New Chapters… I’m sure we’re all ready to see the backside of all the political adverts that have been clogging up the airwaves and street poles over the past couple of weeks. As much as we may not be looking forward to the queues at the voting stations I can’t help but reflect on what an election represents, the possibility of something new. There is a certain feeling of excitement about the uncertainty of something new, the unknown, the journey you’re about to embark upon, be it a new relationship, that job you’ve always wanted, maybe it’s a new form of working out that you haven’t done before, but there are new opportunities and chances to write more chapters in our own autobiographies whenever we look for them. It’s also incredibly…

Don’t take it sitting down! Anxiety, hardened -arteries, cancer, early death — these are just a few of the evils that can result from sitting for hours on end — but not if you’re active for 60 to 70 minutes a day, according to a new report in the UK-based Lancet medical journal. The meta-analysis of 16 studies involving more than a million people found that for those who were active an hour or more daily, there was no correlation between how much they sat and how soon they died. On the other hand, researchers saw a clear and obvious curve tying people who sat longer and worked out less with a higher risk of dying from cardiovascular disease and cancer. The findings aren’t without controversy: Another recent study claims…

Cut 1 soda, win 2 battles Good news, unrepentant slurpers: You don’t have to quit it all at once. No matter how many soft drinks you tend to swill, swapping just one of them daily for water can lower your calories enough (about 6%) to help you lose weight and improve your overall health, a new Virginia Tech study has found. Yeah, we get it: You can’t (or, be honest — just don’t want to) give up your addiction. You guzzle soda like it’s carbonated crack, even when faced with the constant barrage of research proving that the syrupy sweetened drinks can make you fat, give you diabetes, raise your risk for heart attacks, and cause a myriad of other really bad health problems. So, if you’re one of the junkies:…

To live longer, bury yourself in a book The writing’s on the wall: Getting your nose out of gossipy websites, clicking off all the streaming screens, and picking up a book for just 30 minutes a day can help you live longer. Researchers for the University of Yale in the US surveyed general data (income, education, health) on 3 600 subjects, at ages 50 and over, who’d participated in a previous study. They then looked at how often the subjects read books, periodicals, or nothing at all. Over the course of the study, researchers found, people who read books more than 3½ hours a week had a 23% decrease in mortality compared with those who didn’t read at all. Those who averaged 3½ hours of book reading had a 17%…
