EAT WELL by taking time to have breakfast even if it’s on the go try fruit, cereal, yogurt, or an energy bar to get the day started right. Research has found that university students perform better on memory tests when they have eaten breakfast (source: Benton, David & Sargent, Julia, Breakfast, blood glucose and memory, Biological Psychology, 33 (1992) 207-210).
QUIT on MONDAY tip: Have you recently quit smoking cigarettes? Congratulations! It’s not an easy thing to do. Have you noticed when you eat certain foods that the cravings can be worse, depending on what you eat? It’s not in your head, studies have shown that certain foods enhance the craving to light up, especially when those foods were associated with smoking. To keep those cravings at bay, stick to fruits, veggies, soda, or whatever you don’t link to your past smoking habits. For instance, if you used to have a cigarette with your morning coffee, try switching to tea in the mornings.
