According to Blumberg, there's a relationship between how much time it takes for someone to reply and how many feelings they have towards you. If someone really likes you or even has a crush on you, they'll reply to you quickly. If someone doesn't like you, they'll take more time to respond to your messages.
He says that the reason we constantly check our phones for a reply is because, in today's world, we're dealing with incoming stimuli, which basically means we're always alert because of the constant, quick world we live in. We're not used to things being delayed these days, and so it makes us anxious when someone doesn't respond straight away.

Recently, I've started running with a friend and so she recommended I talk about running. It's something more people are doing now, especially in the morning because people feel that it sets them for the day, in terms of giving them energy to get them through the day.
As well as that, my friend insists that it motivates you, making you want to be more productive and inspired throughout the day. Both running and jogging are equally good for you as they're forms of aerobic exercises, meaning they combine oxygen with blood glucose and body fat to produce energy needed.
Here are some quick tips for beginners, like myself, to consider:
Before you start running, do 30 minutes of walking per session, to build yourself up for running. Like me, if you naturally walk everywhere instead of drive or take a bus, then you can probably skip this tip.
Then, aim to do 30 minutes of walking and jogging when you feel ready, which will then set you up for running and jogging more intensely.
Make sure you warm up and stretch before and after any walk, jog or run.
Make sure you run with a bottle a water and drink plenty throughout your session.
And finally, have at least two rest days between sessions to avoid injuring yourself.
Q) Do you exercise? If so, what exercise do you do and what's your routine?
Q) Do you think there's a problem with people not being fit, in Britain?
The most recent statistic I could find was one from 2014 which said that, results for 2014 showed 61.7% of adults were overweight or obese (65.3% of men and 58.1% of women). That number is slowly rising, too.
