    A BAD night’s sleep can ruin your day. When you wake up and still feel tired, you become cranky and dread the day’s work ahead. 3A sleep specialist shared her tips for ensuring you get a good night's restCredit: Getty 3It's important to take screen-free breaks throughout the dayCredit: Getty Dr. Jade Wu is a PhD and behavioral sleep medicine specialist who spoke to BuzzFeed about how a sleep cycle works, and offered tips to improve your sleep quality. While she said that good quality sleep looks different for everybody, it’s important that you have a “normal sleep architecture.” "[This means] you're getting approximately the right proportion of deep sleep versus light sleep versus REM sleep, and the vast majority of your sleep is happening at night, instead of during the day or broken up into chunks,” she explained. "It's [a type of] sleep that might not feel refreshing right away when you wake up, but generally, you should be able to function well during the day, and not be super sleepy.” READ MORE SLEEP TIPSpillow talk I'm a sleep coach -...
    Is there anything that can be done for my 80-year-old sister whose life is being made so miserable by tinnitus? Name and address supplied. Anyone who’s experienced tinnitus — where you hear a sound, such as ringing or buzzing, without an obvious external source — will know what a profound impact it can have on quality of life, including mood. Some people can find it extremely debilitating. Most tinnitus is linked to age-related hearing loss and damage to the nerve cells that help relay messages to the parts of the brain that process noise. One theory is that in the absence of true sound, the brain ‘makes up’ for it with its own sound. For this reason, simply using a hearing aid can often improve tinnitus. Understandably, some people with tinnitus experience low mood and use antidepressant medication such as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors). Most tinnitus is linked to age-related hearing loss and damage to the nerve cells that help relay messages to the parts of the brain that process noise For example, the SSRI escitalopram is proven to...
    DEAR HARRIETTE: I feel like I shoulder all the responsibility in my family. I am married, and my husband works and comes home every day — but that’s about it. He rarely helps with homework, housework or anything else. Harriette Cole  Honestly, we don’t spend much time together. We will be in the house for hours at a time, but he will be in one room and I will be in another. We basically coexist rather than having a friendship or close relationship. The most interaction we have is when one or both of us drink; then we argue. This is not the life I thought I would have after being married for a long time. I don’t want to accept that this is the best I can expect of my marriage. I have tried in the past to get him to be more engaged, but he just shrugs it off. How can I get him to want to spend time with me? If he won’t, should I think about getting a divorce? At Wit’s End DEAR AT WIT’S END:...

To achieve more consistent "poophoria," a gut health doctor suggested eating more fiber. You should also avoid pooping for more than 5 minutes and wiping your butthole aggressively. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Not every bowel movement is created equal.

When someone passes what Sheth called a "monster poo," the rectum enlarges to let it escape and then it decompresses quickly to eject poop. Monster poos come out in one big piece and are soft...
