What’s your number? Seems when it comes to how many partners we’ve had, men and women aren’t that different. According to Match.com’s Singles in America survey, the average heterosexual single has had sex with five people in their lifetime.

Have a latte before lying down …According to a new study, having coffee before bedtime will not keep you up. Having alcohol before bed, on the other hand, will mess with your sleep. Yep, seems counter-intuitive, since coffee is a stimulant and booze is a depressant, but researchers at Florida Atlantic University found that drinking a cup of coffee four hours before bedtime was not found to affect sleep quality. The study found, however, that having alcohol within four hours of going to sleep did lead to worse sleep quality. And if you’re a smoker, listen up. The research found that nicotine was especially bad for sleep length and quality, and its effects are worse if you have insomnia. (The Ladders)

According to the study, 20% of young teens needed glasses in 2012, but it jumped to 35% in 2018. Two-thirds of those who need glasses were diagnosed as near-sighted. (SWNS)

Want a quick way to be happier? Compliment someone else. Yep, complimenting someone not only makes them feel better – but it lifts your spirits as well. According to Professor Nick Haslam of the University of Melbourne, “Giving compliments is arguably better than receiving them, just as giving gifts or contributing to charity has benefits to the giver.” One catch … the compliment has to be genuine.
