If you venture beyond your email and social network of choice while on the Internet, you have noticed that there seems to be a new study released every day that takes a seemingly-innocuous part of your day and tells you that it is slowly killing you. This morning, I came across an article stating that sitting more than 3 hours per day is killing you, even if you exercise every day. Not only sitting but being sedentary in general can shave of 2 or more years from your life expectancy. The same study also says that if you watch more than 2 hours of TV per day, take off an additional 1.4 years. Sheesh.
For those of us who are deskjockeys and HAVE to sit for 8-10 hours per day, we already have one foot in the grave. And if you have a Netflix subscription, you are double screwed. But what can we do to keep the other one out as long as possible? What if you did everything standing up? Would that put years back on? Don’t take any chances. Here are some life changes to consider to combat this heinous discovery:

They pretty much infect anyone they can get their grasp on and then drive them positively bonkers for what could be days, months and in some rare situations, years! But, there’s good news. A 13-year-old girl has found the cure for those pesky hiccups that make babies cry and adults do silly things like sip water upside down or hold their breath until they’re turning magenta!

There are a lot of ways to stay in shape, but it’s pretty hard to find something that is challenging, works about 85 percent of the muscles in your body and provides you with a beautiful view!

People get bullied for a number of reasons. Maybe you’re too tall, too short, too skinny or too fat. Cassandra Bankson wasn’t made fun of or teased for any of those reasons. She was constantly cut down because of her skin. She has acne and because kids were so cruel, Cassandra stopped attending school and did an independent study instead.
Though her skin troubles left her embarrassed to leave her house at one point, you would never know it now. Cassandra is a model and she helps tons of people each day cope with their own skin problems through her YouTube channel. No, her acne hasn’t gone away. She just learned a way to apply her makeup that makes it virtually nonexistent, and was kind and brave enough to share her story and solution with the world!
