12-28-2015 - WHICH IS WORSE...

Sunday, December 28, 2014

Going to bed FULL or HUNGRY?

Skip late-night meals "Having too much food in your belly when you sleep is not only uncomfortable, it can also cause acid reflux," says Rebecca Scott, Ph.D., a sleep specialist and research assistant professor at NYU School of Medicine in NYC. But hitting the sack with an empty stomach isn't a good idea either, since low blood sugar levels can lead to nighttime awakenings. If your stomach is rumbling, have a small snack like almonds or yogurt. The protein will hold you over without disturbing your sleep.

12-27-2014 WHICH IS BETTER...

Saturday, December 27, 2014

Working out when you're sore or taking the day off?

Hit the gym. Though it may seem counterintuitive, exercising with sore muscles actually speeds recovery, says Pat Davidson, Ph.D., director of training methodology at Peak Performance in New York City. But this is not the time for CrossFit: Opt for gentle workouts that boost blood flow, like low-intensity cardio or yoga. This will send restorative oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to your muscles to encourage healing. That said, if you haven't taken a rest day in weeks or are feeling mildly anxious or depressed, take the day off. These are symptoms of overtraining - and that you need a break.

    I agree If I waited until I wasn't sore or in pain. I never would get any workouts done. I do believe in doing light workouts and days off though.

    I get so tired in the winter with the lack of light - and working nights, it's soooo cold in the mornings, and I have to cut my sleep short to walk them before work ... (boo hoo to me)

(Self) Worth

You're BRILLIANT, GORGEOUS, HILARIOUS, AMAZING

Make someone smile.

We all know that paying someone a compliment can brighten their day. Now research shows it can do the same for yours.

When it come to random acts of kindness, there's a surprisingly simple way to maximize the positivity-for both giver and receiver. Researchers from the University of Houston gave some subjects the general goal to "make someone happy," while another group was tasked with the specific directive to "make someone smile." Those with the more specific goal reported the highest increase in happiness: Just giving a small gift, or offering kind words, did the trick. "You're happier when you know you've met your goal," says lead study author Melanie Rudd, Ph.D. "When you're trying to make someone smile, the evidence is right there on a person's face." So flattery can get you everywhere, including your own happy place.

    Even when you make a fake smile, it releases endophins to make you happier (not sure about snarky smiles)
