This just in: Don’t skip breakfast!
Despite what parents and doctors have long recommended, many Americans begin their days with little more than a cup of tea or coffee, and in some cases with nothing at all.
That may seem like a good way to save time or money, but a morning without breakfast will probably cost you in other ways.
Over the years, a number of studies have examined the subject, and most have reached the same conclusion: starting a day without a solid meal tends to have slight but detectable effects on mood, memory and energy level.
I find it interesting that coffee drinkers still didn’t do as well on mental skills tests as those who eat breakfast. So the best way to be alert and awake through the work day is to have a good breakfast and drink a cup of coffee!
