Health & Wellness Links From Around The Web!

by Henry Gould – May 31st, 2019

It’s Friday morning! Instead of waking up and checking your phone for angry client emails and 1 million group chat notifications (no? just me?) why not browse a few interesting links from around the internet? All the news that’s fit to print, or rather, stuff I came across that seemed interesting and relevant to the lovely #YardHard community. Let’s gooooooooooooo.

“Why frozen fruit and veggies may be better for you than fresh” – CNN

You got my attention! Interesting read… it seems freezing is actually a very effective means for preserving plants, especially in terms of nutritional quality. Since many are picked at the peak of ripeness vs. being picked unripe and allowed to ripen during transport, freezing can often times be best.

“Vaping: how safe is it really?” – British GQ

Maybe I’m a normie, but I find the creeping popularity of Juul’s and other vape devices a little unsettling. If it seems too good to be true, generally it is (I’m looking at you, “bulletproof coffee”…) so this article grabbed my attention. It’s written by the GQ Doctor, answering a variety of questions on the subject. TL:DR, they might be better than a regular cigarette, but will likely lead to increased nicotine addiction, thus leading you to want a real cigarette. Evil genius…

“Persian Cantaloupe Drink” – Saveur

In North America we basically drink the juice of a handful of fruits (orange, cranberry, apple), and although most processed juice can have more sugar than pop, every once in a while it’s a nice treat, especially on a hot day. And cantaloupe… who doesn’t love cantaloupe?? This drink looks delicious, and apparently goes well with gin… summer cocktail party anyone?

“6 Mistakes You’re Making When Doing Squats” – Cosmopolitan

Unless you haven’t been paying attention when Ilan, Sam and Joce run you through a workout, Cosmo is here to set you straight.

“Burnout Classified as Legitimate Clinical Syndrome by World Health Organization” – Men’s Journal

Ahhhh, so we’re not supposed to feel completely run over by the world every waking hour of the day? Interesting! Now, I’m not sure doing an hour of expense reports qualifies as burnout, but the three aspects they do count (exhaustion & low energy levels, cynicism towards ones job, lowered productivity) definitely seem worthy of further exploration.
