Walking at Work Improves Mood, Reduces Cravings

Walking in City Streets

A recent study, published in the Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity, showed that walking for five minutes at the top of every hour increased employees’ happiness and vigor, while reducing fatigue and hunger cravings. 

In the study, researchers compared the effects of one session of physical activity in the morning to “microbouts” throughout the day to sitting at a desk all day. It’s no surprise that sitting all day takes a toll on the body and mind, but even small quantities of activity throughout the day can be helpful in boosting your health. 

Researchers found that microbouts of activity had the best effect on mood, energy levels, and cognitive function. While one bout of activity in the morning is still better than sitting for six hours straight and was shown to increase office workers’ self-perceived energy, the microbouts method improved workers’ moods, decreased fatigue, and reduced food cravings.

Mila Kunis Is Actually A GOOD Mom!

Mila Kunis had a big hit last year with her raunchy comedy Bad Moms. But IRL, she and hubby Ashton Kutcher are doing great with their two bundles of joy.

Of course, it helps when you win the kid lottery!

In her first red carpet since giving birth to baby Dimitri four months ago, Mila appeared at CinemaCon in Las Vegas on Tuesday to talk about a possible Bad Moms sequel.

But before her panel, the actress gushed to E! News about how good Wyatt was with her baby brother:

“She loves it. She loves her brother. She wants him to sleep in her room and doesn’t get jealous or envious. She’s great. We got very lucky.”

AH-Mazing! That sibling bond is so important — and so difficult for some families! We’re glad that isn’t the case for Mila.

BTW, did we mention how stunning she looks in her red carpet return (above)??

She also spilled to ET that she isn’t about to push her luck in the foreseeable future with a third baby:

“We’re good on two right now. We’re solid. It’s perfect, it’s like, great, you know? I have two really healthy, really wonderful kids. Why test my luck?”

You hear that, Kim Kardashian West??

LGBT Superheroes Are Becoming WAY More Common In Comic Books! Meet Some Of The Coolest HERE!

Just a few weeks ago, Marvel Comics premiered America, the company’s first solo title led by a lesbian, a super strong Latina named America Chavez.

This is a huge deal, but it turns out comic books in general have become much more progressive lately — introducing many new LGBT characters who have quickly become fan faves AND ALSO revealing some unexplored sexualities of classic superheroes.

Of course, in the case of Wonder Woman it’s BASICALLY just confirming what we all assumed; we mean, she lived on an island of nothing but women for hundreds of years! Those magic bracelets could only deflect that question so long! Ha!

If you’re interested in exploring some of these gay heroes for yourself, we came up with a great list to get you started…

Huma Abedin Is Not Giving Up On Anthony Weiner!

The heart wants what it wants??

Back in August, Hillary Clinton-aide Huma Abedin announced she was separating from husband Anthony Weiner after the former congressman was caught in yet ANOTHER sexting scandal! In case you forgot, he sent a photo of his crotch while his toddler son was lying right next to him.

According to recent reports, the political staffer wants to give her marriage another try.

An insider says:

“Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony… He has been spending 80 to 90 percent of his time at the [Irving Place apartment] they share… If there is a disagreement, he goes to his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn.”

Apparently, their families don’t want the couple to throw in the towel either.

“Both [his and her] families are hoping they will reconcile.”

In fact, a different source says the power twosome never really broke up; it was all a PR stunt for Miz Clinton’s now-defunct campaign. The split was:

“more for optics for the campaign and [under] pressure from Hillary’s camp.”

Even though Weiner has sent explicit photos to countless woman, Miz Abedin takes comfort in the fact that he’s never had a physical affair.

“A lot of [their] friends believe this is an illness, that he is sick… Huma takes it into consideration that there’s been no affair, or physical contact that anybody is aware of. He never met [the women].”

These two can’t quit each other!

This Is The Most Savage Photo Crop You Will Ever See…

Photoshop is officially a weapon of mass destruction…

Earlier this month, Twitter user @CaballeroSerena was faced with a dilemma when she recently called it quits with a friend: Should she delete the pics of them together, or save the snaps because she personally looked good??

That’s when “Serena” came up with the perfect solution and killed two birds with one stone!

After cropping her ex-bestie out of the pic, she posted the results on social media!

When her tweet went viral, other people posted photos where they had to (photographically) cut a friend or lover out of their life!

All’s fair in love and war… and the Internet!

The Lemoncholy Life of Annie Aster ($1.99 Kindle), by Scott Wilbanks [Sourcebooks Landmark]

Annabelle Aster doesn’t bow to convention-not even that of space and time-which makes the 1890s Kansas wheat field that has appeared in her modern-day San Francisco garden easy to accept. Even more peculiar is Elsbeth, the truculent schoolmarm who sends Annie letters through the mysterious brass mailbox perched on the picket fence that now divides their two worlds.

Annie and Elsbeth’s search for an explanation to the hiccup in the universe linking their homes leads to an unsettling discovery-and potential disaster for both of them. Together they must solve the mystery of what connects them before one of them is convicted of a murder that has yet to happen…and yet somehow already did.
