Nootropics, sometimes called smart drugs or cognitive enhancers, are drugs, supplements, and other substances that are claimed to improve cognitive function, particularly executive functions, attention, memory, creativity, or motivation, in healthy individuals.

I simply cannot get enough sleep. One part of it is going to bed later than I should because you are such an interesting bunch. One part is my dog needing to get up early to do his business. I can’t get mad at my best friend when he really does have to go long before the rooster crows. But the worst part of it is some nights the quality of my sleep is just lousy. I don’t drink during the week so it’s not that. I don’t have loud neighbors, so it isn’t that. What could it be?Read More
I’ll bet some of you are expecting an article on New Year’s resolutions. Sorry. I remember sort of being coerced into making some when I was younger and hating it. Mostly because it felt so arbitrary. Having said that, some New Year’s resolutions are sensible. Do what works for you.Read More

Need more energy? We got you. Faster recovery? Of course. More/better/faster muscle gain or weight loss? Expensive but worth it. Let’s examine those claims.Read More
I have been scratching my head trying to figure out if running aids building muscle or impedes it. By running, I mean steady state running/jogging as opposed to sprinting. This is a perennial debate in the fitness community.Read More
This week’s article is definitely an open call for comments. I do not know anything about fitness trackers. I have never used one. If you use one or have experience with them (good or bad) then tell us about it in the comments.Read More
