Brain food

We all know that eating well is important for our overall health, but, did you know it’s also important for your work?

This weekend I was reminded how important it is for me to leave the chocolate alone and make sure to eat my veggies (boring, but important), like the beautiful salad below, made by Living Sky Café in Saskatoon.

Friday night, I completely forgot to take my son to his Taekwondo class. Saturday night I forgot to edit and post my kids’ YouTube video. I tell ya, I wasn’t earning a lot of mommy points this weekend!

Luckily my memory lapses were minor…this time. It could have easily been a forgotten assignment that a client needed. Or forgetting to make a payment on time.

Remember what the Flight Attendants always say, place the oxygen mask on yourself first so you can help others. In other words, take care of yourself, so you have the energy and alertness to do whatchya gotta do.

It’s a lot easier to stuff some healthy foods in your face instead of facing the consequences of stupid (avoidable) mistakes.

Take care!
