SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

More than half of employees say they’re stressed at work every day, according to a poll. With that in mind, it’s good to know there is an effective, scientifically proven tool we can use in our daily lives to combat that feeling. And that is…Microbreaks! Research consistently shows that if we can build time to reset and recharge, we can interrupt the sort of cumulative stress that leads to burnout. A recent North Carolina State University study found that employees’ energy increased after just a 5-minute break. And so did the likelihood they would set and achieve work goals. Another study, in the Journal of Applied Psychology, found that call center workers who took micro-breaks experienced a mood boost that translated into better sales performance. And even short breaks between meetings have been found to help employees stay focused and energized, stopping cumulative stress from building up and giving workers’ brains a chance to “reset.”

The average person spends more than an entire work week per year simply purchasing beverages such as coffee at the café during the workday, according to a new survey. The poll of on-site employees found it takes about 16 minutes to leave one’s desk, buy a drink and return. And with 3 such trips a week, employees end up losing about 50 working hours per year. And the money spent on beverages also adds up. At the work café, the average American buys about 2½ drinks, totaling about $16 per visit. That equals about $2,800 a year.


Don’t expect to see Arnold Schwarzenegger turn up in any future “Terminator” movies. In a new Hollywood Reporter profile, the strongman says that while the movie series is “largely responsible for” his success,” it has moved on without him. In the article, Schwarzenegger declares: “The franchise is not done. I’m done.” He said that he “got the message loud and clear that the world wants to move on with a different theme when it comes to The Terminator. (But) someone has to come up with a great idea.” On the positive side, when it comes to his future, the 75-yar-old said: “My plan is to live forever.”

General Hospital” star Haley Pullos was arrested for an alleged DUI in California following a major crash on a Pasadena highway. Pullos, who has starred on the long-running ABC soap opera as ‘Molly Lansing-Davis’ since 2009, was arrested for felony DUI while recovering in hospital following the April 29 crash, according to a police report. Cops say she suddenly swerved and flew over the barrier into oncoming traffic, eventually colliding head-on with another vehicle. Pullos had to be freed from her vehicle by firefighters and was then placed in an ambulance, where she became violent, striking a firefighter in the head and allegedly yelling, “this s a $400 (freaking) shirt.”

Kim Kardashian is looking ahead, with some good grades behind her. (No pun intended…) Kimmy K got straight A’s on her latest law school midterms. While promoting her latest shapewear popup in New York’s Rockefeller Center, Kardashian gave the “Today” show an update on her law school progress, saying: “I’m still studying. I’m actually in constitutional law 1 and 2 right now….I took a midterm yesterday. I got 100%, and then I got a 95% on my other midterm. What comes next? The bar exam, which she hopes to take in the next year, “and be done.”

Kim Kardashian admits that parenting is one of the “most challenging” things in her life, and sometimes she cries herself to sleep, because of the chaos inolved. In the “On Purpose with Jay Shetty” podcast, the reality star, who shares 2 daughters and 2 sons with ex-husband Kanye West, called the joys of parenting “full madness” at times. Quote: “Everyone says the days are long and the years are short, and that couldn’t be like a more true statement. When you’re in it, I mean, especially when they’re babies and you’re feeding, there’s madness going on. It’s like full madness. It’s the best chaos though.” The 42-year-old went on to note that “parenting is the thing that has taught me the most about myself.”

SCOOP OF THE DAY: Brought to you by

If it’s your thing to sleep in on the weekend in an effort at making up for sleep lost during another hectic work-week, I’ve got bad news for you: It doesn’t work. Dr. Lindsay Browning, who is a neurologist, psychologist, and sleep expert, says being sleep-deprived and then relying on the weekend to recover, may help in the short term, but in the long run, the extra rest may create a false sense of recovery. And what’s more, trying to catch up on the weekend may make things worse. She says that research has shown that it can take up to 4 days to recover one hour of lost sleep and up to 9 days to fully recover from sleep deprivation.

Swapping that soda for a diet option, or adding sweetener to your coffee may not be the best choice for weight loss after all. The World Health Organization Has released new guidelines warning us not to use non-sugar sweeteners for weight loss, because it may do more harm than good. New findings showed that artificial sweeteners — like aspartame, a sugar substitute found in Diet Coke — don’t do much to reduce your waistline. And long-term use of these fake sugars could increase your risk for Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and even death.

Here’s the latest bizarre food mash-up: Velveeta – known for the melty goodness of its golden cheese – has gotten together with chocolate company Compartés Chocolatier to create the first-ever chocolate cheese truffle. Given the name “TruffVels,” these truffles combine cheese and chocolate, using Compartés sweet white chocolate, coupled with Velveeta cheese. The truffle takes on the iconic custom shell shape, and is infused with Velveeta molten cheese sauce.

Watermelon: It can protect vascular function if you consume a lot of sugar, thanks to its amino acids.

Kale: Yup. It HAD to be kale. Leafy greens in general are good for you, but kale has an abundance of heart-friendly nutrients, including potassium, fiber, folate and calcium, and can lower bad cholesterol.

Oats: They also lower bad (LDL) cholesterol. Also rich in antioxidants, which helps protect from heart disease. (Until you cover it in sugar, that is…)

Avocado: Contains healthy fats which help protect the heart by maintaining levels of ‘good’ cholesterol and reducing levels of LDL cholesterol. Plus, avocados contain many nutrients which benefit the heart and cardiovascular system. (A ‘toast’ to avocados!)

Dark chocolate: You’ve heard this before. It is high in flavonoids – also found in tea, leafy vegetables and citrus fruits – which act as antioxidants and have powerful anti-inflammatory effects, and can improve blood vessel function and lower blood pressure.
