To Health With It: Popular diets to torture yourself with in 2014

We’re all trying to stay positive and say that spring is right around the corner, which is good. There’s nothing wrong with a little delusion. But that means everyone will be looking for the newest health craze or diet to get them on the fast track to a stunning beach bod. So I’m here to break down some popular ones.

Are You Asleep Yet?

There’s a good chance you’re reading this because you wish you were asleep, or at the very least, sleepy. That short break from consciousness that helps us replenish our life force and prepare for another day of noise, routines, and Netflix marathons. But the “Good night’s Sleep” is an elusive thing these days.

This is exactly what no one looks like when they're sleeping

Sleeping is one of the only things I can think of that is involuntary and that so many people are bad at. It’s something the body requires, but at the same time refuses to make easy. It should be simple. Lay down in bed in “jammies” and close eyes. That’s all it should take. I’d like a show of hands of everyone that falls asleep that easily:
