Eating disorders and depression in athletes: does one lead to the other?

 - 

Sport is a proven contributor to high self-esteem, confidence, positive outlook and good health.  It would be reasonable to assume then that athletes have higher than average protection from depression and dysfunctional eating?  On the contrary, athletes are considered three times more likely to develop an eating disorder and there is strong empirical evidence linking eating disorders and depression. Previous research to determine causality between the two conditions has been conflicting.  In the study, “Eating psychopathology as a risk factor for depressive symptoms in a sample of British athletes” in the Journal of Sport Sciences,  Shanmugam, Jowett & Meyer ask does depression lead to eating disorders in athletes or vice versa?

Research Indicates Internet Browsing Can Improve Millennials’ Attention to Workplace Tasks

 - 

“Workplace Internet Leisure Browsing,” a recent research article out of Australia and published in Human Performance (Routledge), is the first to empirically test the theory of Workplace Internet Leisure Browsing (WILB), its effectiveness in restoring overall attention to workplace tasks, and attitudes toward workplace Internet browsing among differing age groups.  The implication of this dual study is that short breaks that include non-work related Internet browsing can potentially improve younger workers’ (under the age of 30) attention to work tasks.

A special issue of the British Journal of Guidance & Counselling has been published as a contribution towards the work that is needed to fill this information gap.
