Stimulate Your Brain WaterA recent British study revealed that people who drank three cups of water with breakfast in the morning scored better on tests that measured reaction time than did the test takers who skipped drinking water.  The researchers aren't quite sure how hydration affects the brain, and think it may be simply that thirst distracts a person, which makes it difficult to focus.  People who drink coffee and tea in the mornings seem to get the same benefit, since these drinks include water.  So, if you are a parent of a child who doesn't like to eat breakfast in the morning, you could do them a huge favor by insisting they at least drink some water before heading out to school.  Chug-a-lug everybody!
