They don’t call it the “most important meal of the day” for nothing. Young people who eat healthy breakfasts at home have better psychosocial health (which means involving both psychological and social aspects), according to a recent study in Frontiers in Nutrition. The team of researchers, using data from the 2017 Spanish Health Survey of almost 4,000 people aged 4-14, found that eating breakfast away from home is nearly as detrimental as skipping the meal entirely. While previous research has reported the important role of a nutritious breakfast, this is the first study to look at the reported effects of whether kids eat breakfast, as well as where and what they eat. The authors suggest the findings may be because meals away from home are frequently less nutritious than those prepared at home. The results showed that coffee, milk, tea, chocolate, cocoa, yogurt, bread, toast, cereals, and pastries are all associated with lower chances of behavioral problems. Surprisingly, eggs, cheese, and ham were linked with higher risks of such issues.

Weeks after Airbnb said it would permanently ban parties at properties rented through its platform, the company is deploying so-called “anti-party technology” in the US and Canada to enforce the measure. The new system analyzes a variety of factors, including previous reviews, how long a user has been on the platform, the length of the stay and whether the rental is occurring on a weekend or weekday. The goal, according to Airbnb, is to “help identify potentially high-risk reservations” and prevent those users from completing a booking. Those who are unable to book homes because of the anti-party tech will have the option to reserve a hotel room or a private room (where the owner is likely to be present) through the platform.

Imagine being invited to a wedding – and then, in the words of Alanis, being “uninvited”. Despite the fact that pandemic lockdowns are a thing of the past (at least for now…), it seems some soon-to-be-married couples have returned to the concept of the “microwedding” – and inflation is to blame. Couples blindsided by wedding budgets that have blown up by as much as 100% are scrambling to economize by any means possible in order to contend with the highest inflation in 40 years – and in some cases, that means downsizing their plans, and asking people that they had previously invited to share their big day, NOT to come. The Knot, which conducts an annual survey on wedding trends, found that nearly half the couples who were married last year reduced their guest count, and inflation has only continued to climb since. These days, couples are haggling more, searching for less-expensive substitutes for everything from entrees to engagement rings, and cutting costs any way they can.

Perhaps you need this on a Monday — these are the results of compiling a number of studies that looked at the ever-elusive quest not only for success at work, but success in personal contentment…

1. Agreeableness: It can improve your job performance, and your state of mind. (It’s also a sign of intelligence. Tell that to a politician sometime!)

2. Who you know: 4 in 5 people agree that no matter how hard they work, others with better business connections have the advantage. (On the other hand, I believe I have a DISadvantage if someone knows ME…)

3. Reconnecting to work: It’s important to disconnect from work at the end of the day, but just as important to head into work the next day with the right mindset for a productive day.

4. Playing video games: Yup. A study found that nearly half of people credit many of their successes in life to playing video games. (Is there a chance that the ONLY success these people have ever had was in playing video games?)

5. Exercising a lot: Those who work out 4-7 times per week report much higher levels of happiness (75% vs. 25%) and success (74% vs. 26%) then those who work out 1-3 times per week. (That’s a LOTTA laundry, though…)

6. Being unsuccessful: A study of small business owners found that being unsuccessful is an important part in learning how to become successful. (Nailed it!)

7. Money: Research shows that when one views wealth and material possessions as measures of success, they enjoy greater levels of satisfaction. But viewing money as a direct source of happiness doesn’t bring the same effect.

8. Checking your email less: Office workers are a lot more productive when they are interrupted fewer times each day by checking email. (‘Splain that to the boss next time he asks why you haven’t responded to his urgent email yet…)

9. Owning a pet: People who own pets are happier, earn more money, and exercise more frequently than those who don’t. (They’re also known to clean their carpet more often…)

10. Supportive relationships: People who have strong, supportive relationships feel more confident in themselves and are more prone to personal growth.

11. Keeping your eyes on the prize: This is about being patient and able to save money toward a goal, rather than spending all you have right now for instant gratification. (Tried that once. Worst 15 minutes of my life!)

A boss has given all his 431 employees a handsome pay rise to help them with Britain’s sky-rocketing energy bills. Daron Hutt, managing director at phone system company 4Com, generously gave staff a £200 (US $236) monthly pay increase to address the inflation many of his employees were battling with. He said of what he’s calling the “Energy Support Bonus”: “We’re in a position where we can help offset some of the price rises that are clearly coming.” It was predicted last month that energy bills would continue to spike above £2,000 (US $2,363).

