Have you ever heard the old adage, the sun should never set on an argument? Well, there may some truth to it according to new research that says anger is wreaking havoc with your sleep.
It's a pretty simple link say the psychologists who conducted the study with over 400 participants at Iowa State University. They found, "being prone to anger may lead to poor sleep and that anger and sleep are intimately connected." And, it's not just your mind keeping you awake, it comes as no surprise that our bodies don't respond well to frustration either!
It's no wonder that anger increases your cardiovascular activity which keeps you awake for hours after the lights are out.
The findings come after participants' sleep was monitored after they’d completed questionnaires about their levels of anger. Not getting enough sleep has been linked to a range of side effects including; a decrease in mental health and your general happiness, weight gain, increased irritability and poor productivity at work.
