It’s not until we’re hit with a mighty bout of jetlag that many of us even consider the effect our circadian rhythm plays on our lives. From the amount of light, to what we eat, researchers have now found oxygen levels play a key role, too.

America’s best fall getaways that showcase beautiful fall colors and foliage – Sedona, Arizona, Litchfield, Bucks County and Great Smoky Mountains.
I’d like to show you the top fall destinations in the United States.
Sedona, Arizona, known for its majestic beauty, is home to winding, gorgeous hiking trails and canyons. In the fall, the trails are surrounded by stunning leaves hanging from some of the most towering trees visitors can expect to see. Serene natural water, running streams bypassing stones small and large create awe inspiring calmness. A trip through Sedona in the fall, where massive rocks, flowing waters, contrasting colors and natural beauty await, will surely make a lasting impression. Litchfield Hills, Connecticut is a quaint New England area, offering scenic fall views and charming amenities. Rolling hills, colorful tree lined countryside landscapes, and crystal clear rivers are what make this place a unique fall destination. Its beauty amazes tourists and locals alike with just a walk along one of the various trails or a drive through this historic gem.
Bucks County, Pennsylvania, is an original fall attraction. Sprawling farmlands, lakes surrounded by colorful maple and oak trees allow for an old fashioned American traveling experience. Several historic buildings yield a nostalgically attractive habitat. Bucks County houses state parks and recreation areas permitting walking or biking trips. A trip through this picturesque community provides a truly memorable autumn adventure.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park in North Carolina is a widely known and visited fall haven. Encompassed by mountain views, miles upon miles of trails, and rapidly flowing luminous water, this Park accommodates for a one of a kind, genuine experience. The park maintains several historic districts, campsites and a seemingly endless forest of trees possessing deeply pigmented leaves. The fall sights, scents, and memories that can be encountered here will unquestionably remain in one’s heart.

A new study shows that for people with type 2 diabetes, a short walk after eating may help lower blood sugar levels more than exercising at other times of the day. A measurement of blood sugar called postprandial glycemia, which has been linked with heart disease risk, averaged 12 percent lower when study participants took a walk after eating, compared with those who exercised at other times. The study’s authors found that the largest drop in postprandial glycemia, 22 percent, was achieved by walking after dinner. “If you have type 2 diabetes, there is a guideline to be active for at least 150 minutes a week,” said study author Andrew Reynolds, a researcher at the University of Otago, in New Zealand.
But, he added, “the benefits we observed due to physical activity after meals suggest that current guidelines should be amended to specify after-meal activity, particularly when meals contain a substantial amount of carbohydrates,” he said.However, one U.S. diabetes specialist offered a caveat on that advice.
Exercise is indeed part of good management and care for those with type 2 diabetes, said Dr. Joel Zonszein, director of the Clinical Diabetes Center at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City.
But, he urged caution about the benefits of exercising right after meals.
Because heart disease is common among those with type 2 diabetes, “we need to be careful in encouraging exercise after a meal, as the demands on the heart increase with meals,” he explained. “This is especially important in people with heart disease, as diversion of blood from the coronary or carotid arteries to the gut is not always best for these patients.”
