20 Things to Start Doing in Your Relationships | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

Family isn’t always blood.  They’re the people in your life who appreciate having you in theirs – the ones who encourage you to improve in healthy and exciting ways, and who not only embrace who you are now, but also embrace and embody who you want to be.  These people – your real family – are the ones who truly matter.

ABSI, New Obesity Measure: Better Than BMI?

ABSI, New Obesity Measure: Better Than BMI? | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
Body mass index (BMI) is a widely used indicator of obesity, but a new study suggests it may not be the best predictor of whether your weight raises your risk of death.


Researchers at The City College of New York developed a new obesity measurement tool called A Body Shape Index (ABSI) that combines BMI and waist circumference.


Waist circumference is a measure used to determine the amount of belly fat a person has.  Abdominal fat has been linked to a number of health conditions, including high cholesterol, insulin resistance and high blood pressure.

LDL Cholesterol Needed to Gain More Muscle Mass

LDL Cholesterol Needed to Gain More Muscle Mass | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

People often say, ‘I want to get rid of all my LDL cholesterol,’ but the fact is, if you did so, you would die. Everyone needs a certain amount of both LDL and HDL in their bodies. 


Low-density lipoprotein, usually referred to as LDL cholesterol, the so called “bad cholesterol”, might not be so bad after all, in particular with individuals who exercise.

Ivo Nový's insight:

Our tissues need cholesterol, and LDL cholesterol delivers it. HDL, the good cholesterol, cleans up after the repair is done. And the more LDL cholesterol you have in your blood, the better you are able to build muscle during resistance training.

Why Change Is So Hard And How To Lead And Be the Change In 5 Simple Steps

Why Change Is So Hard And How To Lead And Be the Change In 5 Simple Steps | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it

We live in a time of ever accelerating transformation and change, right? Technologies have transformed our industrial economies into services and the innovation economy. The way we communicate, stay in touch, share ideas and emotions are transforming and enriching our lives.


If “CHANGE” is the only constant in life, shouldn’t we are getting used to it? Why is change often so scary? Why do we and the people around us don´t see the opportunities, but only the risks involved in change ? 


The answer to these questions might be a simple one:  we are human.

(From the article): We’re in a world full of opportunities. Some of them look scary, but they are definitely out there to make our world a better place. Every stage of the emotional roller coaster is normal and to be expected. When you are mindful and manage the emotions consciously, you can become the change you want to see in the world.

Kimberley Richardson's curator insight, December 1, 2014 12:16 PM

What we resist, persists.  Change is a part of life and something we must embrace.  True leaders understand this.

Learn How to Learn

Learn How to Learn | Interesting Reading | Scoop.it
To be creative you have to always be learning and always trying to find ways to make learning an enjoyable game for yourself.

Knowledge is different from learning. Knowledge is a stockpile. It’s a static accumulation. It is more important to learn than to know.

Learning is not about creating a store of knowledge. To learn, the mind has to be completely free. The mind cannot learn for a purpose. It has to explore in an open ended way.
