Too many daily chores or doing efforts to strike a balance in work and home life – I get through this now and then, especially after becoming a mother. Things go out of my hands at times. One moment, I find myself in the kitchen and the other moment, sorting my to-do list at the back of my mind. It has been most of the working women’s lives.
That’s common, and we all are aware of it. But, is it that obvious to know that this deteriorates our memory power or skill to multitask with time!?
No question, you are doing a fab job, fighting all through the morning till you go back to bed with a max of the tasks done righteously. But does that make you forget things often? Or may be this leads you to ask why I forget things so often ..
A new Stanford study says, “Doing too many things at the same time — multitasking — reduces working memory.
So let’s face it that if you got to do it, do it more smartly and least believe in any multi-magic.
Talk to a dietician or maybe rescheduling what you eat yourself (if you know!).
Let me help you with this!!
- Get a personalized diet plan based on the sort of work you do. It has a thumb rule to figure out your ideal weight.
- Measure your height in centimetres and subtract 100 from it. Now, multiply this number (weight) with 300 to get a rough idea of how many calories you need a day.
- Plan your diet in a way that you get all these calories from nutritious food while avoiding food loaded with empty calories (such as French fries, cola, or samosas). (well, save a cheat day for you!)
Include these food items in your diet to protect your brain:
