3 Health Strategies to Improve your Work Productivity

3 Health Strategies to Improve your Work Productivity

It is not about working harder... it is about working smarter. I do not love the emphasis around working 10-16 hour days 5-7 days a week. It affects all areas of health as the weeks turn into months turn into years. As a busy professional you want to be as productive yourself as well as your employees. 

Here are a few statistics from an article by Aleksandar Dimovski(1) :

  • The average employee is only productive for 2 hours and 53 minutes per day.
  • Engaged employees are more productive, resulting in a 21% increase in profits.
  • 41% of stressed employees state that stress negatively affects productivity.

The numbers are staggering ... no wonder some employers push their employees to work longer days .. they may get a full 4 hours out of them!

Inflammation and Dairy : How it is affecting your Energy

Inflammation and Dairy : How it is affecting your Energy 

 

Inspired by Mind Body Green(1)

Dairy is a food group that many of us a lot in our diet. However, did you know that American dairy causes harmful inflammation to the body, preventing proper nutrition absorption or fat loss from occurring, and for some people causing energy crashes? These are only a few side effects that affects so much of the American population.

 

Why are so many people sensitive? Two reasons. Number 1: It’s because of the sugars in milk, better known as lactose! The sugar in general is inflammatory but many people do not have enough of the enzyme lactase to break down lactose into an absorbable form. After the age of 4 our bodies naturally get rid of lactase as it is an age where the majority of kids have stopped breastfeeding for a while.

Number 2: the processing and pasteurization process creates a safer, yet refined (processed) version, that of which the body can...
