Hopped up on sweets from last nights trick-or-treat
extravaganza? Today (and the two weeks that follow) don’t have to be a cycle of
sugary highs and lows. Here’s how to beat the crash before you feel the least
Step 1: Drink up!
Uh, no, not the super caffeinated stuff or calorie-packed
sodas. Instead, opt for the original hydrator: H2O. Tote around a water bottle

latter. Here’s why: Sure, the candy bar is packed with sugar, but it’s not
100-percent sugar and corn syrup. The peanuts offer up some protein, which
gives you legit energy that won’t burn you out.
Step 3: Get moving

math class or volunteering to run a file down to the front office, will help
clear your head and keep the rest of you awake and processing the information
teach is preaching. Phew!
