Interrupted Sleep? No Wonder You’re Grumpy

I’m Erin White with today’s health news. For
many of us, a good night’s sleep is hard to come by. But if you’re looking to feel refreshed
— and happy — in the morning, you may want to rethink how you sleep. A new study
found that waking up several times throughout the night may be more detrimental to overall
positive mood than getting a shortened amount of sleep without interruption. According to
researchers, a lack of sufficient slow-wave sleep (meaning deep sleep), can significantly
affect different domains of positive mood, such as energy level and feelings of sympathy
and friendliness. Make sure to speak with your primary care doctor if you’re suffering
from poor sleep.
