Magni cares about the health of its operators and knows that “we are what we eat”, as a famous German philosopher used to say. Despite the arrival of summer, you need to pay attention to your diet in order to keep your concentration and energy at an all-time high. Here are some practical tips for a “a healthy mind in a satiated body”!
Without proper nutrition, working days can be tough, especially the first really hot ones of the year. Our body struggles to handle great stress caused by high temperatures. This affects our work performance, which already requires a great deal of effort and constant attention.
Thus, irritability, concentration difficulties and insomnia arise. These must be carefully avoided in order to stay fit and vital at work.
When it gets hot, the basic rule is to drink a lot of water to keep your body hydrated even before you feel thirsty, which is the first sign of dehydration. Moreover, besides providing water, consuming many fresh fruits and vegetables provides the essential minerals and vitamins to keep all our vital functions going.
A balanced distribution of nutrients should allow us to reach a total daily calorie intake that is equivalent to our energy requirement, i.e., the energy we need when we are at rest or carry out activities. Low-calorie diet means taking in fewer calories than you need, while a normal-calorie diet stands for a normal intake of calories that meets your needs.
Magni operators and all those who work on construction sites have to work in all weather conditions. Thus, we would like to give you some tips to help you get through the hottest days:
- Never skip breakfast. It is the main meal of the day. Drinking a fresh fruit smoothie, or eating nuts and a whole meal toast with ham is the best way to start your day full of energy;
- At lunchtime, the secret lies in combining the three macro nutrients in your meal: proteins, carbohydrates and fats. The ideal would be to eat fresh, low-fat food, such as a caprese with mozzarella and tomato, prosciutto and melon with some slices of whole meal bread, a rice or cereal salad dressed with tuna and vegetables, a mixed vegetable salad with boiled eggs, grilled chicken and whole meal croutons.
- Chewing your food slowly helps you feel full. If you chew quickly, you risk eating more than your natural hunger requires. Moreover, if you don’t grind your food well, it will be harder to digest, making you feel bloated during digestion.
Last but not least, appropriate clothing with breathable and soft fabrics in the best colors, can also help to disperse excessive heat, feel cooler and control excessive sweating. Therefore, we recommend that you take a look in our online store. You will find practical solutions that will help you on hot days.
