The Huffington Post
Carving out time for exercise in your day could help you feel more in control of your work-life balance, according to a new study. "The idea sounds counterintuitive. How is it that adding something else to our work day helps to alleviate stress and empower us to deal with work-family issues?" study researcher Russell Clayton, an assistant professor of management at Saint Leo University, said in a statement.

Only 1 in 4 young teens meets US fitness guidelines
Denver Post
Young teens aren't exactly embracing the government's Let's Move mantra, the latest fitness data suggest. Only 1 in 4 U.S. kids aged 12 to 15 meet the recommendations — an hour or more of moderate to vigorous activity every day. The results are based on about 800 kids who self-reported their activity levels and had physical exams as part of the 2012 National Youth Fitness Survey.

7 ways to keep alcohol from wrecking your diet
Health.com via CNN
Over the years, many of my clients have confided that too many cocktails on the weekend, followed by alcohol-induced overeating, cancels out their work-week healthy eating efforts. And as a result, instead of seeing results, they remain "stuck" in a weight loss plateau. Sound familiar? This trend is supported by a new U.K. survey, which found that in a single evening out on the town, 40 percent of women consume about 1,000 calories in alcohol alone.

VITAMINS & PHARMACEUTICALS


Vitamins can help prevent heart attacks
The Huffington Post
A series of articles published on Dec. 17 in a prestigious medical journal, The Annals of Internal Medicine, received a lot of press because of an editorial entitled, "Enough is Enough: Stop Wasting Money on Vitamin and Mineral Supplements." It's safe to say that many reporters and commentators did not actually read the studies, because the data published actually revealed the opposite, at least for heart disease and for cancer in men.

The New York Times
In addition to its other well-known effects, a cup of coffee might improve your memory. Researchers had 73 men and women volunteers who did not habitually consume caffeine study pictures of flowers, musical instruments and other objects. After they were done, they gave 35 of them a pill containing 200-milligrams of caffeine &mdahs; the amount found in one to two cups of coffee — and the rest an identical looking placebo.

Reuters
Just over a third of U.S. adults ages 18 to 65 got the flu shot during the 2012-13 flu season, according to an analysis released, and if that trend holds for the current flu season, many adults may be at risk. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the most prevalent flu strain this season is H1N1 — the same strain that caused the 2009 pandemic and afflicts otherwise healthy children and young adults.
