Winter is almost over but you may still feel tired, run down, and possibly even sick at times. These effects might not be due to Daylight Savings Time, which recently took effect this year. After all, you may be constantly taking cough drops or blowing your nose. Starting your day one hour earlier would not cause these symptoms. However, they may be due to a simple nutritional deficiency, which is causing you to experience Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).
SAD most often occurs during the colder winter months. Also known as winter depression, SAD is caused by the decreased amount of sun and Vitamin D that you receive during the winter, in contrast to the summer months when the sun is shining and you are out basking under its rays more. During the colder, darker months, we tend to stay indoors more and when we do go out for our daily dose of all-natural Vitamin D, the sun is not shining as brightly due to the cloud cover.
Luckily, SAD is not a serious, long-term deficiency. Nevertheless, it is a short-term concern, especially for corporations and businesses that want to be function as ergonomically as possible. Your employees may be affected by SAD, which can have negative repercussions on their work and productivity in the office.
Those affected by SAD may feel moody, gain weight, have trouble concentrating, or feel tired. Enjoying nutritiously dense food will help your employees conquer their symptoms of SAD easily and deliciously. Fight the winter blues with corporate catering this year. By increasing worker productivity and morale, you can increase your revenues and profit many times over as a result.

The Standard Option
The first corporate package you can order includes a soup or salad, sandwich, a drink, and your option of a dessert or fresh fruit with each meal. A minimum order of 10 meals applies. This is a winning nutritional formula for success for businesses of any size of employment. Whether your business is a small start-up or a multi-national corporation, you can afford healthy, nutritious food for your staff members, to ensure they are as productive as possible during the workday. The nutrients, mineral, and vitamins your staff members receive from this nutritious, delicious food will help them stay focused and productive on the task at hand.
SAD is, in some ways, a nutritional disorder because it can be prevented if you simply eat nutritious food. However, not many people have the time to shop, prepare, or make their lunches every day. As a result, it is commonplace to find a long line for the vending machines, or for your employees to head to his or her favorite fast food places during his or her limited lunch break. These poor nutritional choices, day after day, degrade our bodies and lead to issues like SAD. Help your employees make the right choice with corporate catering today!
The “Gourmet” Option
The difference between the “gourmet” option and the first “standard” option depends on whether or not you want a gourmet sandwich or a regular one. If it matters to you and you would like a gourmet sandwich, choose this option. Regardless of the sandwich chosen, the nutritional value each option provides cannot be underestimated. Both options provide nutrition which can help fight the winter blues.
