Diet for Confidence

Health and wellness are an important part of Cydcor company culture.  We value our team and want them to the be the best fleet of sales people in the business.  We also want Cydcor team members to feel like their best selves.

Confidence and good moods are key building successful sales relationships.  There are some good personal exercises to build confidence, but the best practice for mood boosting is to incorporate foods that will energize and provide balance.  We all know nutrition and exercise play a huge role in our overall health, but did you know that eating for good moods is possible as well?

Getting essential nutrients like B vitamins, magnesium, antioxidants and omega fats are great for feeling good and getting out into the world.  While they may not provide super powers right away, some great foods to keep on hand might just give that competitive edge in the world of sales.

Avocados are high in fiber, vitamin K, and folic acid.  Fiber and the healthy fat in an avocado will make you feel invigorated and full.  Vitamin K keeps your skin fresh and bright, and folic acid is helpful for mood boosting.  These green fruits are ideal for bringing out your best self.


Hazelnuts are also rich in fiber and good fats, but their secret ingredient is their high magnesium level.  Magnesium helps to keep stress levels low by regulating blood pressure and helping with calcium absorption.  It can also help regulate heart beats.


Eggs are an excellent source of choline, protein and omega-3 fats.  Choline is a micronutrient that helps to regulate the brain.  They are also one of the few foods that contains vitamin D, which helps fight against depression and ward off disease.


What are your power up foods to get you ready for the sales floor?
