Forget getting in shape for the wedding … Now, it's all about getting in shape for the proposal. There are two reasons this is happening: One, according to The Knot, 1 in 4 couples said they had talked about marriage two years or more before getting engaged, and 1 in 3 couples shop for the ring together. So there's no real "surprise" about the proposal. The second reason is social media. According to Brides magazine's 2016 American Wedding Survey, 60 percent of couples took engagement photos, and 39 percent posted photos and/or video of the actual proposal on social media.

Do you sleep with your phone near your bed? You are not alone. Over 70 percent of people sleep with their phone within arm's reach. And that figure jumps to 90 percent among Millennials. (Survey Monkey

         

Speaking of phone addiction … Have you ever been looking at Twitter or Facebook only to realize a half hour or more has gone by without you even knowing it? A new study has found that people addicted to social media may have a distorted sense of time. According to study author Ofir Turel, of the University of Southern California and Cal State Fullerton, this distorted sense of time is a trait of addiction in general. "Distortion of time perception is a hallmark feature of many addictive and problematic behaviors. For example, 'addicted' video gamers perceive their sessions to be shorter than they actually are; heavy smokers think that the between-cigarettes time interval is longer than it actually is; and obese people perceive that the between-meals time intervals are longer than they actually are."

Saving up for avocado toast … A new survey says 16 percent of Millennials -- that’s one-in-every-six -- has $100,000 in savings. That's double the number of young people who had that kind of money socked away in 2015. Despite the stereotypes, Millennials are actually doing a good job of following their personal budgets and are capitalizing on a booming stock market. (San Francisco Chronicle
