    Working Around a Night Owl’s Schedule

    Are you one of those people who likes to burn the midnight oil? That means you probably fall into the NIGHT OWL category … which is linked with being open-minded and creative.

But scientists say with a few routine shifts, it doesn’t have to be that way! Check out these studies: Study 1: In a study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine and Science in Sports, more than 5,000 people had their activity level monitored using a movement tracker.

  • Why It’s Harder to Lose Fat after 40

    Why It’s Harder to Lose Fat after 40

    It shouldn’t surprise us that our bodies change as we move through life, but it does sometimes. We’re not the same at age 10 as we are at 20, right? And after 40, we go through some transitions that can make it easier to gain unwanted fat and harder to lose it. That’s natural. Nothing to worry about. It doesn’t mean you’re doing anything wrong. It also definitely doesn’t mean you can’t do anything about it. We lose muscle mass starting in our 30s unless we practice resistance training (with weights, body weight, resistance bands, etc.) Muscle burns more calories than fat, but too many of us avoid weight training because we’re ....

BUT IT DRIVES OUR CAMPBELL PERSONAL TRAINERS CRAZY! Because we know what nonsense it is. These are all examples ....

  • The Secret Strategy For Getting Results

    The Secret Strategy For Getting Results

    How many times were we told as children to wait for what we wanted? It seemed like we heard that for everything. “You can watch TV after you do your homework.” “No dessert till you’ve eaten your vegetables.” “Santa won’t be back for a year -- really.” It’s just part of being a kid. And part of becoming an adult is grasping the concept of delayed gratification. That was the impetus behind a famous study of children known as the Marshmallow Test. Researchers tested young kids to see if they would prefer to have one marshmallow now or try to wait for two in 15 minutes. Years later, they checked back in with the kids and ....
