The importance of enjoying exercise
The Telegraph
When it comes to your exercise regime you need to find something that you enjoy. If you enjoy it, you'll stick to it, which is important, as consistency is the key to achieving goals and of course for our long-term health. We can very often get sidetracked talking about new training systems and methods, but in the end it comes down to sustainability and consistency. And these are directly related to engagement — which means having a little fun along the way.

CBS News
Can skipping breakfast really ruin your weight-loss plan? Probably not, according to a new study, though experts stress that the value of a nutritious breakfast should not be underestimated, and skipping it regularly may not be a good idea.

Young adult fitness may aid aging brain
The Washington Post via The Columbian
Researchers have known for some time that cardiovascular problems in middle and later adulthood may cause cognitive deficits as we age. But surprisingly, there has been little if any research into whether such problems earlier in adulthood have the same effect.
