There’s more than one reason to change the way you eat. A new report in the medical journal The Lancelot proposes a “planetary health diet,” which involves eating better not only for your own overall health, but for the long-term survival of the planet.

The report points out that globally, three billion people are malnourished, leading to a need to change the way we all eat in order to reduce food production. By switching to a diet that’s more beneficial to the global population, humans can prevent as many as 11.6 premature deaths while also avoiding hurting the planet.

Laziness May Be Key to Living Longer

Society conditions us to believe that moving is everything. The worst thing we can do is lounge on the sofa all day, binge-watching our favorite streaming TV series. Instead we should be hiking the nearest trails or training for a marathon. Still, even with all of these warnings, many people choose lethargy over activity.

Those people may be on to something. A new study from the University of Kansas and Oxford University reveals that laziness may increase a person’s lifespan. The data came from analysis of fossils that date back as far as five million years. After studying the information, the team discovered that species that needed more energy on a daily basis were more likely to die out quickly. On the other hand, those who expended less energy from one day to the next tended to live a longer life.

Exercise has long been connected to good mental health, often recommended as treatment for a variety of conditions. But the good news is, you don’t have to work out every day to see benefits. Unlike previous recommendations, experts now say that working out three to five days per week could be all you need to see results.

The information comes from a recent study where researchers looked at data from a survey of more than 1.2 million U.S. adults. After noting the connection between exercise and improved mental health, researchers were intrigued to find that more wasn’t better when it came to mental health. Those who worked out for around 45 minutes at a time seemed to get better results than those who indulged in marathon workouts.
