Why That Morning Walk Is So Important

Sure, we all know that exercise is good for you, but recent study shows that an early morning out door walk is beneficial for a few more reasons.

  1. Sunlight suppresses production of the hormone melatonin, which helps us sleep. Suppressing its production early in the day allows you to produce more at night, when you need it.

  2. Besides the obvious cardiovascular benefits of walking, regular aerobic exercise also increases the part of the brain associated with learning and memory.

Swearing May Be Good for You, We Swear It's True!

Letting loose with a blast of foul language may have some benefits.

Researchers at Marist College in New York and the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts determined that people swear profusely also tend to have a wider vocabulary than average.

Another study at England's Keele University found that swearing can help reduce stress and can also help endure physical pain.

Tips To Make Antibiotics More Effective

Because of frequent use, overuse and misuse, more and more viruses are becoming resistant.

Here are some simple tips from medical professionals that can help keep antibiotics doing their job longer:

  1. Wash your hands frequently – It’s still one of the most effective ways to cut down on the spread of viruses.
  2. Don’t take someone else’s antibiotics – Your friends or family members may mean well, but specific viruses need different antibiotics. The type and amount of antibiotics to take is always best left to a physician.
  3. Take your antibiotics as prescribed – Not taking them all can breed antibiotic resistance
  4. Choose foods that are raised antibiotic-free – This is one area where overuse may be having a counterproductive effect.
  5. Don’t assume you need an antibiotic – There are many viruses that really require other types of treatment.
