I’ve provided some excerpts below. Click on the links to learn more. Enjoy!

Want to keep your new year’s resolutions? Get more sleep

“Making New Year’s resolutions is easy. Keeping them — beyond a couple of weeks, at least — is tough. One big factor that affects whether the commitment sticks: sleep. A sleep expert and neurologist explains how better sleep can help you keep those resolutions, including eating healthier, exercising more and getting a promotion.”

What is good quality sleep? National Sleep Foundation provides guidance

“The report comes as the first step in NSF’s effort to spearhead defining the key indicators of good sleep quality. They key determinants of quality sleep are included in a report published in Sleep Health. They include:

Sleeping more time while in bed (at least 85% of the total time)

  Falling asleep in 30 minutes or less

  Waking up no more than once per night; and

  Being awake for 20 minutes or less after initially falling asleep.”

Meditation and music may help reverse early memory loss in adults at risk for Alzheimer’s Disease

“In a recent study of adults with early memory loss, a West Virginia University research team lead by Dr. Kim Innes found that practice of a simple meditation or music listening program may have multiple benefits for older adults with preclinical memory loss.”

Too much sitting, too little exercise may accelerate biological aging

“Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine report that elderly women who sit for more than 10 hours a day with low physical activity have cells that are biologically older by eight years compared to women who are less sedentary.”

Frankly, do we give a damn …? Study finds links between swearing and honesty

“It’s long been associated with anger and coarseness but profanity can have another, more positive connotation. Psychologists have learned that people who frequently curse are being more honest.

“Writing in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science, a team of researchers from the Netherlands, the UK, the USA and Hong Kong report that people who use profanity are less likely to be associated with lying and deception.”

Exercise … It does a body good: 20 minutes can act as anti-inflammatory

“It’s well known that regular physical activity has health benefits, including weight control, strengthening the heart, bones and muscles and reducing the risk of certain diseases.

“Recently, researchers have found how just one session of moderate exercise can also act as an anti-inflammatory. The findings have encouraging implications for chronic diseases like arthritis, fibromyalgia and for more pervasive conditions, such as obesity.”

Your thoughts on “Sitting Too Long Can Age You by 8X. Plus, 5 More Trends Affecting Your Health”

  1. The only products recommended by the National Sleep Foundation are the My Pillow products and that is because the National Sleep Foundation was founded by the My Pillow company for the purpose of being able to engage in what many would call false advertising.
    If you know this take me off your email list.

  2. I look forward to all your health related issues. I would be interested in reading anything related to E.D. As an older male there times when things don’t work like they had in past.
    And information for enhancement or natural treatment is very sketchy and meant to sell you something with the images of orgies.

  3. Yes, I enjoy your articals on various health topics. I have been reading clinical studies on prevention of heart disease. How about an artical on Vitamin K2 (Mk7) and its ability to keep calcium out of arteries and putting it in the bones and teeth. Also, you can do an artical on Nattokinase, an enzyme that dissoves blood clots by raising plasmin levels in the blood.
    Respectfully,
    Bill

  4. I enjoyed health comments. It seems mostly common sense would tell us these things , but good to see research to back up that sense.

  5. I find your articles very helpful sometimes extremely helpful. They are a good starting point for a little research knowing that you have filtered thru the good, bad and ugly.
    It is also nice knowing who is writing about these topics. So keep it up picking topics at your discretion .

  6. Yes, I do enjoy reading your Health information, it’s helpful and useful and motivating particularly as you age as it seems if you don’t eat right and exercise daily you can easily and quickly fall into defining health. Eating and exercise will certainly improve your health So keep it out up please.

  7. I love reading all of the health & wellness info you have on your website. The info you post is useful & practical. KEEP IT COMING !!!

  8. I’d like to see alternative treatments on cancer, other than the conventional chemo/radiation. that we have had for years. People are dying all around me of cancer. Usually, it comes back in two or three years. Also, alternatives to surgery on carpal tunnel. Any new research on Parkinsons disease?
