Email, it’s worth it… Wrong

From the Hamster Revolution

Email? It’s free. No stamps!” smirked Harold. “We’ll see,” I replied. “How much time do you spend on email each year?” Harold shook his head, “I have no idea. I guess I get about 50 a day and I probably hit the Send button about 25 times.”

I slid a calculator across my desk. “So you send and receive a total of 75 emails per day. Let’s calculate your annual email volume: Multiply your 75 daily emails by 240, which is the number of work days per year. What do you get?”

Fitness Advice You’ll Want to Take

Fitness Advice You’ll Want to Take

There are a lot of voices shouting fitness advice from the rooftops, but not a lot of it that you actually want to follow.

While fitness (and diet, nutrition, sleep — heck, health, for that matter) is incredibly personal, and definitely not “one-size-fits-all”.

Here are seven recommendations you could find pretty easy to accept:

Just Do It For 20 Minutes … while not as effective as 40 minutes of exercise, has been shown to lower body weight and fat, increase fitness and lower potential markers for type 2 diabetes risk.

Take Days Off – There are very good reasons to take time off from training. Over-exercising can mess with everything..

Find A Form Of Fitness You Love – If there’s one surefire way to continue dreading your exercise then don’t do it … instead, find something you truly enjoy!

Stop Doing Crunches – Let’s settle this one once and for all: Crunches is not the path to six-pack abs. Because Core Strength is essential to balance, stability and power in your arms and legs. Instead, try plank.

Caffeinate Does even need explain, It give a jolt for stamina and endurance. Coffee or Tea, Your call.

Sleep In – Skimping on sleep to exercise may actually put your health at risk. If you’re short on sleep, you experience higher levels of inflammation and a decrease in the hormones that help you lose fat and stabilize your appetite.

Drink Chocolate MilkP – It is a pretty solid combination of the carbs and protein your body needs while recovering from a workout. Recent research gives us permission to feel like a kid again. (In moderation, of course!)
