SURVEYS, STUDIES & SUCH: Brought to you by

What was the most intense moment of your life…so far? The survey results are in, and according to a poll of 2,000 adults in the UK, life’s most intense moments include getting married, meeting your celebrity crush and watching a team play a make-or-break match. Respondents said they experience, on average, 11 of these situations each year, and others that ranked high on the list include: moving, going through a breakup, and getting a promotion. Other nail-biting experiences: Buying a property, getting a pet, falling over in public, and sending a message to the wrong group chat. 57% said they enjoy these moments, and only 8% said they don’t. By the way, #14 on the list was “Watching a sex scene in a TV show/film with your parents/children.”

NYU Scientists say they have discovered what makes hair go gray as we age, an essential step in finding a way to stop or reverse the process. A new study published in Nature suggests that hair may go gray due to stem cells “glitching out” and becoming stuck. When this happens, the hair cannot mature and thus cannot maintain its color.

There has been no communication between Prince Harry and Prince William in the lead-up to their father’s coronation, says a Palace insider. According to a People story, the relationship between the brothers remains tense as the 2 are set to reunite at the coronation of King Charles. Although Buckingham Palace announced last week that the Duke of Sussex will attend his father’s crowning ceremony on May 6, the rift between him and the rest of the royal family remains — evidenced by Prince Harry not seeing King Charles or Prince William during his surprise visit to London last month. The souce is quoted as saying: “Things are strained” and Harry’s participation in the historic event will do little to ease tensions.

Here’s the newest “modern-day malady”: Digital hoarding. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorder defines digital hoarding — a subtype of hoarding disorder – as one that “involves the collection of, and difficulty parting with, excessive amounts of digital material.” And experts say it’s a growing problem. Do any of these stats ring a bell?

The average person has at least 40 apps installed on their phone — but uses less than 50% of them.

Financial instability can definitely have a negative effect on relationships. But a financial upswing can also pose challenges in marriages and long-term partnerships. Coming into a life-changing amount of money, from a lottery win, inheritance, or scoring a dream job can make couples frazzled by all the doors that extra cash will open up. Susan Bradley, a certified financial planner and the founder of Sudden Money Institute, says once the basics are covered, the choice to spend money is less about practicality and more about priorities, and those priorities don’t always match up. At the Sudden Money Institute, Bradley ferries clients through this situation all the time, and says many of them “believe rich people are no good, and now I’m one of them.” Bradley says decisions like buying a fancy house, or sending the kids to a private school can cause stress – and it takes most couple about 5-6 years to make the proper transition…if they’re still together by then.

In Italy a man snatched a gold chain from around a woman’s neck and sprinted away down the street. He didn’t get very far, however. He stuffed the chain in his mouth as he ran and as he began to breathe harder he sucked the necklace down his windpipe and fell choking to the ground. Luckily for him the cops were close behind and gave him the Heimlich maneuver before arresting him.

These methods of alleviating stress, which can wreak havoc on both your mental and physical health…

1. Be Active: This is at the top of most experts’ lists, and it can involve anything from yoga to a formal workout to simply taking walks to get into nature. Whatever your choice, carving out time for physical activity benefits both your mind and body. (Does running around all day avoiding work count?)

2. Meditation & Deep Breathing Exercises: These go hand in hand, as many forms of meditation require that a person focus on their breathing. Research confirms the calming effects of meditation and deep breathing exercises. (You expect me to do 2 things at once? Stressful!)

3. Connect With Others: Keeping to yourself can be detrimental to your health. It’s best to connect with others, whether to get your thoughts into the open or just to vent. Having a support structure of friends and family is one of the easiest ways to alleviate stress. (On the other hand, have you ever met MY family?)

4. Healthy Diet: Healthy food is the answer to many of life’s ailments. With the prevalence of fast food, maintaining a healthy diet isn’t easy. But it’s true: what a person eats affects both the mind and body. (You are what you eat. Funny, though, I don’t remember eating a big disappointment…!)

5. Laugh More Often: Tons of research has shown that laughing benefits your health. Even if you’re not able to laugh with family or friends, you can always throw on that funny flick that gets you every time…and laugh the stress away.
