Research Shows Sitting Can Kill You

People who sit most of the day have a 54 percent greater risk of heart attack than those who spend a good chunk of the day standing.

Hawaii Named Happiest State in the US

Hawaii was the country's happiest state in 2010.

This according to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, which takes into account emotional health, physical health, healthy behaviors, and job satisfaction.
