Don’t Let the Halloween Sugar High Affect Productivity At Work

November 27, 2017 | by: James

It’s that time of year where everyone in the office unleashes their inner child by loading up on sugary treats and dressing up as their alter ego. While Halloween is the time of year to indulge, sugar overload can affect memory, mood, focus, and stress levels, all of which contribute to low productivity at work. To combat sugar-induced comas at the office this month, try out these helpful tips.

Balanced Diet

The office is typically a place of temptation in October due to the constant candy supply. Curb your sugar cravings with a balanced diet, high in protein and fibre. This will keep your stomach full, and will mean you are less likely to go on a sugar binge.

Moderation

Don’t cut yourself off completely from the treats. October is a time for Halloween candy and pumpkin spice everything, so it’s only natural to partake in the festivities with some treats. Limit your sugar intake by treating yourself to just that afternoon pick-me-up. By working hard through the morning, there will be a sweet light at the end of tunnel to get you through the last couple hours of the workday.

Alternatives

Find some healthier alternatives during Halloween time. Bake some healthy, homemade treats to bring to work so you can still satisfy your sweet tooth. Try baking pumpkin pie bread , dark chocolate bark , or vegan pumpkin scones – so good that all your co-workers will want a bite! (You can even bake a little extra for them!) And hey, try to encourage your office to bring in healthier Halloween treats to keep productivity high all around.

High amounts of sugar will leave you feeling foggy, tired, and stressed in the office this Halloween. Follow these three simple tips to stay in tip-top shape so you can truly enjoy the festivities.
