According to the analysis of 905 mother-child pairs, which was conducted in Hong Kong, gaining too much weight could put your offspring at an increased risk of insulin resistance and high blood pressure.

This emphasis comes off the back of the new academic field of “happiness studies”, which has emerged as a credible science – with its own research centres and academic journals – since the turn of the 21st century.

A study conducted by the University of Oxford explored the way in which people’s sleeping habits have changed between the 1970s and today. The study, which was published in the Journal of Sleep Research, found that Brits are sleeping approximately 43 minutes more than they were in the 1970s, with the majority of adults going to bed half an hour earlier and waking up around 15 minutes later. This is due to a decline in what the researchers described as “work-sleep conflict”, meaning that Brits are finding it easier to balance the demands of work with a good night’s sleep.
