According to a new survey, Gen Z prioritizes sleep more than previous generations – but tends to fall asleep while using their phones. The poll of 2,000 US adults of all ages found that 68% of Gen Z regularly falls asleep with phone in hand, and 47% doze off in the clothing they are wearing. Other fun findings in the survey, which included adults of all ages:
• The top things people think about to get a good night’s sleep are their favorite moments of the past day (45%), their partner or family (44%), and work (36%).
• Gen X is the least likely to fall asleep with their phone (25%).
• 22% of Gen Z turns on a fan as part of their nighttime routine – and 21% put on a sleep mask.
• 36% of millennials take showers or baths before bed.
• 38% of people describe themselves as early birds, and 22% say they are night owls.

old saying goes: “Opposites attract”. Well, maybe not.
Psychological researchers have found “no compelling evidence”
that is the case, after reviewing several million couples’ case
studies spanning back 100 years. A report from the University of
Colorado Boulder says the team analyzed more than 130 personality
traits, such as political allegiance, substance use and even sexual
history, and found that in a vast majority — between 82% and 89% of
those traits, “partners were more likely than not to be similar.”
They determined that traits such as political and religious
attitudes, level of education, and certain measures of IQ “showed
particularly high correlations.” The researchers say they hope
their findings will encourage people to “learn more about how and
why people end up in the relationships they do.”

Christine Baumgartner has been ordered to pay her estranged husband Kevin Costner $14,000 in attorneys’ fees. The ruling was handed out Wednesday after Costner’s attorney Laura Wasser argued that a series of requests for information sent to Baumgartner about the couple’s prenuptial agreement weren’t necessary. She argued that the series of filings cost the “Yellowstone” star $14,237.50, and the judge agreed. Baumgartner’s attorney also argued that there were still matters to be discussed regarding the pair’s prenup, which reportedly entitled her to more than $1 million.
