    Group of Friends Working Out Together to Reduce Stress

    Can Working Out With Your Friends Reduce Stress? Research Says Yes.

    According to a 2017 study published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association, working out in a group lowers stress by 26% and significantly improves one’s quality of life compared to those who exercise individually. We’re all for busting stress and having fun, so these statistics piqued our interest. To understand exactly why working out with friends can be better than going it alone, we dove into the science behind stress and exercise. Why is stress so bad for us?

    Heard All the Buzz About the BOTOX Lip Flip? Here’s What it Can and Can’t Do.

    Woman Loves her Youthful Neck thanks to Anti-Aging Neck Technology at Maningas Cosmetic Surgery

    Nora Ephron Hated Her Neck. We Bet She Would Have Loved this Technology.

    In the 2006 book I Feel Bad About My Neck, Nora Ephron writes candidly about the tribulations of aging—specifically, the neck. “There are scrawny necks and fat necks, loose necks, crepey necks, banded necks, wrinkled necks, stringy necks, saggy necks, flabby necks, mottled necks,” she writes of herself and her fellow women friends who she meets for lunch, all of them outfitted in neck-concealing turtlenecks and scarves. And then she points out what was, at the time, a hard truth: “[S]hort of surgery, there’s not a damn thing you can do about a neck.” Nora Ephron, we have good news: There’s a brand-new, minimally-invasive procedure that will tighten the...
