3 Health Fads I Won't Be Trying This Summer
I admit it. I'm still carrying my winter weight and haven't done anything about it, yet. Now summer's around the corner and I'm that guy searching for something that will motivate me to be fitter and healthier before my bare chest is exposed to other humans on a beach somewhere come July. Enter the internet. The internet is beautiful for it's ability to connect us; to foster community and spread useful information.

We Really Want To Believe This Is What The First Hangover Was Like
Alcohol and fun were invented at the same time -- that's just historical fact. But just like good can't exist without bad, alcohol can't really exist without hangovers. It makes you wonder what the first hangover was like. Well, wonder no longer, because comedy writer and actor Jon Mishner takes us there. We, as a species, have obviously learned nothing. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

How Fibromyalgia Can Be Eased With Mindfulness
Fibromyalgia Online Summit - 12th to 14th May When I first began my journey with mindfulness for health, my personal knowledge was limited to spinal and leg pain. I wasn't really aware that there are pain conditions that can affect the whole body -- such as fibromyalgia. Over the years I've had the privilege to meet many people living with fibromyalgia, such as Lesa Vallentine, 52, Derbyshire. Fibromyalgia is a painful and unpleasant condition. It can drag you down, leaving you exhausted and desperate. People tell me that living with fibromyalgia feels like it wrecks your entire life: sleep, being awake, relationships, a...

Why Workplace Stress Is a Collective Challenge and What to Do About It
The relationship between workplace stress and poor mental health is well established. In our recent publication, Workplace Stress: A Collective Challenge, the International Labour Organizations' Safety and Health at Work team surveyed the most recent studies on workplace stress from around the world including, among others, Asia and the Pacific, the Americas, Australia and Europe. We found that work related stress costs global society untold billions in direct and indirect costs annually.

Why Working 'Just' Three Days a Week As a Nurse Is Utterly Exhausting
I was sitting at my computer screen, entering orders for a physician, and trying not to forget what he had said since I had neglected to write it down.

I glanced at the time on my computer screen and was taken aback that seven hours had flown by so quickly. Then I realized with dread that I hadn't documented a single thing on my other patient. I was so behind! And as my sand-filled eyes started to water in the frigid air of my surgical ICU I realize...

My Struggle With Alcohol: Why I Said Goodbye
Photo credit: George Doyle When I quit drinking, outer appearances said I still had it all together. My life, family and career were intact and fully functional. Like so many problem drinkers--especially mothers--I didn't fit the alcoholic stereotypes. And yet, I came to the painful decision that if I wanted to live a healthy life and continue to be a good mother to my children, I would have to say goodbye to alcohol. Who would've though that I would actually come to love living a sober life? I loved drinking so much that this is still incredible and kind of amusing to me.

Melatonin is a very popular sleep aid. It's naturally produced in your body. You don't need a prescription for it and can buy it in gummy form or in a fruity drink.

Natural melatonin, a hormone produced by the pineal gland, helps humans fall asleep -- and synthetic melatonin has been available as a sleep aid for nearly three decades.

The First Happy Hour
Behind every sip of beer you drink, there are millions of years of evolution at work. Research into 70 million years of primate evolution indicates that our ancestors evolved a markedly enhanced ability to metabolize or break down ethanol 10 million years ago. Who knew they had happy hours back then? That doesn't mean that humans have been drinking wine and beer that long. After the first civilizations formed in the Middle East about 9,000 years ago, people discovered that the fermentation process preserves food. That is probably when people began experimenting with alcoholic beverages. Previously, historians believed this...

Why I Stopped Taking Sleep Medication
When I was eight, my hair caught on fire in the middle of the night. I'd been illicitly reading far past my bedtime and eventually fell asleep with the lamp on. I woke to the awful smell of smoldering hair and ran downstairs in a panic, bursting into my parents' room. "My hair's on fire!" I shrieked. My mom and dad groaned, rolled over and shooed me away. They weren't neglectful. They were simply the weary parents of a budding insomniac. I've had a hard time sleeping through the night for as long as I can remember. When you have insomnia, exhaustion becomes so oppressive that if you're offered a quick fix, you ta...

How Alcohol Use Affects Health
You may have heard of Dry January, a campaign run in the U.K. by Alcohol Concern. To promote alcohol awareness, it involves (as you’ve likely gathered) completely abstaining from alcohol for the month of January. It’s a valuable campaign with noble intentions, but a minority of participants may unfortunately miss the wider point. A month of strict abstinence does lead some to drink more than they should come February 1. Remaining alcohol free for a month is an achievement which deserves to be rewarded, but compensatory drinking is not what Dry January is trying to advocate. A healthy attitude towards consu...

How To Avoid The New Year’s Day Hangover
BOSTON (CBS) –  While it’s great to celebrate the start of a new year with a glass of bubbly, no one wants to begin 2016 with a hangover.
