In a recent study by the New England Journal of Medicine, scientists found that if everyone reduced their salt intake by a half a teaspoon per day, there would be between 54,000 and 99,000 fewer heart attacks each year and between 44,000 and 92,000 fewer deaths. Wow, that’s pretty startling. Makes you rethink that extra shake at dinner, huh?

I recently came across an article written by Glamour's Editor-in-Chief, Cindi Levine, on the Huffington Post about a sleep challenge. Basically, there are hundreds in agreement that they just don't get enough. We all have our personal "enough's": - six hours may be enough for you, while for me?
