Breathing, glucose, and the brain


Collage by Lani and textures from FlyPaper
David DiSalvo has a great "how to" article on breathing and the parasympathetic nervous system in Forbes. Lots of research and links there for you but the best is the simple directions about how to use your breathing to help your brain relax.  Find it here.

Another article of his, worth taking a look at, is on how the brain uses glucose to strengthen will-power.  Research shows a little gargling with lemonade will do the trick if you feel yourself flagging.  Seriously.  (Of course your dentist will tell you to brush your teeth right away.)  You can find that one here.
