A recent study finds that unhealthy eating behaviors at night can make people less helpful and more withdrawn the next day at work.
“For the first time, we have shown that healthy eating immediately affects our workplace behaviors and performance,” says Seonghee “Sophia” Cho, corresponding author of the study and an assistant professor of psychology at North Carolina State University. “It is relatively well established that other health-related behaviors, such as sleep and exercise, affect our work. But nobody had looked at the short-term effects of unhealthy eating.”
The study, is published in the Journal of Applied Psychology.
