Feel guilty about watching trashy TV? Only watch it when you exercise.
Building habits is like training a dog--you want to reward yourself for a job well done. But there's nothing that says you have to enjoy that reward after your "good behavior". Another technique, called "Temptation bundling," lets you enjoy your reward while you build that habit, and it can be a very powerful tool.

+Tom Wisniewski More screens rather than more windows? Sounds like a First Cabin problem.

So they don't all wear fedoras and carry bullwhips? 
With archaeology serving as a backdrop to old-fashioned adventure stories, you probably have some diverse images of what it means to be an archaeologist in mind. The truth, unsurprisingly, is less about treasure hunting and more about the methodic analysis of historical sites.

An emergency fund is a good idea, but when it's depleted, what do you do? (Even if you don't have one, there are some useful tips to help you rebuild your finances after a big money sink:) 
Years ago, I switched careers and moved to a new city. Financially, I felt safe, because I had a small emergency fund. If times got tough, that was my safety net. Times did get tough. In one instant, I lost everything. If you've depleted your emergency fund, here's how to go about rebuilding it.

Real problem, or technophobic nonsense?
Dear Lifehacker, Is it possible for someone to actually be addicted to the Internet? I mean, we all love our phones, and maybe I check mine whenever it buzzes, but is that the same as being addicted to alcohol or drugs? I've heard of people being so addicted to video games that they forgot to eat or feed their kid. How much of it is real psychology and how much is technophobic hype?

Addicted to the internet, no.
Addicted to their device and the constant tiny little shots of dopamine, absolutely.

Neuroscience is neuroscience... It's not a question of "is it a problem," it's a question of "how large of a problem is it really?"

They don't last forever.
A decent surge protector is an important piece of equipment in any office or entertainment center. They don't last forever, though, so make sure you take the time and purge your surge on occasion to keep your electronics protected.

If you think quinoa is high in protein, or coconut water hydrates you better than anything else, we've got news for you.
Sometimes a food becomes trendy based on health claims that, as it turns out, the food can't really support. Here's a look at a few superfoods that aren't so super--and suggest some alternatives that are healthier, cheaper, or both.
