Icebreaker: Punch line

Icebreakers are little exercises that help relax tension and loosen up a formal atmosphere in a meeting where you want to have creative ideas and group participation.

This icebreaker will have everyone laughing:

Break everyone up into small groups of 2 or 3. Give each group a made-up punchline. Each group now has 5 minutes to come up with a joke or story that uses that punchline at the end. The crazier the better! Here are some example punchlines:

1. And that is why you never let a cat go fishing!
2. That proves that elephants don't like hot dogs.
3. Finally he said, "Sir, your computer doesn't have a cigarette lighter."
4. The moral of the story is, "Always wear socks!"

Smart People Diets

What you eat can have a large impact on how your mind operates. After all, the brain accounts for 20% of your body's total energy consumption. The brain needs a steady supply of glucose throughout the day to keep in tip-top working order, so be sure to not skip any meals, especially breakfast.

Salads contain antioxidants such as beta-carotene and vitamins C and E, which help your brain stay healthy.

Yogurt contains the amino acid tyrosine, which is needed for some essential brain chemistry.

Fish contains Omega-3 fatty acids, which help prevent dementia and keep your brain working in tip-top shape.

Curry contains a spice called turmeric which can help prevent Alzheimer's Disease.

Try to avoid junk food high in sugar and fat. There have been some studies that imply a connection between junk food and mental disorders such as dyslexia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and autism.
