Lots of people suffer from a lack of motivation and for all sorts of reasons, especially at this time of year when there the hours of daylight are starting to dwindle. If you are looking for simple things to try when it comes to getting your motivation back for work, read on as we share a few pick me up ideas to help you get back in the groove.
Get a boost with a juice
A freshly made juice is the fastest way to get mood-boosting nutrition into the body. Juices are packed with phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals, and are very easy for the body to absorb, which means they can nourish and repair cells quickly. Alkaline-rich juices are also the perfect antidote to the modern acidic diet, which can negatively affect hormone levels.
If you want a quick way to change how you feel and help counter those feelings of no work motivation, grabbing a juice can work wonders. A fresh juice is a great way to start the day, boost energy levels and improve the mood.
At Rathbone Square, we’re lucky enough to have our very own resident juice bar in the shape of Joe and the Juice, where you’ll find a tempting range of pick me up juices, as well as healthy salads and tempting shakes.
Get your day off to an inspired start with Joe’s Green Mile, a delicious blend of apple, avocado, broccoli, ice, lemon and spinach, or for the perfect midweek motivation, try Herb Tonic, a fusion of apple, ginger, ice, pepper, pineapple, red bell pepper and turmeric.
At Joe’s, you’ll also find a host of sweet treats, from carrot cake to banana bread and blueberry muffins, and a selection of sandwiches, including the famous Club, packed with chicken, tomato, pesto and avocado. No work motivation? Overturn that feeling with a visit to Joe’s!
Shake off the blues
Did you know that certain protein shakes support brain function and can boost your physical and mental strength? Selected ingredients can also improve memory and ward off all sorts of mental disorders, enhancing alertness and increasing focus.
