A study shows that rich people tend to sleep better


More money, more sleep! A study shows that those who are 400 percent above the poverty line are more likely to have eight hours of rest each night

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have published a sleep study
  • The agency found that your sleep determines sleep
  • Only 55% of people below the poverty line slept eight hours
  • While 66.6% doing 400% of the line got a full night's sleep

A new study shows that the amount of money you have can affect how much sleep you get each night.

The researchers found that only 55 percent of those living below the poverty line said they slept seven to eight hours a night, compared to 66.6 percent of adults who earned 400 percent more.

Experts in the field suggest that those who sleep less, work longer or have more jobs due to lack of financial security.

On the other hand, wealthy people can afford to live in quieter areas or buy larger houses.

The survey was carried out by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who see sleep deprivation as an "epidemic of public health".

People with a lack of sleep are also more likely to suffer from chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, depression and obesity, as well as cancer, increased mortality and reduced quality of life and productivity, ”the CDC website said.

The organization surveyed 140,000 Americans between 2011 and 2014 to investigate sleep patterns.

The results showed that 55 percent of those who earned $ 11,670 to $ 23,850, the poverty line, slept seven to eight hours.

While 66.6 percent with an income of 400 percent more received a full night's sleep.

Dr. Neil Kline, a sleep doctor at the American Sleep Association, told CNN: "People with more resources can afford houses in quieter places – more space, less density, and better soundproofing."

"People with more resources can also afford more health care when it comes to sleep disorders."

Sleep was one of the main problems during the current coronavirus pandemic.

During this event, people sleep longer while subject to the lock recommendations, but the quality has dropped significantly.

Between March 23 and April 26, 2020, researchers from the University of Basel asked 435 people how the blockade affected their sleep cycles.

A major reason for this, researchers say, is the lack of "social jet lag".

Social jet lag is a term used to describe the fatigue and exhaustion caused by burning the candle on both ends and sacrificing sleep to spend time with friends and family.

Under normal conditions, like before the pandemic, people usually sleep a lot more on weekends than during the working week.

However, the ban has eliminated social jet lag, so sleep cycles have become more even over the course of seven days.

Cognitive neuroscientist Christine Blume, who led the research, said: "Typically, we would expect a decrease in social jet lag to be associated with reports of improved sleep quality."

However, overall sleep quality decreased in our sample.

"We believe that the self-perceived burden that has increased significantly during this unprecedented COVID-19 lockout could have outweighed the otherwise beneficial effects of reduced social jetlag."

HOW TO COME WITH SLEEP PROBLEMS

Poor sleep can cause worry, and worry can lead to poor sleep, according to Mind, a mental health charity.

A lack of closed eyes is considered a problem when it affects a person's daily life.

As a result, they may feel anxious if they think lack of sleep is preventing them from rationalizing their thoughts.

Insomnia is also linked to depression, psychosis and PTSD.

If you set up a sleep routine in which you go to bed and get up at the same time each day, a person can spend less time in bed and more time in sleep.

Soothing music, breathing exercises, visualization of pleasant memories and meditation also promote the closing of the eye.

If you don't have time for technology about an hour before bed, you can also prepare for sleep.

If you're still having trouble falling asleep, keeping your doctor's sleep diary can be a good thing, recording the hours you spend sleeping and the quality of your closed eyes on a scale of one to five.

Also note how often you wake up at night, when you need to take a nap, when you have nightmares, your diet, and your general mood.

Sleep disorders can be a sign of an underlying physical condition, such as B. pain.

Talk therapies can help you identify unhelpful thought patterns that may affect sleep.

While medications like sleeping pills can help break short periods of insomnia and return to a better sleep pattern.
