1. Become a Trailblazer: The great outdoors offer just as good a workout as any gym. "First thing I would say is check out Trails.com," the fitness expert recently told us. "It'll give you great running, biking and jogging trails and then, of course, you can do all of those things."
2. Hit the Playground: Playgrounds aren't just for whipping video-game addicted kids into shape. "Go to even a kids' playground and you can run sprint trails and suicides and you can do pull-ups on the jungle gym."
3. Take a Dive: If you like a little variety in your fitness regimen, you can get creative and take your workout off dry land. "Get outside and go kayaking, paddle boarding or take surfing lessons if there is a body of water in your immediate vicinity." Not only will a change-up work new muscles, but it will prevent you from getting into a rut and possibly ditching your routine altogether.

This is a Men's Health article that teaches you how to "gamify" your life. Take the tasks that seem ordinary and turn them into a game to make them more interesting. Here's how:
Angelina Jolie underwent a preventive double mastectomy after learning she carries a gene which sharply increases her risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer.
This is what she wrote in a NY Times article today:
"My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman," Jolie wrote. "Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy."
Jolie's mother died of ovarian cancer 6-years ago at the age of 56
Jolie said she finished three months of medical procedures on April 27th which included the mastectomies and reconstruction.
"I wanted to write this to tell other women that the decision to have a mastectomy was not easy. But it is one I am very happy that I made,"
She goes into great detail about the procedures in the op-ed article which you can here
