WOW Headlines:

There is a lot going on in the world of wellness (WOW) and it’s impossible to keep up. We searched the internet for interesting things and our favorites of the day.

Ready, set, go (insert Mario Kart start sound effect):

Feeling Hangry?

Remember the Snickers commercial "You're not you when you're hungry?" 

Betty White (the real MVP) plays the football player (Mike) who is sucking. A girl brings him a Snickers and Mike is back in the game.

The message? Hunger can impact your mood and behavior -a genius marketing play BTW.

If you find yourself getting “hangry,” take a step back and realize it's your hunger turning into an emotion.

Research shows having awareness can significantly reduce your irritability. “-Your loved ones will thank you.

Instead of grabbing a Snickers, be aware and find yourself some protein.

Let's do our part and tame our hangry-ness.

When to Choose Sleep Over a Morning Sweat Session

Your alarm goes off. You hit the snooze. As you go in and out of sleep, you keep thinking that you should get up and get your workout in but man you didn’t sleep well.

Well, maybe that sleep isn't so bad.

Waking up early to get a workout in without enough sleep could do more harm than good.

No, this isn't an excuse to skip working out.

Yes, I know you won't always get a solid 7.

If you always feel tired, try hitting the snooze and squeeze in your movement throughout the day.

When you get crappy sleep, strength and endurance can decline up to 8%.

The bottom line both sleep and exercise are important.

But depriving yourself of sleep to get your workout in isn't a long-term solution.

Try squeezing in three 10-minute workouts throughout the day if you need extra sleep.

Did You Know? Like Really Know…

A 2020 study found if you swap your cereal and OJ for eggs, you'll consume 15% fewer calories for lunch.

Think about it.

Eggs have a lot more protein than cereal and OJ (without the massive blood sugar spike too).

Protein helps keep you feeling full longer. It slows down digestion and releases the fullness hormone.

The only question left to ask is...

How do you like your eggs?
