4 Your Health: a bed time to-do list; the impact of bullying; women and alcohol

Posted: Updated:

Emergency room visits for alcohol related illness is on the rise.

That's according to new data from over 900 hospitals in 33 states.There were 61 percent more hospitalizations from drinking in 2014 compared to 2006. 

The increase was especially significant among women. Recent studies have shown women are catching up to men in both overall alcohol use and binge drinking.

How bullying affects children's health

New research from Canada finds teens who were severely bullied as children face a higher risk of mental health problems.

The study followed over 1,300 children until the age of 15. Victims of severe bullying were twice as likely to suffer from depression and three* times more likely to have anxiety than their peers. But most troubling, bullied teens were three and a half times more likely to have suicidal thoughts or actions.

Write it down before slumber

Jotting down your to-do list before bed could help you sleep better.

Researchers at Baylor University found people who wrote down future tasks fell asleep 9 minutes faster than those who wrote about what they had already done. Longer, more specific to-do lists were even more effective.

Experts said journaling seemed to ease people's stress and worry and help them relax at night.
