The size and shape of two brain regions involved in emotion and motivation may differ in young adults who smoke marijuana at least once a week, according to a new study. The findings suggest that recreational marijuana use may lead to previously unidentified brain changes, and highlight the importance of research aimed at understanding the long-term effects of low to moderate marijuana use on the brain.

Procrastination and impulsivity:  two sides of a coin?http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/04/140407101718.htm
Procrastination and impulsivity are genetically linked, suggesting that the two traits stem from similar evolutionary origins, according to new research. The research indicates that the traits are related to our ability to successfully pursue and juggle goals.

"Mood Repair Motivation" and temporal focus

A new article finds that there’s more to stress eating than simply emotion; in fact, thinking about the future may help people make better food choices.

I love this article. I used to be an emotional eater & have spent the last few years focusing on developing habits & techniques that enable me to make healthy decisions with food independent from my mood. It's hard but worth it. Thanks!
