Difficulty FOCUSING, especially at work or class? Here’s a tip to help… My typical business tips are functionally related and not usually of this topic but I wanted to throw this in today because it is soooo incredibly important and because we are SO BUSY in our lives, we tend to forget this. Importantly enough, whether you have ADHD or are just an overwhelmed adult, NUTRITION plays a key part in being able to function at your best. There is a direct link between the food we consume and the effectiveness of how the brain operates. A healthy diet with the right sort of nutritious food helps to minimize the negative effects of ADHD and or difficulty in focusing for adults who simply struggle with this. In contrast, an unhealthy diet of fast food, and food packed with sugars and additives, exacerbates these issues.
There so much information about what you should and shouldn’t eat if you have difficulty focusing or have ADHD. It can get overwhelming. Keeping it simple, here’s one small thing that can make a BIG difference! …………….It’s protein!
When you eat protein with every meal, you have increased:
• problem solving skills,
• memory, and
• stable moods
Examples of good quality protein are:
• chicken and turkey (white meat)
• lean red meat
• protein powder
• dairy products
So, have an egg for breakfast and try to add some protein each meal this wee and let me know how this has made a difference.
