5 Sleep Myths Busted

It accounts for a third of your life and a big chunk of your health and longevity. So why aren’t you sleeping enough? – By Jim Gorman, Men’s Health

What a night. The woman of your dreams appeared. Your pulse raced. Heavy breathing ensued. You do remember it, right? Oh, wait, you were asleep. And that’s not all you missed. Under cover of night, sleep floods your veins with age-defying human growth hormone. Sleep raises an army of T cells and sends them into battle against colds and infection.

Pump Up, Slim Down

If you’ve blown off weight training for fear of bulking up, you’re missing out on the fastest fat-burning method known to woman – By Lauren Aaronson, Women’s Health
