Certain nutrients and foods can alter your mood in a particular way, almost immediately after you consume them. Adjust your focus and clear your mind by eating a salad or smoothie filled with leafy greens to boost mental clarity.

Career + Finance + Tech

The main thing you need to keep in mind before investing your money is whether or not the investment firm you want to work with is a fiduciary. A fiduciary is a person — think accountant or financial advisor — who acts on behalf of another person to make decisions for them. They’re ethically bound to work in the best interests of that person and their finances. Before you let anyone manage your money — ask if they’re a fiduciary. [Swirled]
