YOUNGER SKIN THROUGH EXERCISE. “Exercise not only appears to keep skin younger, it may also even reverse skin aging in people who start exercising late in life, according to surprising new research.”

A phenomenon I’ve seen frequently in new law-professor hires who come for practicing law is that they seem to reverse-age for the first year or two here, even though being a new law professor is actually fairly stressful — my first year of teaching I was working more hours than I had as an associate at Dewey Ballantine. But you have much, much more control over your daily schedule, which I think is a big deal. It may be that because of this, people are better able to exercise. But, then, sleep, diet, and such all play a role, too, and all are likely to be better among law professors than practicing lawyers, especially those at big firms.
