Destroying the Universe by Cleaning Your Room

If ever you needed an excuse to not tidy your bedroom, just keep in mind that by doing so, you are contributing to the heat death of the universe. Really.

According to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, entropy (disorder) always increases. In other words, things tend to get more disorganised and chaotic during reactions. For example, cutting down a tree into smaller chunks is increasing disorder. Continue reading “Destroying the Universe by Cleaning Your Room”

HIIT Fitness Challenge: Day 30

Okay, I know that yesterday was meant to be Day 30 of the Neila Rey HIIT Fitness Challenge but I was really sick and spent the day in bed.

HIIT Fitness Challenge: Day 25

I mean… er… Day 25¬†for me, because I¬†actually did Day 26‘s workout. The reason I swapped the days is because the workout I did this morning was much shorter (less than 7 mins in total including 1 minute rests between rounds with no warm up) and I needed to do it as early as I could as I’m going to be away from home all day after this. I find it harder doing high knees (Day 25’s challenge) before breakfast than I do with planks (Day 26). Continue reading “HIIT Fitness Challenge: Day 25”
