Self Help And Dad Bods

Waking Up Easy

There are millions of self-help books, webinars, podcasts, and TED talks that claim they can help improve your life and make you a better, more productive member of society.

Hell, there are self-proclaimed Jesus profits that stand on boxes on street corners with megaphones, yelling at you to repent your sins. I suppose to some, those also could be considered agents in one’s quest for self-improvement.

But the people you should probably REALLY pay attention to if you want sound advice are those that have already proven to be successful.

And while there are a variety of people that are successful in a multitude of ways and measures – they all seem to have one thing in common.

They wake up at ghastly hours in the early morning. While this particular habit might prove successful for business, is it actually good for your health?

The New York Times takes a deeper look here.



Work That Dad Bod

Summer is here and if you are like 90% of Americans, you are coveting that slim, lean, beach bod. Also, if you are like most Americans, WANTING that perfect six pack is about as far as your aspirations will go. Actually putting in the work is a completely different story.

Short of actually going to the gym and eating kale, there isn’t a lot you can do to circumvent the painstakingly annoying prospect of getting toned. (Unless maybe you’re a master at spray-on abs, calf implants, or Snapchat filters.)

But there’s a glimmer of hope for us average Joe-Shmoes! According to this study conducted by Planet Fitness, the “dad bod” might be just as attractive to the opposite sex as the “Michael Phelps bod.” So, don’t start that crash diet quite yet.

Here’s the skinny on the not-so-skinny.
