I just talked last time about the importance of eating not only for weight control and health optimization, but also for the control and improvement of your concentration and focus. After all, how productive can you be in life if your diet isn’t allowing you to be able to sit down and focus intently on one accomplishment for several hours?
Chances are, your diet may be sabotaging your chances of concentration without interference, and your ability to think critically by the foods you choose.
And, what’s the most important meal of the day when it comes to your concentration and focus? Well, it is breakfast, of course. The reason that breakfast is so important is that it starts your body off on the right foot, so to speak. It basically makes your day start off with the best intentions by prepping your brain to focus on the tasks at hand so you can accomplish a lot.
It preps those neurons to bump off of eachother with precise inegrity, and if you don’t get the right foods, or enough calories, or enough of the right nutrients that will carry you and your blood sugar through the next several hours, then, well, you just might as well kiss the majority of your day goodbye.
One of the best breakfasts I’ve found that helps me get through to lunch without buckling from starvation or low blood sugar, is oatmeal and nuts. I love this combo not only because of the way it tastes, but also because it helps me get through several hours with concentrating, feeling pretty good as far as mood, and being generally highly productive for a while. I may even add some blueberries and maybe a tasty chicken sausage to it as well to increase the protein balance.
