DID YOU KNOW that small acts of kindness are frequent and universal? In a study that certainly reaffirms faith in humanity, around the world, researchers revealed that people help each other about every 2 minutes. The average rates of rejection (10%) and ignoring (11%) help were much lower than the average rate of compliance (79%). To help others when needed transcends cultural differences, suggesting that, deep down, people from all cultures have more similar cooperative behaviors than prior research has established. The findings in Scientific Reports suggest that being helpful is an ingrained reflex in the human species. What a welcome finding!

Sleep Supports Weight, Immunity, and Longevity
Steve: Not that you need to be reminded about how important sleep is, but I could not help sharing these recent studies with you. People who had higher scores for sleep health, based on regularity, satisfaction, alertness, timing, efficiency and duration, during a 12-month weight loss program were more likely to follow the caloric intake and exercise components of the program in comparison to peers who scored lower for sleep health. The research was presented at the American Heart Association's Epidemiology, Prevention, Lifestyle & Cardiometabolic Health Scientific Sessions 2023. Sleeping too little or too much can be problematic for your immune system. Researchers in Frontiers in Psychiatry found that patients who reported sleeping too little or too much were more likely to report a recent infection, and patients who experienced chronic sleep problems were more likely to report needing antibiotics. The "sweet spot" for sleep quantity is 6 to 8 hours. Getting good sleep can play a role in supporting your heart and overall health, and maybe even how long you live, according to research presented at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session. The study found that young people who have more beneficial sleep habits are incrementally less likely to die early. Moreover, the data suggest that about 8% of deaths from any cause could be attributed to poor sleep patterns.
