Inhale, exhale: Proper breathing techniques
By Jeff White
From Jan. 8: There's one thing we all do from the moment we are born to our last second on earth: breathe. We all know how important exercise to our overall health, but breathing properly is just as important. The air we breathe contains oxygen, and when that oxygen enters our lungs, it's transported to every cell in our bodies. The key here is to breathe long breaths, thus filling our lungs with this crucial nutrient. The problem is many of us don't do that.

Runners: Why failing to prepare is preparing to fail
By Heidi Dawson
From April 9: OK, class, hands up. Who performs a thorough warm-up before going for a run? I would put good money on this number being less than 50 percent, maybe even as low as 25 percent. And, no, a slow first mile doesn't count. There are numerous reasons why runners often don't take the time to warm up properly before they set off. These may include time constraints, confusion over what they should be doing, or a feeling that they just don't need to warm up. But all three of these reasons aren't valid excuses, and I'm going to explain just why you should make the time for and put in the effort to warm up prerun.

The amazing health benefits of chocolate
By Denise A. Valenti
From July 23: Research has shown health benefits in the regular consumption of chocolate. However, it depends on the chocolate. The sugary, fat-imbibed cocoa confection most often consumed is far different than the cacao bean drink used for medicinal purposes in ancient cultures. But if the sugar is limited and the milk omitted, a dose of dark chocolate can be considered healthy. The earliest evidence of cacao consumption is estimated to be between 1400 and 1100 B.C. when Mayans and Aztecs used the beans in a drink for ceremonial and medicinal purposes.

Triggers that sabotage weight-loss efforts: Situational triggers
By Annette Radvansky
From Nov. 19: A trigger is any person, place, thing, food — or situation — that has a tendency to cause one to overeat. When dieters think of triggers, they typically think of a specific type of food. It's true: Some foods are triggers for these individuals. And for many, sugar and white flour are substance triggers. But there are other kinds of triggers that are much more insidious. When the impulse to indulge stems directly from a situation in one's life that occurs periodically, this is considered a situational trigger.

First healthier sodas, now healthier food
By Archita Datta Majumdar
From Oct. 15: The world's leading soda makers — Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and the Dr Pepper Snapple Group — recently announced a drastic calorie cut in their drinks. But it seems that they are not the only ones bitten by the "go healthy" bug. In 2010, 16 major food and beverage companies joined hands with the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation. They announced that they would focus on reducing 1.5 trillion calories in their products by 2015. They have already made good on their word.

5 diet myths that are just plain wrong
By Archita Datta Majumdar
From July 2: The recent controversy surrounding Dr. Oz and the U.S. Senate is another reminder about how obsessed we are with weight loss and dieting. It also reveals how we can be blinded by the ostentatious promises of numerous products and diet fads. While the Federal Trade Commission and the Senate make deeper probes into bogus diet product ads and weight-loss frauds, it is perhaps time to take a closer look at what we are doing wrong with our health. Informed decisions start with some basic debunking of "lean diet" myths that seem to have too strong a hold over us.

Is regular exercise the best treatment for ADHD?
By Denise A. Valenti
From Aug. 20: As summer winds to a close, the long days of playing, running, swimming and biking cease and are replaced by hours of sitting at a desk, eyes ahead. For some children this is problematic, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is common among children of school age. The causes of ADHD are not known, but studies looking into how genetics, environment, social surroundings, nutrition and brain injury contribute to the process. Another line of research is the relationship of physical activity to the symptoms of ADHD.
