Skipping breakfast might save you time, but it’s not saving you anything else. Turns out eating that first meal of the day is actually useful for your body AND your mind.

Among the many reasons you shouldn’t skip it, eating breakfast can actually make you smarter. Here are three reasons why you shouldn’t skip breakfast.

1. Glucose is simple sugar used as an energy source in our body, and without enough glucose, your body can’t perform regular functions as well, or sometimes at all. So, eating breakfast gives you the initial boost of glucose you need to start your day, but that’s not all.

2. A 16-year-long study by the Harvard School of Public Health found people who said they skipped breakfast regularly were more susceptible to heart attacks or death from coronary heart disease.

3. Even in people without diabetes, breakfast can have a pretty big impact on your blood sugar.
After a healthy breakfast your blood sugar increases a little bit, but it will take a while for your body to absorb it, so you might not be hungry for lunch for 5 hours.

Eating breakfast isn’t just preventative, it can also help you do more stuff. In a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, people who ate breakfast were more physically active during the morning than people who didn’t.

So take the extra few minutes to prep yourself a healthy, easy-to-eat breakfast. Your body will thank you.
