I came across this book by Esme Floyd called 1001 little health miracles which contains many little health gems, based on current scientific evidence, to help one stay happy and healthy. Here are a few of my favorites from the book:
Calories – Wrap It Up
Did you know you can use up 100 calories an hour wrapping presents? What a perfect excuse to buy gifts!
Brain Power – Bananas On The Brain
The glucose released into the bloodstream from carbohydrates is the brain’s favourite food, and the slower and steadier it’s released, the better. Bananas, apples, porridge and stoneground bread are all good snacks.
Sleep – Hold Your Tongue (it works!)
Experts suggest that you try this clever sleep trick to help you drop off: close your eyes and hold your tongue so it’s not touching your cheeks or the roof of your mouth, as if you’re yawning with your mouth closed. You’ll be sleeping like a log in no time.
