The last few months have seen me hitting the gym again preeetty damn hard and I don't know what I was doing before, tbh. One way of summing it up is: "'I really regret that workout' said no one ever." And it's sooo true.

Because the thing is it's far more than just our bodies which improve in the process (although that's for suuure a bonus) but our minds and our moods, too.

It’s been the leading form of contraception for the last 55 years, with around 100 million women worldwide using it. And we fought freaking hard for our right to take it. But recent conversation around the pill has been pretty scary.
A new study found that the pill might actually change our brain structure, affecting the areas that help us regulate emotions. It might also make men who would otherwise be seen as unattractive appear to be good candidates for boyfriends, husbands, etc.
