Press the snooze button ladies.
Researchers at Loughborough University's Sleep Research Center in Leicestershire, England say woman need more sleep than men because, obviously, their brains are more complex.
"Women's brains are wired differently. . . so their sleep need will be slightly greater, "says Professor Jim Horne, the director of the Sleep Research Center. 'Women tend to multi-task - they do lots at once and are flexible - and so they use more of their actual brain than men do. "
Wives around the world corroborated Horne's findings.
The professor also notes that poor sleep affects those with two x chromosomes more.
"For women, poor sleep is strongly associated with high levels of psychological distress and greater feelings of hostility, depression, and anger," he says. "In contrast, these feelings were not associated with the same degree of sleep disruption in men."
