Confession time! I'm a crossfitter, I have been doing this crazy awesome fitness lifestyle for about 10 months now and what I have experienced has been crazy, but so amazing that it makes my choice to do this just that more valid.

One thing that anyone who works out regularly and keeps pushing towards new goals knows that you get sore. Some days very sore.

So I was excited to see that Cosmo magazine came out with 15 reasons you need to indulge and get a massage.

Here's the run down…

1) It's basically a painkiller. Turns out that that skin on skin contact you get from your masseur activates the same parts of the brain that opioid painkillers like codeine do.

2) It boosts your immunity. A 45 minute Swedish massage can actually gives you higher levels of blood proteins which have been linked helping protect the body from tumors, viral infections, and other pathogens.

3) It improves your flexibility. It actually helps loosen up your lower back which improves trunk flexibility which in return helps your flexibility over all. (This was apparently done as a 5 week study, I want to be one of those subjects)

4) It reduces stress. It can alleviate tension in your muscles and your mind.

5) It fends off headaches. Lots of headaches are caused by tension that restricts blood flow to the brain. If you're a chronic headache suffer, massage can help with frequency and severity of your headaches.

6) It boosts your mood. I mean come on who has heard of an upset relaxed person? It's a total contradiction of terms, but there is real science behind it. Massage ups your levels of serotonin and dopamine… The happy drugs your body naturally produces.

7) It reduces soreness. If you workout a lot and even DIY after a work out with a foam roller for just 10 minutes it lessens muscle soreness post work out. So then you won't walk like a dog in tennis shoes.

8) It warms you up before a workout. If you DIY with a foam roller before a workout it can actually help loosen muscles with out putting strain on other soft tissue.

9) It helps you know your body and its limits. Self massage in particular will help you notice tight spots before they become an injury that will affect your mobility and wellness over all.

10) It makes exercise easier. Think about it, how hard does exercise feel when your sore as opposed to when your not.

11) It may help put you to sleep. Ask any masseur and ask them how many times they have had to wake up a client.

12) It can alleviate morning stiffness. Most people wake you stiff from sleeping in an awkward position all night. A morning rub can help that.

13) It can get you through a dry spell. Get your mind out of the gutter. Remember the happy drugs you body naturally produces? Oxytocin, is also associated with bonding. So a professional massage can be fulfilling and satisfying.

14) It alleviates the strain from typing and texting. Let's face it everyone does lots of this and your forearms are probably screaming for some love.

15) It helps improve your circulation. This is where the techniques of massage come in. Swedish massage is suppose to help move blood back towards your heart causing your muscles to relax and not have to work so hard. Which this leaves you feeling refreshed.

So if you need a good reason to pamper yourself, here are 15. But let's be honest no one needs a reason to go pamper themselves every now and then.

Renée Zellweger to PEOPLE: 'I'm Glad Folks Think I Look Different'

This should go Viral. If fake stories can go viral scaring people. Then let the truth speak louder. Share this with your well meaning Grandparents, parents, and friends who seem to get their news through Facebook.

I love jokes. In fact, if you were to ask the radio station staff, they would say I am the most likely to laugh at my own jokes. I love a lot of forms of humor, including Satire. The Onion is great at satire. Satire is a mirror to hold up to society. So when I see things like this, I get mad.

This isn't satire, even though it and websites like it claim to be. This is fear mongering click bait. The "National Report" gets paid every time someone clicks on a link. Because it's ads are seen, they can show their click numbers to ad agencies and get ad buys. That's why this is bad. Because they are willing to say whatever they have to, just to get you to click through.

This isn't about Ebola. This is bigger than Ebola. This is about scaring people. This is why my mother calls me to tell me she's worried because I live in Texas, so close to the 'Outbreak.'

So, I'm going to throw on my reporter hat for a moment, and dig in to this. Who are these people that are clearly profiting off of the fear mongering? The "reporter" Jane M. Agni has her bio at the bottom of each of her "reports."

Wow, impressive. That seems like a fall though. To go from Oprah's Book Club to an online newspaper. Next, I Googled her name. I'm an awesome reporter I know. It turns out, I wasn't the only person to search for her.

I found that on the first page of Google results. Pretty close to the top. It would seem that an Oprah Book Club recommended Best Selling Author would be a little higher on that list.

Every time someone shares something that is clearly stupid and just not true and I see it, I will politely share a link to the Snopes article that completely destroys it.

So here's the deal. If you want to know the news. Don't go to Facebook. If you learn of a story on Facebook, search for it to see if ANYONE else is reporting that. Stop clicking on click bait and helping to pay people to frighten your already worried parents. And if you see someone posting this click bait, do them a favor and show them how to Google something.
