In today’s WIN, we discuss I-Bonds, Power Naps, Memoirs From The Grocery Store, The Debt-Pain Connection, PR’s...How Far Is Too Far, and Is Obesity Contagious?
We start the show by discussing Black Friday and why we don’t like it while acknowledging why some people like it. The team also discusses Thanksgiving and what we all did. Gary also shared that he completed 1000 days on Lose It and immediately switched to Noom.
Sarah encourages all of us to take naps. We discuss the value of taking naps. She also shares with us when and how long naps should be. Naps can improve the quality of our sleep along with mood, reaction time, and more.
A woman running a marathon had an “accident” in her pants during the race and decided to keep running because she was trying to get a new personal record. We discuss whether or not we would do the same and if anyone should do this.
Peter had a bizarre encounter at the grocery store. A woman approached him and asked him why he was buying a certain yogurt. He then went on to give her an entire lecture about nutrition and his approach to it.
A recent 12,000 person study looked at how the behavior of our social circles can impact our own. The study showed that having obese friends will make it more likely for you to be obese. The team discusses why this happens and how we can use this to help ourselves and others.
Gary talks about how I-Bonds can be used for short-term savings. The current return on I-Bonds is 7.12% which is way better than most savings accounts. We discuss who and what they may be good for and how to buy them.
Gary discusses a study that looked at the relationship between unsecured debt and pain. As expected, people with more unsecured debt also were more likely to report higher levels of pain. We discuss the reasons why this may happen.
