaching for sugary snacks to improve focus and stabilize blood sugar?
Luckily for you, I’ve got some pretty great and easy tips!
- Eat smaller meals, more frequently - Remember what I said about big spikes leading to big crashes in blood sugar? I’m not saying eating your standard 3 bigger meals a day is bad in all scenarios, but it certainly makes things harder for those who are trying to stabilize blood glucose levels. Instead of eating 3 big meals per day, have 6 smaller ones. This is going to help regulate blood sugar and help control cravings!
- Snack on foods high in fibre and protein - Foods high in fiber and protein are digested at a much slower rate, keeping you satiated for much longer and preventing spikes in blood sugar.
- Drink lots of water - This probably isn’t the first time you’ve heard that the body can often mistake thirst for hunger. Stats don’t lie! Drink at least 8 cups of water per day, whether it be from pure water, herbal teas, or watery veggies!
I have implemented these tricks into my life and have noticed a world of difference.
However, like many things in life, sometimes we need a little extra help to get to where we want to be.
