  • Feeling down? Go climb a rock. A new study has found that rock climbing helps to reduce stress and can also help with feelings of depression. Seems bouldering requires you to be in the moment and not focus on anything else but your next move – which helps clear your mind of other things going on in your life. Researchers also found that participants had a high sense of accomplishment after their rock climbing sessions. (MedicalNewsToday)

  • Undress for success? A Belgian university is catching heat after an administrator suggested a dress code for female medical students at their upcoming graduation ceremony – and it involves wearing as little as possible. An e-mail sent to all the women getting degrees read, "From an aesthetic point of view, it is better for young women to wear a dress or skirt, and a nice revealing neckline.” Men were simply told to wear a suit for the ceremony. After a huge outcry, the dean of the Free University of Brussels said he was shocked and disapproved of the "advice."

  • You're not getting older, you're getting hotter. If you think you're past your sexual peak, think again. A new study conducted by Natural Cycles found that women don't even really get into the groove until they turn 36. The survey of 2500 women found that those past that age were far more likely to reach "the big O" on a regular basis - with 58% saying they regularly hit the mark. That's a full 10% higher than women in their twenties. (New York Post)
