Having a bad week? Exercise might turn it around!

In one of the more compelling arguments for exercise that we've heard in a long time, new research suggests that just a single day of exercise may trigger "a cascade of positive events." And not just for that day! Analysis of the study findings revealed that daily exercise was likely to produce positive social and achievement-oriented events that day AND the next. So if you watch TV while exercising at home, you could start "a cascade of positive events" while watching A Series of Unfortunate Events! (We couldn't help it...) 

Surprise! Your cat may love you more than it loves food.

Cat people, your affections are not going unreciprocated. A recent study looked at feline behavior after having been separated from food, toys, scents, and human attention for a few hours. What did the cats miss most? Human attention! (Second place: Food. Cats aren't dummies.) So the next time your friend implies your kitty is only in it for the food, you can come at 'em with scientific research. Boom!

And that's all we've got. 'Til next time… Chew the right thing!

Chew on this:

It's National Coconut Cream Pie Day, May 8th. Sorry, pie... We'll be celebrating with these creamy coconut Samoas-Style Cannoli Cones!
