Women Need More Sleep Than Men! Find Out The Reasons.

Women are more complex than men. They’re basically obsessive beings, until and unless they find solutions to their problems they can’t sleep. Another reason that makes them complex is that the number of problems they have is infinite. The problems can vary from losing a hairpin to losing their credit cards. Even though they remember all the minute details about a fight, yet they tend to forget the place where they kept their keys or wallets.

Multi-tasking uses more energy and hence, they require enough rest.

Women have the ability to perform two or more tasks at the same time, like they can cook and talk on the phone at the same time. Similarly, they can drive and put on their makeup. See all this multitasking requires energy, the more energy they utilize, the more their body and brain exhaust. In turn, the more sleep they require.


They need quality sleeping in order to balance their stress levels.

Jim Horne, a Professor at Loughborough University in England, says, “For women, poor sleep is strongly associated with high levels of psychological distress and greater feelings of hostility, depression, and anger.” She continues, “These feelings were not associated with the same degree of sleep disruption in men.”


Different wiring, different needs.

An average of seven hours of sleep is enough for most of the people around the world, but in women, the normal eight-hour sleep isn’t enough. This all varies due to the different wiring in the brain of men and women as explained by the professor.
It isn’t that men don’t have complex jobs or that they don’t suffer from stress or that they are mentally stronger than women. It all comes down to mental energy expenditure, women simply use it more than men do.


The more  you use your brain during the day, the more it needs to recover and consequently, the more sleep you need.

The science of sleep indicates that we require sleep to repair our brain and the recovery of it. The part of the brain that is responsible for thoughts, memory, language namely cortex, goes into recovery mode and hence it is able to function the next day. It’s very similar to using a machine, let’s say a laptop. Throughout the day you have to put your laptop on sleep or rest mode for it to function better and not heat up. In case you don’t give it a rest, it’ll start heating up or will start hanging. On the contrary, your laptop might suffer the heat ups if you over charge it.


Likewise, our brain requires rest and needs to go into that not thinking stage for us to evaluate adequately and perform fully the next day. Professor explains that men who have more decision making to do and have a complicated job, they too require sleeping more than others. Lack of sleep leads to poor decision making, stress, and anxiety. So sleep away your varies people!
