We found some GREAT new advice on how to get in shape quickly. We’re just not sure if you should take it. Ready? Just . . . quit your job.
A new study out of Sydney University in Australia found a good way to get healthy is to stop WORKING. They found that people who retired got an extra 93 minutes of exercise every week . . . spent 67 fewer minutes every day sitting . . . and slept for 77 more minutes every night. People were also more likely to quit smoking once they stopped working, and got to spend more time on their hobbies and other stuff they actually like. The researchers say that when you stop working it, quote, “creates a great window of opportunity to make positive lifestyle changes. It’s a chance to get rid of bad routines and engineer new, healthier behaviors.”
Of course, none of this really works unless you’ve got enough money to avoid stressing out about not having a job. So, you know . . . hopefully you kept listening until I said THAT, and didn’t quit your job 45 seconds ago.
