A few months ago I posted about finally clueing in to the fact that, especially since I'm self-employed, I am the factory that produces my career. That means that things like my diet and the exercise I get have a direct effect on what I am able to create, because they are the source of energy (or lack of it) that powers that factory.
I started looking more seriously at my diet, and how it was (or more typically, wasn't) fueling the work that I do. Historically, my dietary habits have never been especially good. I could go weeks without tasting a vegetable and tended to reach for the easiest option (inevitably a bowl of cereal).
I started looking at that more carefully when I started thinking of my body as my career's factory. Obviously neglecting to give it the kind of fuel it needed to function optimally had to have a negative impact on what I could do with my days.
I've gotten better since then (though there's still plenty of room for improvement), and I notice a big difference when my diet is on track vs. when it falls back into the junk rut. The healthier my food habits, the more energy I have to put into creating the results I want.
It's in light of all that that this article caught my attention: 10 secrets to eating enough fruits and veggies.
How about you? How is your diet? Are you giving your career factory the energy it needs?
