The 4 eating habits you need to stimulate your thinkingThe 4 eating habits you need to stimulate your thinking


The ability to think clearly is the most important thing when you run a company or organization. Although you may not get the attention you deserve at times, the choice of foods you eat all day affects your thinking and determines whether you can make important decisions when necessary.

There is no magic pill that makes you a critical thinker. However, you can make some changes to your diet that improve your brain’s health and optimize your mindset. I learned that the hard way through trial and error. Now, as a full-time entrepreneur, I have managed to change my diet and do things better regardless of the challenges I face.

1. Drink coffee, but not too much

Caffeine can wake you up, but it doesn’t give you much energy. In fact, it is a drug, a stimulant, that has been shown to increase your ability to think and pay attention.

Most studies on the effects of caffeine say that we can drink at most one or two cups. If you take more than that, you won’t be able to think the same. A lot of caffeine is associated with fear and inconsistent thinking and speaking.

If you drink several cups of coffee in the morning, you should eat something at the same time and stop after two cups. I prefer to drink green juice (a mixture of dark leaves, cucumber, celery, lemon and ginger), which is very stimulating. Try it!

2. Let the “sugar bowl”

If you eat muesli with some orange juice in the morning, you are abusing the amount of sugar. After the effect wears off, your thinking ability may decrease dramatically.

This is because carbohydrates are digested quickly, which increases your glucose level and energy and then you fall like stone.

To combat this, it is best to limit your diet to sugary foods that train your body to ask about healthier foods. Make sure you combine the sugar with some protein and fiber.

The first promotes digestion and protects you from an increase in blood sugar. Dietary fiber also helps reduce the sugar level in your system.

It’s a good idea to make sure that every meal contains some fiber such as vegetables and fruits.

3. Bet on nuts

Seeds and nuts have been shown to help the brain stay in shape. They are a source of vitamin E, which is associated with less cognitive decline. Walnuts increase the ability to think inferentially and critically. Not only are they delicious, they are also a good “snack” that you can pack and take anywhere. Don’t be afraid of fat, it will eliminate the feeling of hunger and help you stay focused for hours.

4. Don’t overdo it

Exaggeration in life – whether work, sleep or exercise – can backfire. Especially if you go overboard with a big lunch before a big project, this can prevent you from thinking clearly. When you eat a lot, the blood flow to the brain decreases. Avoid skipping meals, eat what is necessary, slow down, and stop when you feel full.
