    Just like working out can keep your body in good shape, stretching your brain can keep it razor sharp. Doing them together has an added benefit. Scientists say that working the body and the mind at the same time revitalizes our brain cells. So, fill-out a crossword puzzle while riding a stationary bike, or listen to language lessons on your iPod while on the treadmill. If you don’t like multi-tasking, do a crossword right after the gym, when you’re energized. It'll have the same benefits.

Did you know if you're having trouble sleeping you should wear looser PJs? When pajamas are too tight, they trap heat - making us warmer. But we need to lower our body temperature to trigger our sleep hormones. So if air can circulate in loose pajamas, it'll cool your core temperature, and your brain will pump out more sleep-inducing melatonin. #pjs #sleep #health #teshtips #IFYL

Put cinnamon in your hot chocolate! According to new research in the International Journal of Preventative Medicine, we should be doing that all year long. Why? Because adding a spoonful of cinnamon to hot chocolate, a latté, or our morning oatmeal, is one of the best ways to lower blood pressure, and help keep our cholesterol and blood sugar in check! #fall #IFYL #teshtips #hotchocolate #nom #cinnamon

Did you know that when it comes to shaking hands, knowing when to let go is as important as the handshake itself? Researchers at the University of Manchester in England studied this - and found that the ideal handshake to convey trust, control and confidence lasts 3 seconds. Pulling away too early is a sign of weakness and insecurity. Holding on for longer than 3 seconds is seen as overbearing and makes the other person uncomfortable. #cute #kittens #handshake #etiquette www.tesh.com

Take a moment in the morning! A new study shows you shouldn't make important decisions until you've been awake for at least 2 hours. This is according to a study in the Journal of American Medical Association...It found that our memory is more impaired right when we wake up, than if we hadn't slept in 24 hours! And researchers say it's because the part of the brain responsible for problem solving takes longer to 'wake up' than the rest of the brain...

Here's the #1 trick for boosting your happiness: Once a week, write down five things you're grateful for. According to the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, people who kept a "gratitude diary" for 9 weeks felt happier and healthier, and even exercised more.

You should actually use your turn signal when changing lanes, EVEN when there are no other cars around to see you. Experts say when you do that, it helps create muscle memory - so you'll automatically reach for the turn signal even when you're distracted, or tired, for example. And that's important because surveys show that half of all drivers don't use a turn signal before changing lanes...And that's one of the leading causes of accidents! #teshtips #meme

Put some flowers on your nightstand - or in the bathroom - when you get ready in the morning. Research shows that we feel better and more energized when we see a bouquet first thing in the morning. And that energy lasts through the day. That's according to Harvard Research. www.tesh.com
