Top foods to have an efficient meeting
An efficient meeting requires your mind to be clear, focused and alert. Eating the right type of food can not only keep your stomach happy, but also allow you to be more productive.
Brain foodsSome foods have a reputation for increasing brain power. A mix of blueberries, pumpkin seeds and mixed nuts may assist you here. Research conducted at Tufts University in the United States suggests that blueberries can improve short-term memory loss. Zinc is vital for cognitive skills. A handy source of zinc is pumpkin seeds, which may improve your thinking skills. The American Journal of Epidemiology found that vitamin E can prevent cognitive decline, especially in the elderly. Nuts are a good source of vitamin E.
Energy foodsFoods that increase your energy can keep you active and alert as the meeting goes on. Many meetings are fuelled by the stimulant caffeine in the form of coffee, but it’s also important to stay hydrated and plain water is best for this. Trail mix, with its combination of seeds, nuts and dried fruit, is a high fibre snack that breaks down into glucose to provide bursts of energy. Guarana is a small round red fruit that has stimulating properties. It is difficult to find fresh, but can be bought from health food stores in powder form that can be stirred into drinks to provide an energy boost. Another source of energy is goji berries. They ‘re used in Chinese medicine to improve mood, mind and memory. To make your meeting successful as well as focused, hold it in one of our meeting rooms at a Hallmark Hotel.
