Leptin, a hormone produced by fat cells that helps regulate appetite, has long been touted as a possible treatment for obesity. Now, researchers believe that it may also reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. A 12-year study of 200 volunteers found that those with the lowest levels of the hormone were more likely to develop the disease than those with the highest levels. Furthermore, research on mice found that those that received doses of leptin were more adept at navigating a maze.
TIP OF THE DAY
How to Stay Awake at Work in 5 Steps
If can be difficult to stay awake at work—especially if your job is grueling and painfully slow. Since you probably can’t change the amount of time you have to work, or how boring your job may be, you need to find ways to stay awake. While I can’t make your job any more exciting, these steps will help you stay awake at work.
1. Step 1
Avoid sugar and caffeine. Don’t rely on sugar or caffeine to stay awake at work. These are nice stimulants but after a few minutes will wear off and leave you lower than where you started. Instead, eat healthy foods to give you energy and keep you working. Eating healthy foods and avoiding sugar and caffeine will help you stay awake at work.
2. Step 2
Listen to Music. If you avoid sugar and caffeine and still struggle to stay awake at work, ask your boss if you can listen to music at work. Listening to music you like can help you stay awake at work. Loud upbeat music can do a world of good keeping your eyes open in the workplace.
3. Step 3
Don’t let yourself get too comfortable. You’re not going to stay awake at work if you’re reclined in a nice soft warm chair. So sit in an odd position that keeps you awake and alert. Don’t set your arms on the desk and forget about them, keep your body moving. If you can, get up and walk around every few minutes. Stay awake at work by keeping your body active.
4. Step 4
Open a window. One of the best ways to stay awake at work is to open up a window in the office (if you can). Your body has an internal clock that is programmed to get drowsy in dim lighting—inside the office. If you can’t crack open a window, look at your computer screen or another bright light. The bright light will trigger your brain to stay alert and help you stay awake at work.
5. Step 5
Use Sweet scents. If you find it hard to stay awake at work, try sniffing something potent. Bring a small candle or something to work with you and when you begin to fall asleep take a whiff. Mint, pine, coffee, and other strong scents will help you stay awake at work. Plug something into the wall, or bring mint in a bag and give it a whiff when it gets tough to stay awake at work.
