Why Women Should Sleep More Than Men

There is a lot of information on the internet supporting the fact that women live longer than men. This time, researchers are also saying women need to sleep more. According to Jim Horne, a sleep expert, women need a time advantage of twenty minutes more than the men, because they tend to multitask , and do a lot of things at once, therefore they use more of their brain than then the men.

Researchers from Duke University have discovered that, compared to men, women experience more mental and physical consequences from inadequate rest.

According to the research, women suffer more than men, both mentally and physically, if they are forced to skimp on their sleep. As well as a higher risk of heart disease, depression and psychological problems, sleep-deprived women have extra clotting factors in their blood, which can lead to a stroke. They also have higher inflammation markers, which indicate developing health problems.

The study estimated men and women’s respective needs for sleep by assessing their ability to deal with insufficient rest and noticed a sharp difference between genders. The results showed that women had more depression, women had more anger, and women had more hostility early in the morning.

So, guys, if the woman in your life woke up grumpy this morning, don’t be too hard on her. It is, apparently, only natural.

To all you ladies, I would say you treat yourself regularly to a good sleep. Today might be a good time to start, don’t you think?

Have a restful day!
