The brain of a man is different that the brain of a woman – the complexities of a woman’s brain has scientists saying that women need more sleep than men. Professor Jim Horne from Loughborough University in England said that poor sleep for women is linked to high levels of psychological distress and increased feelings of anger, hostility, and depression.
He added that those feelings were not linked to the same degree to the sleep disruption in men. Professor Horne learned that women’s brains are wired differently and that women may need more sleep.
The recommended eight hours per night isn’t what everyone needs – some people may only need seven hours each night. Why are women’s brains different? Women do more multitasking during the day and use their brains are used more strenuously. This means that a woman will need more time to recover and getting more sleep is the best way to do that.
