Dark chocolate helped me in an unexpected way. But it can help all of us in many ways. My experience is a bit out of the ordinary and not nearly as important as what you will read below. Nevertheless, I do a one man play about F. Scott Fitzgerald. The non stop show and the following Q&A session run about an hour and a half. It takes a lot energy. Just coincidentally I ran across an article about researchers who were studying college students up most of the night cramming for finals. Eventually they were worn down, not thinking clearly and very sleepy. So the researchers gave them each two dark chocolate candy bars. They snapped right out of their lethargy and roared on with the cramming. Well, I thought, I’ll try that. Before each performance I chomped away on two dark chocolate bars and Bingo, I was sharp as a tack for the entire event. Now please understand I’m not recommending that you eat two dark chocolate bars a day or even at any one time! I don’t do the show every day. I’m just saying that I’m now a fan of dark chocolate. So, at Seniors About Seniors we felt you might enjoy Kristen Mancinelli’s article on the subject.
