2 Be Happy and Healthy Our brains ab­sorb 20 per cent of the nu­tri­ents within our food, so to boost your bonce you need to make sure you’re eat­ing the good stuff – a whole­wheat muf­fin with peanut but­ter for break­fast will keep you fo­cused all morn­ing.

3 Sweet Dreams As if we needed an­other ex­cuse for a nap! It turns out sleep is great for your brain as it’s the time when your body gets to shut off, re­cover and re­gen­er­ate im­por­tant cells. Stud­ies show that short pe­ri­ods of shut-eye (that last be­tween six and 10 min­utes) can make you feel more awake and im­prove per­for­mance at work. So tell that to your boss next time you’re found snooz­ing in the staff room...
