Type of food linked to increase in work performance
An apple a day may keep the doctor away, and then some!
According to a recent study, increasing your intake of fruits and vegetables can significantly improve your happiness levels.
Researchers found jumping from consuming no fruit and vegetables per day to eight servings per day could seriously boost one's well-being. The results were so drastic, they were compared to how an unemployed person would feel after getting a job.
Previous studies also indicate people's mood and efficiency greatly improves when working out before or during the workday.
People who built exercise into their work showed improved concentration, problem-solving, and proved to be more even tempered.

It isn't just fruits and veggies that can fuel efficiency.
Another strategy to boost work performance is to watch a funny video and/or have a snack!
According to scientists at the University of Warwick, eating chocolate and watching funny videos boosted worker productivity by 12 percent.
So, a combination of fruits, veggies, a little chocolate and a cat video may be the key to getting that promotion you always wanted.
That's some work ethic I could get on board with.
