The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Body and Soul - - Health - – LIZ

How are you do­ing on your res­o­lu­tions so far? If you feel like you’re al­ready wob­bling a bit, that’s OK. We’re here to give you all the mo­ti­va­tion you need to get right back on the well­be­ing horse with our Ready Re­set Go se­ries in Jan­uary.

This week, it’s all about smarter health. We kick things off with a fun health-IQ quiz that may sur­prise (and stump!) you. From sleep to diet and even den­tal hy­giene, you’ll find out about the lat­est re­search that could help change your habits this year.

If you’ve had a boozy New Year and have re­solved to change your re­la­tion­ship with al­co­hol in 2019, our fea­ture on smarter drink­ing habits on page 4 is es­sen­tial read­ing. And while you’re at it, you may want to re- eval­u­ate your re­la­tion­ship with your bank ac­count as well. Our story on money per­son­al­i­ties ( page 8) will set you on the right path.

One of the most in­ter­est­ing new ar­eas of smarter health is neu­ronu­tri­tion – how our diet af­fects our brain’s per­for­mance. Re­search has shown that food has the power to al­le­vi­ate symp­toms of de­pres­sion and ward off Alzheimer’s. Check out our fea­ture on page 14 for a list of foods to feed your brain this year.

And in the spirit of # thisyeari­willbe smarter, on page 12 we’ve rounded up the best ed­u­ca­tional hol­i­days that will not only broaden your hori­zons, but sharpen your brain, too. There’s so much to learn!
