i just had my handyman come in to do some work on my disposal that was leaking….well, i needed a new disposal. he knows i am a nutritionist, too so he started asking me all sorts of questions and is looking forward to coming to my upcoming workshop on What is the Big Deal About Wheat? and whether one should avoid it. when he was done quicker than i expected, we sat down over tea for more chatter.
he received a text form a client about a missing part – where was it? it needed to be installed. this brought on the topic of making mistakes when not eating right. when we do not balance the blood sugar, we tend to have poor performance from skipping meals. when that blood sugar drops from skipping meals and working thru the job into the next cause we do not have time to eat, then we make more mistakes than we ought to. this is common for business people as well as professionals like handymen. you get paid for doing your work and doing it correctly – not for coming back to fix a mistake. those mistakes happen more frequently when we allow that blood sugar to drop. when that blood sugar is low, the brain has no glucose so it is not working to its full capacity. you cannot concentrate, you have hard time putting words together, you cannot think straight and you make mistakes.
to curb mistakes, we need to balance the blood sugar, but most of all, we need to take the time to eat. in this day and age, we all have cell phones, you can call the client saying you will be late as you need to stop to eat. everyone understands the need to eat. but for some reason, we think work is more important so we skip the eating so we can make our next appointment (hoping to make money). but when you are on that next appointment, were you really able to do your best work? were you able to fully comprehend what the client as to what their needs were? were you able to do the work in a timely fashion? or did you find that you had to redo the work a few times before you got it right? did you have to go back to fix a mistake? that is money out of your pocket if you answered ‘no’!
it might seem like not a big deal, but if you are paid for the work you do, whether in an office environment, front desk, contractor, handyman or repair work, you need to be at your best all the time. you need to take the time to eat, and you need to eat on a regular basis to be able to provide the quality workmanship. you need to learn of what a balance meal consists. if you do not keep that blood sugar balanced, your brain won’t work well and you will have to come back to correct the mistakes you made. if you need help with balancing that blood sugar and knowing what to eat and when, this is where a nutrition professional is helpful. i work with clients on this issue regularly, and will now be working with my handyman to help him get his work done better without mistakes. balance the blood sugar, and you will get paid better!
