How Physical Activity Can Prevent an Early Death

Is all exercise good for you? Yes, without a doubt. Are there some exercises that can do more for you than others? Apparently so according to a recent study conducted at the James Cook University in Australia.

Do you ever find yourself in need of a quick 15-30 minute snooze halfway through the day to give you that extra boost you need? If so, you may actually be getting more than a quick pick-me-up.

Most of us already know that our diet is the most important part of losing weight. Unfortunately, it can be the most challenging part of losing weight as well.

It’s often difficult to know exactly what and when to eat that will give us the best chance of losing weight.

Testosterone to Boost Your Energy

Our bodies start out doing a pretty decent job of supplying us with the right balance of hormones to keep us healthy and happy. However, everyone reaches a point in life when the production of certain hormones is altered in one way or another.

Testosterone is one of the hormones produced naturally by the body that plays a role in both men and women. For men, testosterone helps to maintain energy, mood, bone strength, sex drive and function, and muscle mass. While we don’t often think of testosterone in women, it actually plays an important role in bone growth, libido and mood.

Remember that moment when you were in a dressing room at a store looking at yourself in the mirror and feeling an overwhelming sense of motivation to do whatever it takes to fit into the clothes you were trying to squeeze into?
