• A 20-minute kettlebell workout burns a whopping 400 calories[1]. That’s right, four hundred. So, to help you jump on the calorie-burning kettlebell bandwagon, here: seven killer kettlebell exercises that will whip you into tip-top shape. [POPSUGAR Fitness[2]]

• Don’t trust everything you read on the Internet, people. Case in point: five DIY Pinterest skin tips experts say are actually awful ideas. [Refinery29[3]]

• The perfect excuse to eat a bite of dark chocolate this afternoon: A new study found dark chocolate increased alertness and attentiveness in participants. [Yahoo Health[4]]
