Dibs on the snooze button: Researchers at the Loughborough University Sleep Research Center in England just confirmed that–in order to function normally–women need more sleep than men.
The reason? Women’s brains actually work a lot harder than guys’, meaning women need more time to recuperate.
According to researchers, women’s brains are actually more complex, making them amazing multitaskers blessed with the ability to react flexibly to ever-changing circumstances. The only problem is that a lack of sleep takes a serious toll a woman’s well-being.
