It’s no fun sleeping little. If sleeping less than six hours you should take action and do some changes in your life. A post from Psycology today by Michael J. Breus, Ph.D. tells you more on what may make you to sleep more and live longer. Abstract:
In one study, researchers at Penn State College of Medicine found that:
- Men with chronic insomnia who got less than six hours of sleep a night, were four times more likely to die in a 14-year study than those who regularly got more rest. Weight and smoking habits were factored into the difference.
In another study, this one done in Australia, another group of researchers looked at the link between sleep and mental illnesses among young people and discovered that:
- Young adults who habitually slept fewer than five hours a night were three times more likely to develop psychiatric disorders than those that got eight to nine hours of shut-eye.
