Exercise is more fun when there's more than 1
The Wall Street Journal
Some people need music for a workout boost or a personal trainer urging them to work harder. Scott Gilroy finds motivation by pushing his limits with other people, whether it's with a partner in yoga or a group of 600 people doing sprints. One thing Gilroy regularly does is AcroYoga, a style of yoga where one person lies or stands on the ground and balances the other using his hands and feet in different poses. "It's like when your dad played airplane with you as a kid," he says.

11 reasons you're always hungry
Health.com via The Huffington Post
It's one thing to notice an uptick in appetite if you've been training hard at the gym, or if you're pregnant or PMS-ing. But when you always feel like a bottomless pit for no obvious reason, then something's definitely up. "Hunger is the physiological need for calories, water and salt, and it's driven by a mix of factors, including your diet, appetite hormones and emotional factors, such as stress," says Maggie Moon, RD, a Los Angeles-based nutritionist and owner of Everyday Healthy Eating. Figuring out why you can't stop shoveling it down is important, because excess hunger can tip you off to a physical or mental health issue —and giving in to that need to feed can send your BMI into dangerously unhealthy territory.

Shift work may promote unhealthy lifestyle
Reuters
Shift work may lead to a poor diet and too little exercise, accounting for at least some of the increased health risks seen among people who work changing hours or regular overnights, a new study suggests. Tracking airline employees in Finland, researchers found that people who worked varying shifts and night shifts on the ground consumed more fat and fewer vegetables and fruits than daytime ground personnel and in-flight workers.

The Washington Post
Even senior citizens may see a longevity benefit from exercising: Older men who exercise 30 minutes a day tend to live longer than their couch-potato counterparts, a new study finds. In the study of men in their 60s and 70s, those who routinely did 30 minutes of exercise six days a week had a 40 percent lower risk of dying over a 12-year period, compared with men who were sedentary.

Recommended levels of activity rarely achieved in busy workplace environment
European Society of Cardiology via Medical Xpress
Even a busy job may not provide enough exercise to meet current activity recommendations for the prevention of cardiovascular disease, according to a study reported today at the EuroPRevent congress in Lisbon. Dr Eleanor McIntyre from the Galway University Hospital in Ireland said that the workplace — where most adults spend around 60 percent of their waking hours — "represents a significant domain where short bouts of physical activity can be accrued and counted towards the recommended guidelines" for CVD prevention. However, results from this small study, which assessed the activity levels of all employees in an inevitably busy hospital, suggest that sedentary behavior is still prevalent, with levels of physical activity insufficient to reduce CVD risk.

Health.com via ABC News
You may have seen a concerning headline recently about dietary supplements. Research presented at the American Association for Cancer Research Annual Meeting suggested that taking supplements doesn't curb cancer, and taking more than needed may actually drive up cancer risk.
