Women need more sleep than men


How was your day? I hope it will be a great day. Today, I really find an interesting article. Yeah sometime my brothers always annoy me when he makes me look so ‘selebeh’ when I overslept. So woman, after this you can use it as your point when debating with men. Lulz !  dear readers, I hope you will enjoy this article and stop complaining about us (woman). Kekee :p
It's true ladies, the reason why you're grumpy is probably due to the fact that you're not sleeping enough as studies have shown that women tend to suffer more than men, both mentally and physically, if they're forced to sleep less.

Scientists at Duke University in North Carolina found that women had more depression, anger, and hostility early in the morning as compared to men.

Other factors that affect women who are sleep-deprived include a higher risk of heart disease, psychological problems, and extra clotting factors in their blood, which can lead to a stroke.

Also present are higher inflammation markers – often linked to pain, and indicate developing health problems. This means we can also literally be in more pain when we wake up. By contrast, the state of a man's health does not appear to be closely linked to how much they sleep.

Why do we need more sleep?

When we sleep, the brain is able to recover and repair itself and therefore it's vital for us to have enough shut-eye to function normally, and us women need at least 20-minutes more sleep than men because of our awesome multi-tasking brain!

Think about it, women are way better at multi-tasking (yeah, how many times have we heard men use that as an excuse not to get stuff done!) and are usually very flexible with how we manage ourselves – studies have even shown that most of us use more of the actual brain than men do!

Thus, the need for sleep is greater for us ladies and quite simply, the more you use your brain in a day, the more it needs to recover is the more sleep you need.

What about a man in a more complex and demanding job that requires a lot of decision making and lateral thinking, you may ask? Well, he may also need more sleep than the average male – but probably still not as much as a woman. Take that amigo!

How to overcome lack of sleep

Sleep more, Captain Obvious! Well, yes and no – what you need to do is take strategic naps; which means either 25 minutes OR 90 minutes long. Nothing more, nothing less as any other length will make the Sleeping Beauty waking up feeling worse!

So what's the lesson here? Men, the next time your woman is being a grumpy puss, just let her have a nap. She’s too tired so just let her sleep in a bit more. So let’s sleep as much as we can ladies, lulz !  k joking. 25-90 min only. Wassalam..

currently I'm keeping an eye on one person, but I'm not a nutty as a fruitcake. saranghae.
