Last week we talked about the Daylight Savings and loosing an hour and how that can really affect you sleeping…or really your waking. Being a morning person is something I’ve always aspired to be but can’t seem to truly manage to achieve. As I continue to read lifestyle articles from all sorts of media publications a continual message is that the proverbial early bird gets that worm.
By now we all know the history of Daylight Savings Time. However I can’t be the only one who thinks losing an hour is one of the worst things! It takes me, what feels like, months to get adjusted. As much as I enjoy the longer days, “springing forward” can often put me in a sleep deprivation blur.
Biggest news in health and eating this week seems to be the new 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines that were released last week. Released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Health and Human Services, these guidelines are for the American public to follow and designed to help Americans eat a healthier diet. Although the edition is said to be “intended for health professionals” it does outline how we can improve our overall eating habits for the better.
