The study recruited 30 participants who were either asked to carry out 20 minutes moderate aerobic exercise or they were given a 20-minute yoga class.

The Heart-Pumping Bodyweight Workout You Can Do in a Commercial Break After sitting through the same commercial three times during one ad break, many of us have asked ourselves: “Why do I keep watching the commercials?” At least, that’s what many of us here at the Greatist office have wondered, so we got in touch with our friend Rob Sulaver at Bandana Training to see if he could help us make better use of commercial break downtime.

How To Pick Up Chicks: A Lesbian Guide to Getting Girl-on-Girl Action Hellllloooooo ladiesss, you’re lookin’ good today. As you may or may not know, after a few years of coming out, dating, and general lesbian tomfoolery, Katrina C. Danger is off the market. Namely you. Yeah, you.

What's more, the more fit you are, the more benefits you will get. Researchers measured biochemical changes in the blood of a variety of people. Metabolic changes that began after 10 minutes on a treadmill still were measurable 60 minutes after people cooled down.

25 Things I Do To Make My Body Dysphoria Feel Smaller and Quieter Before we even begin: I’m not a medically trained professional, nor am I a licensed therapist. Today I’m all curled up in my duvet cover because I haven’t been able to sleep in two days, and maybe if I was a doctor I’d find the little parts of me that aren’t working and fix them so I could get out of bed. Unfortunately I’m just a kid with a binder and a lot of pronouns, and the world seems like a whole lotta sharp edges right now. If you’ve never had body dysphoria, let me explain a little bit about how it makes me feel and why I have it. My gender identity is a very slippery thing. On the days like today when I’m struggling under dysphoria and anxiety and a whole range of things that are tied to those words by tight red strings, it’s hard to remember that I am a person who deserves to take care of their wonderful self. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. 23. 24. 25.
