People Who Sleep in on the Weekend Are Less Likely to Die Young
If you sleep until noon this Saturday, you’re not being lazy . . . you’re actually EXTENDING YOUR LIFE. Maybe.
A new study out of Sweden looked at more than 38,000 people’s sleep habits. And they found that people who slept in on the weekends to catch up on some of the sleep they missed out on during the work week were less likely to DIE YOUNG.
The researchers say it’s a, quote, “tentative conclusion,” so they’re not willing to say it’s a FACT that sleeping in will keep you alive . . . but hey, it’s not like it’s a big sacrifice on your part to try it out just in case it’s right.
The Average Person Has Eight Moments of Pure Joy a Week
How often do you truly relax, and forget about all the stressful stuff going on in your life? A recent survey found the average person has 432 moments of PURE JOY a year. That’s about eight a week.
The survey asked people to name the situations where they’re most likely to feel happy and relaxed.
Here are the ten that stood out to us . . .
1. Hanging out on the couch or in bed with your significant other. It was the most common answer people gave.
2. Being on vacation, or on your way to your destination.
3. On a date, but only if you’re already in a relationship. First dates are too stressful.
4. At a friend’s barbecue, picnic, or house party.
5. When you’re outside walking your dog.
6. Meeting friends out for drinks, or watching sports at a bar.
=7. A movie night with your kids.
8. When you’re out shopping with a friend.
9. Playing video games.
10. Singing along to the radio.
