Having a Sense of Purpose May Help Have a Better Sleep
According to a new study from Northwestern University, having a sense of purpose in life can significantly lower the risk of sleep problems and improve sleep quality.
Having analyzed the data received from 823 adults aged between 60 and 100 years concerning their sleep habits and outlook in life, the scientists concluded that those who said their lives had more meaning were 63% less likely to have sleep apnea, and 52% less likely to have restless leg syndrome. These people also have moderately better sleep quality overall.
Lead researcher of the study Jason Ong says: “Helping people cultivate a purpose in life could be an effective drug-free strategy to improve sleep quality, particularly for a population that is facing more insomnia.”
