We all know that eating junk food all the time is bad for our health. Did you know that it is also bad for business? Here are a few reasons why.
Eating Bad Food is Bad for Business, Here’s Why
Decreased focus and energy
Eating fast food for lunch may seem easy now, but you will pay for it with lack of focus for the rest of the workday. Harvard Business Review reports that “food has a direct impact on our cognitive performance.”
Headaches and digestive issues
Common medical symptoms, inducing headaches and digestive problems, have been “anecdotally linked to preservatives and synthetic dyes” according to Business Insider. Although there isn’t a definitive link between these symptoms and junk foods, there is a positive correlation as more people suffer from these types of issues. As far as work performance is concerned, we all know it’s difficult to get much work done when your head or your stomach is hurting.
Weights gain and high blood pressure
All that extra sugar and sodium found in bad food can lead to unhealthy weight gain and high blood pressure. These issues can lead to bigger issues, such as diabetes and heart attacks, all of which will prevent anyone from performing at their maximum potential while in the office.
You may not realize it while picking up that go-to fast food lunch today, but the effects of eating bad food consistently will appear sooner or later. The lack of energy that you feel right now, or that regular afternoon tension headache, might be due to the food you put in your body. Afterall, being a successful business owner or entrepreneur means being healthy too.
