Are Healthier People Smarter?

Updated on October 19, 2011

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day according to many, but does the way you live really affect your ability to learn and perform? Athletes in schools get better grades; make friends easier, even get sick less. The more mentally and physically ready you are for life the easier it is to learn, in turn making you smarter.

According to experts, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and affects the rest of your day. It can make you more attentive in class or work for you are not thinking about food and your body has the “gas” it needs to operate. In addition, you jump start your metabolism storing less fat and burning more calories. Healthier meals and snacks lead to wait loss and an increase in your health. The more tired and stressed you are the harder it is to pay attention in class and learn new things. Exercise releases stress, less stress means you can focus on the important things. Another factor in your health is sleep. The amount of sleep each person needs is different based on their age and gender. Getting the proper amount of sleep also increases your health and your attention span.

By getting the right amount of sleep, eating nutrition packed meals and exercising you have the ability to increase your health and how well and easily you lean. Health problems increase with bad addicting habits like smoking and drinking. If your health is bad or your immune system is weak you get sick easier and miss more school. Missing more school results in the student getting behind and causing them to have to make up work, we all know its hard to catch up once you have fallen behind.

Keeping yourself healthier by eating right, exercising and avoiding the bad habits is important to your future. Just by joining a sport, eating breakfast, and/or eating healthier meals you increase your chance in reaching your dream. Being healthier can help you learn better and make you smarter. If you don’t take care of yourself, no one else will.
