You Really Only Have to Work Out Two Days a Week

January 10, 2017

There’s a good chance you’re one of the millions of people who made a New Year’s resolution to get in better shape this year.  There’s ALSO a good chance you’re already realizing your plan to hit the gym five days a week is DOOMED.

But here’s some good news.  According to a new study out of Loughborough University in England, you only need to work out two days a week to get the basic health benefits of exercise and lower your risk of DROPPING DEAD.

The researchers say you need to do 75 minutes of hard exercise or 150 minutes of moderate exercise a week to lower your chances of dying from heart disease by 40% and your chances of dying from cancer by 18%.

So if you just hit the gym hard for around 35 minutes two days a week, that could be enough.

Now . . . when it comes to other goals, like getting a six pack or losing weight, those will take more time and effort.  But if you just want to change from being totally sedentary to somewhat healthy, two days of exercise can cut it.

Would You Consider an Open Marriage?

December 16, 2016

 

This sounds high, but approximately 5% of married couples in this country are in OPEN MARRIAGES . . . where they can both get-it-on with other people.  That sounds exhausting.  But anyway, would YOU be interested in that?

According to a new survey, 17% of men and 9% of women say YES, they’d do it if their wife or husband asked them for an open marriage.  And 16% of men and 10% of women say they’d consider it.

That means only 81% of women and 67% of men are totally against the idea.

The Average Single Person Now Dates Six People at Once

November 29, 2016

Apparently single people today are a LOT better at multitasking than they used to be.

According to a new study by eHarmony, the average single person now dates SIX people at the same time. Apparently online dating, Tinder, and social media have made it a hell of a lot easier to find tons of people to date.

If you are dating all of these people at once, then how is it that they don’t find out about each other?

Well . . . the study used the modern definition of “dating,” which doesn’t actually mean “going on dates.”  It can just mean you’re texting with someone for a while and you rarely hang out in person.  So that does make it easier to juggle six people.

And, since dating six people would mean lots of breakups, more and more people are just skipping that step and GHOSTING . . . meaning they just stop texting you.

64% of single people say that they’ve recently been dating someone who just VANISHED and totally stopped communicating with them.

5 Ways to Tell if Someone is Lying to You

November 14, 2016

Do you hate being lied too? I think everyone does. Unfortunately it seems to happen a lot, and in all kinds of situations. Not everyone can have a lie detector test on them at all time to catch someone in the act, but you can look for signs that someone might be lying too you.  Here are 5 Ways to Tell if Someone is Lying to You.

1. Look for Facial Expressions 

The face is usually the first place that reflects a person’s true personality. When a person is happy or sad, it shows on his or her entire face. When telling lies, micro-expressions appear for a fraction of a second and reveal the person’s true character.

2. Notice Body Language

 A person who is lying usually uses his or her hands to touch their nose, pull up socks, wipe away sweat, tug on his or her clothes or rub their lips. Another thing to watch out for is that a liar does not typically sit up straight while telling the lie. He or she might feel a bit uncomfortable sitting in the same position and might even fidget or fuss for no reason.

3. Change in Voice Tone

Closely observe the voice or tone of the person you think is lying. Any changes in voice (i.e. slower or faster-than-normal speech patterns) indicate dishonesty. Stammering or stuttering may also point to a lie.

4. Proclaims Honesty Repeatedly

A liar often repeats phrases to emphasize the validity of his statements. Frequently used phrases like “to be honest”, “believe me”, and “to tell the truth” are often clear-cut indications that there is something wrong in the story. Most people don’t use these statements so often.

5. Notice the Pause 

When a liar is making up a story to cover the truth, you may notice the person taking a long pause so that he or she can create a sequence of events. This only happens when they are asked a question for which they didn’t prepare an answer beforehand. A liar usually makes up the events as he or she talks.

 

These are just some ways to tell if a person is lying. So if you ever feel like someone is stretching the truth or not begging honest, then look for these signs for the answer.
