Health Benefits Of Drinking (A Lot Of) Water

Hungry? Tired? Hazy?

It might be due to the amount (or lack of) water you’ve consumed today.

Why? Your brain is strongly influenced by hydration status. And studies show that even mild dehydration (1-3% of body weight) can impair energy levels and mood, and lead to major reductions in memory and brain performance.

Not to mention it can increase satiety and boost your metabolic rate, thus helping control your cravings and keeping your body at a healthy weight. In fact, drinking just 2 liters of water every day can increase your total energy expenditure by up to 96 calories per day!

All of this said, we understand it isn’t always easy to fit glasses of water into your daily routine. Especially if you are a commuter, or just always on the run. We suggest that you start by forming a routine that’s easy to stick to. For example, invest in a 1L water bottle and commit to filling it every morning before you leave for work. Try to finish it by lunch, and then refill. Wa-la! 2L in one day. Not so hard, right?

Whatever way you do it, we suggest working water into your daily life. You will thank us later!

How Do Songs Get Stuck In Our Heads?

Let’s be real - Justin Beiber has had a phenomenal year.

But his cute face and catchy lyrics aren’t the only reason his anthems are stuck in the back of your head 99% of the time. It’s called an earworm. And it’s not a bug.

An earworm is an 8 second fragment, or "often a bit of the chorus of the song, that just plays and replays like it’s stuck on loop in your head,” - Elizabeth Margulis, Director of the Music Cognition Lab at the University of Arkansas.

Once an earworm makes it’s way into your psyche, how do you get rid of it?

What You Eat vs. How You Sleep

We’ve all heard the saying “You are what you eat.” But, what about “You sleep what you eat?!”

A new study found:

1. Eating less fiber, more saturated fat and more sugar = lighter, less restorative, and more disrupted sleep
2. Greater fiber intake = more time spent in the stage of deep, slow wave sleep
3. A higher percentage of energy from saturated fat = less slow wave sleep
4. Greater sugar intake = more arousals from sleep

Surprised? You shouldn’t be!

Turns out your veggie-loving mother was right. What we eat has a drastic impact on everything from how we think and feel to how well we sleep.

Cauliflower: Underrated Brain Food?

It’s funny how some foods just look like they should be good for your brain, because they kind of resemble it!

Cauliflower is a great source of choline, a B vitamin known for it's role in brain development. Choline may also boost cognitive function and improve learning and memory. It may even diminish age-related memory decline and your brain's vulnerability to toxins during childhood, as well as conferring protection later in life.

It also contains a solid amount of vitamin K, which is said to keep your mind sharp as you age and boost memory, as well as folate. It also helps in liver detoxification, which directly impacts the brain.
