Study: The“Sugar Rush” Is A Myth -If you try and get a boost during your day from a burst of sugar, don’t bother. It turns out that sugar rush doesn’t exist.
Sugary snacks and desserts may put a smile on people's faces, but a new study says the sugar in those foods doesn't actually improve their mood. Researchers from three European universities looked at whether a "sugar rush" could really brighten people's moods.
They found that if anything, the reverse is true. Their study says sugar has virtually no effect on mood, and there is no rush, no matter how much is consumed. In fact, test subjects who consumed sugar were more tired than those who didn't. As far as being more happy… not going to happen.
If you need a boost during the day, grab some protein instead.
Young Couples Are Signing More Prenups Than Ever
We all want to believe in the “happily ever after” fairytale love story, right? Of course! But that’s not always the way things go. #shockingnotshocking Maybe it’s because we’ve seen what our parents’ generation went through with half of all marriages ending in divorce…maybe it’s because we see all these crazy fights over stuff when celebs split. Either way, millennials are choosing to get prenups at a record rate.
Why? A few reasons.
· For one, couples are now waiting a few years later to actually bite that “forever” bullet. The average couple is now getting married at age 29 (versus 27 just a few years ago). The older we are, the more assets we have to protect.
· Another consideration is that our generation is the one that entered the workforce during the 2008 recession. We know how tough it is to carve something out of nothing and therefore we have an interest in protecting what assets we’ve already gotten for ourselves.
Look, I know this isn’t the love story that sappy movies want you to believe, but we should totally give ourselves major props for being SMART about life decisions. A prenup makes perfect sense and protects our future. It’s fine to build together as a couple, but you also need to look out for number one. I bet most of our parents wish they had been as bold.
