It is a common observation that people feel hunger at work. In doing certain work, your energy is being used and human being gets energy only from food. When you consume you energy during any work, you feel hunger. But you might be thinking that what to do when you are hungry at work. The solution is very simple. I would suggest you some simple things that you can do to satiate your hunger.
During work, no one has enough time to go for special meal despite in the break hours. Maybe you cannot concentrate on your work for thinking about food. The office can be hard place to navigate when you are hungry. During work, feel hungry is a natural thing. To overcome this problem, you must keep some snacks and baked items on your working table. Snacking is not bad. But it is worse as it increases the calories too. So try dry fruits, raw veggies, hummus, nuts, sliced apples and peanut butter. Sometimes you feel thirsty but you think you are hungry. The body cannot tell the difference between hunger and thirst so I must suggest you to turn to a glass of water or unsweetened iced coffee instead of popping open to potato chips. Water fills you up. It is important for you to keep a water bottle with you all the time. If you are bored of water, add some slices of lemon lime or mint that will keep you fresh.
Never skip lunch. In every office, employers have the opportunity of half time break. Keep a water bottle with you. It will help you to feel hungry at the time of lunch. Lunch will help you to energize your mind and body. If you are feeling over burdened and stressed then you should avoid fast food and look for a lean protein and healthy food which will fuel rest of your body. Try fruit salad and peanut or almond butter.
You can also have a cup of tea or coffee that will recharge you and boost your energy to do work more efficiently. In fact, you can drink up to 4 to 5 cups of tea a day. If you drink green tea, it’s even better. It is a good trick to reduce your lunch or dinner proportion. Having green tea will help in burning fat, if you drink it regularly.
A sugarless gum will keep your mouth busy and you will not feel hunger during work. If you are dieing of hunger put something in your mouth to chew. Chewing a piece of gum can actually make you feel hunger. So I must recommend you to have a gum before the lunch time.
If you have nothing to eat during work and feeling hungry then you must indulge yourself in other activities like you can talk with your colleague and it will take away your focus on hunger for a while. Sitting for hours is boring and it also makes your muscles feel stiff. For many people, eating seems like a good solution when there is nothing better to do. So it is important to keep yourself busy in other activities.
