#NEAT:Can Buying Groceries Online Help You Lose Weight?..The Age When People Start Hating Their Job Is . . . 35
Can Buying Groceries Online Help You Lose Weight?
HIGHLIGHTS: A recent study found that having groceries delivered might help you lose weight. When you’re walking around a store, you’re constantly tempted to buy junk food. But when you shop online, you have to search for specific products.
FULL STORY: More people are buying groceries online through services like Amazon Fresh. Even some grocery stores are delivering now. Some people think it’s just a lazy Millennial thing. But it turns out it might also help you lose weight . . .
Researchers at the University of Albany released a study this month that found you’re less likely to make IMPULSE purchases when you shop online. That usually means things like chips, candy, and other junk food.
They had college students rate how impulsive they think they are. Then they gave them about $50 in virtual currency, and had them shop for groceries online.
Across the board, they made healthier choices than when people shop at a grocery store. And how impulsive they were didn’t matter. Even the most impulsive ones didn’t buy much junk food.
Which kind of makes sense. You’re constantly tempted to buy stuff while you’re walking around a store. But when you shop online, you have to search for SPECIFIC products you want to buy.
So it might be good for your waistline, and it might put less strain on your wallet too.
The Age When People Start Hating Their Job Is . . . 35
HIGHLIGHTS: The age when people are most likely to start HATING their job is . . . 35. A new study found that one in six people over 35 say they’re unhappy at work . . . which is double the number of younger people who feel that way.
FULL STORY: Have you had that moment where you’re sitting at work, it seems like every other day, and suddenly you stop . . . take a look around . . . and say, “Oh my God. THIS is my life?”
HERE’S when that moment happens.
According to a new study out of England, the age when people are most likely to start hating their job is . . . 35.
The researchers found that about one in six people age 35 and up say they’re completely unhappy at work.
That’s more than double the number of younger people who feel that way.
Why? One of the researchers says in your mid 30s, quote, “There comes a time when either you haven’t achieved success, work has burned you out, or experience tells you family is more important. So you ask yourself: ‘What am I doing this for?'”
