Read more Health magazine

Have you ever wondered if what you know about health magazine is accurate? Consider the following paragraphs and compare what you know to the latest info on health magazine.

I enjoy cleavage as much or even more than the next guy. However, after reading my latest issue of Men’s Health magazine, I checked my Encarta dictionary and looked up the word “cleavage”.

There is business science in “them der hills”, namely the division or splitting of something, and last but not least, “the hollow visible between the breasts of a woman wearing a low cut garment”.

Suffice to say, I was very relieved that I had not been bastardizing the use of the word cleavage all these years. But it is never to late right?

Why mess up such a beautiful word as cleavage by coining a new term, “Corporate Cleavage”? Well, if I am not thinking about “my wife’s cleavage”, I am definitely always focused on business.

The two words together can describe a business or corporation in such an accurate way.

It's really a good idea to probe a little deeper into the subject of health magazine. What you learn may give you the confidence you need to venture into new areas.

For the mean time think corporate exposure or effective marketing. A corporation these days doesn’t want to cross the line and expose too much, or too little, about their business or product.

They simply want to get just enough exposure, to get enough interest to keep the shareholders happy.

I am convinced that the current over-emphasis on quantity is one of the main reasons there are still so many sports and fitness related injuries. Sometimes it comes from the athlete him or herself - perhaps reflecting a common cultural idea that more is better. Sometimes it comes from outside. That certainly seems to be a large part of what’s going on with some young athletes today.

Anyone who studies the basic ideas of the Alexander Technique will very quickly see just how important the quality of one’s posture and movement is to the effectiveness and safety of any activity. This is true whether it’s a vigorous activity or something as mundane as using a computer or even watching TV. And if they decide to take up a new sport or fitness program, they have the knowledge and ability to approach it with skill, and with an appropriate level of body awareness and care.

(The article, “Doctors See a Big Rise in Injuries As Young Athletes Train Nonstop” can be found on page 1 of the February 22, 2005 issue of the New York Times.)

Of course, it's impossible to put everything about health magazine into just one article. But you can't deny that you've just added to your understanding about health magazine, and that's time well spent.
