Don’t Let #Sleep Deprivation Ruin Your Social Life

Sleep is vital to survival. A new study has found that being sleep-deprived can infect a person with contagious loneliness. With all the health benefits of sleep, it makes sense.

The study evaluated participants after undergoing sleep-deprivation. The people who were intentionally kept awake throughout the night appeared to be anti-social, even if they were typically known to be a happy-go-lucky character. Is the person just lonely to begin with or is it truly the sleep-deprivation to blame?

According to the surveys filled-out by volunteers after a sleepless night showed the outlook of participants was glib, exacerbated by the lack of sleep. The volunteers were especially feeling lonely without sleep. Cortisol levels were off and morale was low.

Based on the reactions of people who viewed interviews with the sleep-deprived volunteers, researchers determined that loneliness is contagious. Unknowing onlookers felt  lonely after watching the interviews. The volunteers themselves felt lonelier after watching their interviews.

The moral of the story? Maybe intimacy isn’t about the activity that goes on while in bed, but the quality of sleep you achieve when laying next to one another. Do your copilot a favor and decorate the room with a Red Light Night Light. Maybe she or he will thank you with hugs and kisses.