If picking a playlist was step #1 for you when you were getting set to study, you’re more likely to have had a high GPA. A survey of 2,000 people looked at the link between music and study habits — and found those who played music were likelier to have a GPA above 3.2 than those who studied in silence (84% vs. 78%). Results showed that half of respondents recall regularly listening to music while studying (49%), and 60% felt better able to study with something playing in the background. This percentage is even higher among younger students.

The modern person leaves behind an online trail of 9,828 photos, 10,811 social media posts, and 126 email addresses over their lifetime. A OnePoll survey of 2,000 adults revealed that the average person shares over a third of their life online (36%) — which is still viewable long after they die. Researchers found that the average adult shares 276 posts on Instagram, 170 on Facebook, and 141 tweets every year. That amounts to 17,369 (Insta), 10,680 (F-book), and 8,911 (Twitter), respectively, over the average lifetime.

When he’s not fighting Vecna, Noah Schnapp is protecting those in his city against another danger: drowning. The “Stranger Things” star has revealed that he has a part time job working as a lifeguard at his local pool. He told Flaunt that his part-time gig is “kind of a just-for-fun-thing.” While Schnapp is aware that he doesn’t exactly need this job, the 17-year-old feels it’s important for him to live like any other person his age. While he feels that he has grown up with a more-or-less “normal life and normal friends and stuff outside of Stranger Things,” the job serves to help keep him grounded. It’ll come to an end soon enough, though, as he has plans to head to the University of Pennsylvania this fall.

☞ “My college roommate had the ugliest ancient brown Toyota station wagon with a broken ignition, loud transmission, & mismatched doors. She lost the keys but could unlock & start it with a bent fork she stole from the cafeteria. We called it Mr Potato Car.”

☞ “I bought a 1981 Plymouth Horizon Miser back in ’84. It got to a point where the doors didn’t open from the outside, I had to crawl through the hatchback to get in…when I was 8 months pregnant.”

☞ “the wipers were broken. i tied strings to them & pulled on them when it rained. Sucked to be alone in bad weather.”

☞ “My car alarm would randomly go off as I was driving. People mistook for me for an undercover cop and would pull off to the side of the road to let me pass.”

☞ “My dad bought me a ’78 Chevette. It had no floor boards so he just put down a piece of plywood. One day, my sister and I were cruising around town when she told me to slowly pull forward. She lifted the board and picked up a $5 bill off the road.”

☞ “My first car was a Pontiac. I thought it was the cutest car on the street until it spontaneously combusted one night like a James Bond movie right in front of the house…Brand name of the car? Fiero.”

The average person tells 4 lies per day, says a new survey. And we believe that someone lies to us about 6 times daily. How can we tell? The poll, commissioned by Online Betting Guide and conducted by OnePoll, found that 53% of Americans believe they’re good at spotting when others are lying to them. 8% think they’re poor at it. Some other takeaways from the survey:

The tell-tale signs someone might be lying are avoiding eye contact and nervously talking.

24% believe they have an excellent ‘poker face’ for when they’re telling a fib.

3% think they have a terrible poker face.

The best times to employ bluffing skills include: when playing poker (32%), when someone asks if you like what they’re wearing and you don’t (30%), and when someone makes you a horrible meal (27%).

The answer to getting bigger muscles could be “quantity over quality”. A new study found that just a little bit of exercise each day is better for the body than one intense workout session. Researchers from Australia and Japan found that just doing a handful of bicep curls each day, 5 days a week actually improves muscle strength more than continuously doing dozens of curls in a longer exercise routine once a week. And even better, they found people don’t even have to work out at full intensity to achieve these results. The scientists say that their research shows that it only takes a very manageable amount of exercise on a regular basis to produce noticeable improvements in strength.

Deep down, you already knew this, but researchers in Japan say they’ve found that your dog can cry tears of joy when you come home after work. For the study, academics at Azabu University and Jichi Medical University placed strips of paper under the eyes of the dogs during normal interaction with their owners, and again a minute before they were reunited with them after 5-7 hours of separation. They discovered when the dogs saw their owners, it was the only time they shed tears. There was not the same level of increased tear production when the dogs were reunited with other people they were familiar with, but were not their owners. Next, to see whether the tears are linked to dogs’ emotions, the researchers applied a solution containing oxytocin, a key hormone involved in bonding, to the dogs. After they used the hormone, they found the dogs’ tears significantly increased. It is believed that dogs may have evolved to produce tears so humans would better care for them, and as a way of deepening the bond with their owners.
