Why do women need more sleep?
According to the Sleep Expert Jim Horne Study, Director of the renowned Loughborough Sleep Research Center in Great Britain, women use their brains much more intensively during the day than men and therefore have to recover longer. “One of the main functions of sleep is to allow the brain to recover and repair itself”the scientist told the Daily Mail, “The more you use your brain, the more sleep you will need. In deep sleep, the cerebral cortex, the part of the brain that is responsible for memory and language, among other things, is released from the senses and goes into recovery mode. “
We can hardly believe our luck. Finally, a scientist confirms exactly what we always knew in secret. Since the female brain is more complex and women tend to multitask, that is, we do more at the same time and are more mentally flexible, we use our brains more than men. This is precisely why our need for sleep is greater.
